The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) is launching an international call for bids to host the International Directorate Office for the organization. Hosting of the APECS International Directorate Office will begin in January 2022.

The International Directorate of APECS serves as the main contact point for members and partners, coordinating the day-to-day management of the organization, providing support for APECS activities, projects, and committees while also providing continuity and institutional memory of the dynamic organization. It currently includes one full-time position of an Executive Director and a half-time position of an Administrative Assistant.

APECS is the preeminent international and interdisciplinary organization for early career researchers with interests in Polar and Alpine regions and the wider Cryosphere. With the current funding agreements for the APECS International Directorate at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Potsdam coming to an end in January 2022, APECS is looking for a new host and potentially additional sponsor(s) starting 31 January 2022 or earlier.

Bids can be sent in from institutions interested in being:

  • A host and sponsor of the International Directorate Office,
  • A partial sponsor (but no hosting) of the International Directorate Office,
  • A host and sponsor of a sub-office of the International Directorate, or
  • A partial sponsor (but no hosting) of a sub-office of the International Directorate.

Contact the current APECS Executive Director Josefine Lenz (info [at] apecs.is) to express interest before 31 March 2021, as well as for any questions.

Deadline to submit bids: 31 May 2021
