Now Accepting Applications: Early Career Researcher Professional Development Training

2.19.2018 (Mon)

We are pleased to announce our third Early Career Researcher Professional Development Training designed for graduate students, postdocs, and early career researchers (i.e., graduated within the last five years) from any discipline conducting climate-related research with relevance to the south-central U.S. (i.e., New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, or Texas/Louisiana coast).


This immersive five-day training will include a series of lectures, team activities, and field trips exploring Louisiana’s water and climate challenges. Participants will have the unique opportunity to converse with scientists, communicators, stakeholders, and decision-makers dealing with ‘on the ground’ environmental and climate impacts. Participants will learn effective communication strategies for sharing their research, how to develop multi-disciplinary research proposals, engaging in actionable science, and team-building.
