The Ecosystem Studies of the Subarctic and Arctic Seas (ESSAS) program is inviting nominations for Early Career Researchers (ECRs) interested in the impacts of climate change on high-latitude marine ecosystems to join its Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) for a three-year renewable term.
ESSAS is a regional program under the Integrated Marine Biosphere Research (IMBeR) project. The SSC is responsible for the development, planning and implementation of science with the goal to “compare, quantify and predict the impact of climate variability on the productivity and sustainability of Subarctic and Arctic marine ecosystems”.
ESSAS are seeking members from any of the countries bordering the Arctic, or any country with active research programs in the Arctic. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Nominees with expertise in any aspect of high-latitude marine ecosystems will be considered. This includes but is not limited to oceanography, integrated modelling of socio-ecological-economic systems, Indigenous knowledge, and marine policy/governance science.
