The DISsertations initiative for the advancement of Climate Change ReSearch
(DISCCRS, pronounced *discourse*) hosts symposia for early-career climate
change researchers. Our goal is to catalyze international,
interdisciplinary collegial networks and foster collaborative
interdisciplinary research and dynamic interactions between science and
society to enable us to better understand and respond to the myriad
challenges posed by climate change.

During the weeklong symposium, 30 competitively selected recent Ph.D.
graduates will share their research, engage in discussions with peers,
mentors, and funding agency representatives, and hone their teambuilding
and communication skills. Most importantly, scholars will depart from the
symposium with a collegial peer network that extends across the full range
of climate science. For an overview of recent symposium scholars, visit:

Eligibility: Ph.D. requirements completed between September 1, 2010 –
February 28, 2013 in any field. Applicants should be conducting research
relevant to the study of climate change, its impacts, or its societal
implications. We encourage applicants from the biological, physical, and
social sciences, mathematics, engineering, and other fields. While U.S.
citizens and residents have preference, some funds are available for
non-U.S. participants.
