DIMA Workshop announcement for ECRs

8th July 2019

Calling Early Career Researchers! Are you interested in making connections with Russian ECRs and possibly developing collaborations?   There is a chance to meet with other UK and Russian researchers at a workshop in September (16-19) in Southampton. Expenses for the meeting are covered for participants.

The Russian scientists come from Siberia and the Russian Far East.  The workshop is part of the activities of a network focused on long-term environmental change called DIMA (https://research.ncl.ac.uk/dima/). Areas of interest include long-term (late-Quaternary) environmental change and recent change related to the Anthropocene. The focus is from 50 N northward, on tundra and boreal forest ecosystems and permafrost-affected systems, and methods include a range of palaeoecological, ecological and remote-sensing approaches.

If you are interested, we have a few funded places left for UK ECRs . Please send a paragraph giving us a brief background and saying why you are interested in joining the workshop in an email .
