Photo credit: cpt.spock on flickrThe seventh annual Interdisciplinary Climate Change Research Symposium will be held at the La Foret Conference and Retreat Center in Colorado Springs from October 13th to 20th this year, with applications due on February 29th, 2012. Participation is limited to 30 early-career scholars, whose Ph.D. requirements were completed between August 1st, 2009 and February 29th, 2012. A description of the DISCCRS from the call for applications: “Since 2003, DISCCRS has hosted symposia for early-career researchers to catalyze formation of interdisciplinary collegial networks, while fostering skills to better prepare graduates to conduct collaborative research and respond to the myriad challenges posed by climate change and its impacts. Participants will share their research; engage in discussions with peers, mentors, and funding agency representatives; and participate in communication and team training. Thirty early-career scholars will be selected through a review process with the expectation that invitees will become leaders in their chosen fields. Airfare and on-site expenses are supported through grants from NSF and NASA.” For more, see:
