Organizers invite applications for a Community Earth System Model (CESM) Polar Modeling Workshop for early career scientists. This workshop will convene 12-16 August 2019 in Boulder, Colorado.

The workshop is supported by the National Science Foundation and will include around 20 early career polar scientists. Early career scientists include graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and those within seven years of receiving a PhD.

Workshop participants will gain hands-on experience planning, designing, executing, and analyzing earth system modeling experiments to understand changing polar climates and to explore better methods to integrate models and observations. Participants will engage in advanced activities focused specifically on capacity building for using CESM in polar research (e.g., sea ice, land ice, atmosphere, ocean, land, paleoclimate).

The workshop will follow directly from the Annual CESM Tutorial, held 5-9 August 2019. Prospective participants who have not attended the CESM Tutorial should apply for both the CESM Tutorial and the CESM Polar Modeling Workshop. Prospective participants who have previously attended the CESM Tutorial (or have equivalent experience) should apply for just the CESM Polar Modeling Workshop.

Admitted participants will receive travel funding to cover airfare, lodging, and per diem during the workshop.

Applications must be completed online at https://goo.gl/forms/CvRemR7262HzRN3I2. Additional application materials, including a curriculum vitae and letter of reference, will be requested at the end of the online form.

Application deadline: 8 March 2019
