- Reviewers for student scholarships
If you are interested in volunteering, please submit your information on this form. We appreciate your support!
Early Career Committee Update
The Atmospheric Science Section Early Career Committee is currently planning events throughout 2024 and for the Annual Meeting. Our events focus on career options for atmospheric scientists, professional skill development, DEI discussions, and seminars for early career researchers to present their work. If you have any suggestions for events you would like to see happen either virtually or in-person at the Annual Meeting, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Call for Abstracts for our Early Career Seminar Series
The Early Career Committee is seeking abstracts for the ongoing Atmospheric Sciences Early Career seminar series! This series is an opportunity for graduate students and early-career scientists (<10 years since receiving their highest degree) to showcase their work and to create potential new collaborations and networks. This would be similar to an invited talk that can be added to your CV! Seminars are recorded and put up on the AGU youtube channel and our website. If you are interested or know somebody who is, please fill out this form by Wednesday, February 21 with a title and short abstract for your presentation.
The committee will be assessing abstract submissions across four categories:
- Abstract readability - is it logically organized and easily comprehensible? Are the main ideas and supporting points clear?
- Accessibility to a general scientific audience - does the abstract contain un-explained technical jargon? Is it easily understandable to a scientist from a different discipline?
- Societal impact of research topic - does the abstract attempt to make a connection between the work and potential societal impacts? This connection can be broad or specific, depending on the nature of the work.
- Science impact of research topic - is a clear connection drawn between the research topic and the impact of the work on the domain-specific field?
In addition, if you would like to be considered for serving as a moderator at a seminar session, you may indicate that in the above form as well (even if you do not wish to submit an abstract). Please feel free to reach out to the committee by email (email@example.com) if you have any questions or comments.
