Early Career Scientists (ECS) make up a significant portion of the SOLAS community. To better represent the unique insights and opinions of this critical group at international levels, and to provide future generation scientists with networking and collaboration opportunities, SOLAS initiates the self-organised ECS Committee to act as a strategic and operational body to advise, coordinate and champion early career activities.
SOLAS welcomes applications from graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty members who have received their latest degree within 10 years. Candidates from developing countries are explicitly encouraged to apply. The committee members are appointed for a 3-year term or until they cannot be defined as an Early Career Scientist anymore. The first committee will be elected by the SOLAS Scientific Steering Committee (SSC). In addition, the ECS committee chair will be appointed to the SOLAS SSC as the representative of ECS committee.
The call for (self-) nominations is now open until 25th November 2022, 23:59 pm, CST. More information, including responsibilities, eligibility, and application procedure, can be found here.
