Advanced students and PhD graduates conducting research in the Arctic or Antarctic during the International Polar Year are invited to apply for the New Generation of Polar Researchers (NGPR) Symposium being held on 4-11 May 2008 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Applications must be submitted by Monday, 15 October 2007. Complete application information is available at: http://www.disccrs.org/ngpr/apply.html
Scholars from the full range of natural and social sciences are eligible. While the focus is on the U.S. system with preference given for American citizens and U.S. residents, a few slots will be reserved for citizens of any country who are residing outside the U.S. and demonstrate interests in working with U.S. researchers. Applicants who complete their degree between 1 January 2002 and 31 March 2009 are eligible to apply.
Funded by the National Science Foundation through Whitman College and University of Colorado, the NGPR Symposium will consist of research presentations and perspectives on the history and future of polar research by International Geophysical Year veterans and other polar experts. The symposium provides an open forum for discussions that will lead to cross-fertilization of research ideas and techniques for educational outreach. The net result should be expansion of participants' historical, scientific, and professional outlook.
