This week an expanded and redesigned Early Career Climate Forum(ECCF) will be launched as part of the Northeast Climate Science Center (NE CSC) funded project “Early Career Climate Communications and Networking”.
The redesign and relaunch is being led by Drs Michelle Staudinger, Science Coordinator of the NE CSC, and Ezra Markowitz, Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Conservation at UMass Amherst.
The Early Career Climate Forum (ECCF) is a science-based, unbiased venue for communication, collaboration, and professional development for early career scientists working on climate change. The primary purpose of the ECCF is to support and build a national network of early career scholars, provide an online platform to facilitate and increase information sharing and networking across the DOI CSCs and consortium institutions.
The new website and related products include a climate-focused blog with weekly posts from regular and guest writers; an interactive discussion board on climate, adaptation, and early-career focused discussion for members; information on career resources including climate-related job boards, listservs, professional development resources, fellowship opportunities, and writing and communication tools.
The ECCF will also provide an email listserv that allows dissemination of information to members about new research, funding opportunities, and career resources. Climate-related career resources, webinar announcements, requests for proposals, or communication tools can be shared with the ECCF community by sending an email directly to the ECCF listserv: firstname.lastname@example.org. Those interested in joining the listserv or that have questions can contact the ECCF at email@example.com.
