IGAC Early Career Program

IGAC has a strong focus on engaging the next generation of atmospheric scientists through its early career program.  These scientists join an international network early in their career that creates relationships that facilitate atmospheric chemistry research at an international level for years to come.

IGAC cultivates the next generation of scientists by:

  • Providing early career travel grant to IGAC sponsored events;
  • Hosting the IGAC Early Career Short Course and the Early Career Program as part of the biennial IGAC Science Conferences; and
  • Profiling an early career scientist in each issue of IGACnews.

IGAC Early Career Short 

The IGAC Early Career Short take places biennial the three days prior to the IGAC Science Conference.  The Early Career Short Course aims to provide an opportunity for these selected early career scientists to learn career skills and to build a network amongst their peers.
