2. Graduate Student Summer Program
Arctic Atmosphere, Cryosphere, and Climate
University of Toronto Connaught Institute
14-18 July 2014
Alliston, Ontario, Canada

The University of Toronto seeks applicants to the 2014 Connaught Summer
Institute in Arctic Science: Atmosphere, Cryosphere, and Climate. This
opportunity is intended for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows
engaged in Arctic research. The program is offered 14-18 July 2014 and
will be held in Alliston, Ontario, Canada.

This institute aims to provide an understanding of the Arctic climate
and processes that control it and to establish an interdisciplinary
forum in which participants can discuss current challenges and identify
emerging research opportunities. Topics will include environmental
change in the Arctic, limnology, aerosol-cryosphere-climate
interactions, climate modeling, aerosol-radiative forcing, cryospheric
processes, Arctic sea ice geophysics and ocean-ice-atmosphere
interactions, paleoclimatology, Arctic ocean dynamics, carbon capture
and storage, ocean biogeochemistry and carbon cycling in Arctic waters,
Arctic atmospheric composition, ozone science, and Inuit history and
culture.

Students will participate in professional development activities; engage
in a diverse career panel discussion; develop strategies for linking
scientific knowledge to public engagement, education, and outreach; and
present their own research during a poster session.

Admission to the Summer Institute includes all on-site food and
accommodation. A chartered bus will be available to take attendees to
and from downtown Toronto. Attendees are responsible for travel between
their home institution and Toronto or Alliston.

Application deadline: Friday, 30 May 2014.

Applications, including curriculum vitae and a short letter of support
from the applicants supervisor, should be submitted via email
(csi-arctic-science@atmosp.physics.utoronto.ca).
