Registration deadline approaching - APECS Career Development Workshop at the IUGG conference - 27th June 2011

Atkinson, Helen
For the attention of all early career scientists attending the IUGG conference in Melbourne in June

The registration deadline is fast approaching for the APECS Career Development Workshop on Monday 27th June 2011.

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together early career polar researchers, those interested in starting a polar research project, and senior mentors with the experience to offer advice and inspiration. The workshop will consist of plenary lectures, hands-on breakout sessions, and panel discussions.

Whilst the workshop will have a polar theme, it is open to all early career researchers. Participants will learn from experienced mentors, developing the transferrable skills vital for a successful career in polar science which are not necessarily taught in all Universities or Research Institutions. An exciting schedule of plenary lectures, hands-on breakout sessions and panel discussions will make this a highly informative and enjoyable day for all early career researchers!

Specific subjects to be addressed are:
* science communication and working with the media
* managing polar research projects and international collaborations
* writing proposals and finding funding
* using video and animations to present your research
* non-academic careers in polar science.

In addition to sharing expertise in the skills required to succeed in polar science, this workshop will also provide an opportunity for international networking and a platform for potential future collaborations, both fundamentally important for the future of polar science.

We look forward to welcoming you to Melbourne in June!
