APECS and the manufacturer of extreme-weather outerwear, Canada Goose®, are teaming up to highlight the work done by polar early career researchers and to keep them warm during the Where does your Goose take you? program. APECS and Canada Goose® are looking for APECS members who will be actively doing field work in the Arctic or the Antarctic during 2014/15. Early career researchers working in either polar region and in any discipline are encouraged to apply.
Each selected Where does your Goose take you? participant will be given a Canada Goose® Expedition Jacket. They will work with the project coordinators (from the APECS leadership) to write two blog entries throughout the year, highlighting their polar research (science program, field sites, travel, workshops, field courses etc.), which will be posted along with photographs from the field on the Canada Goose® and APECS websites as well as relevant social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.). Participants will also work with the project coordinators to select photos from all participants that will be used to highlight their research locations on an interactive map.
To apply to be a Where does your Goose take you? participant or to ask questions about the program please contact Jennifer Provencher at email@example.com. The deadline is March 31st. Applications must include:
- a description of your research (including purpose, methods, locations and projected field schedule for 2014-2015; maximum 2 pages)
- your CV
- images (no more than 6 please) that show your research program and field locations which highlight the type of work you do, the field location, etc. (hint: if you have not had a field season yet, the pictures can be taken by someone else in your group)
