New SCAR Fellowships for Early Career Researchers

SCAR has two new calls for fellowship applications for early career/mid-career scientists, see links for details about these programs and how to apply:

The Science Group Fellowship: This program is designed to encourage the active involvement of early and mid-career researchers in the work of the permanent, disciplinary Science Groups (SGs) to mentor potential future SCAR leaders and promote professional development. A fellow will be assigned to each of the three SGs – Geosciences, Life Sciences and Physical Sciences (see also the SCAR organizational chart).

The Ant-ICON/SC-ATS Fellowship: This is a science-policy fellowship programme for early-mid career researchers (EMCRs). The aim of the fellowship programme is to provide the opportunity for EMCRs to gain experience in the science-policy interface from participating in Antarctic policy forums through the preparation and potential submission of a science/policy paper based on their research, in collaboration with the SCAR Standing Committee on the Antarctic Treaty System (SC-ATS). The fellowship programme will fund two fellows in 2024: one to participate in the CEP/ATCM meetings in Kochi, India from 20 - 30 May 2024 (expected start date in January 2024), and one to participate in the SC-CAMLR/CCAMLR meetings in Hobart, TAS, Australia in October 2024.
