Early-Career Short Course

The weekend prior to the 2016 IGAC Science Conference, 35 selected early-career scientists from around the world will come together for a three-day intensive short course. The short course will provide an opportunity for these selected early-career scientists to learn career skills and to build a network amongst their peers to facilitate atmospheric chemistry research at an international level for years to come.

Application deadline: 15 April 2016
