CALL for GRANTS for BSG Post-Graduate Training Workshop 2019

CALL for IAG GRANTS for the BSG Post-Graduate Training Workshop

Windsor, UK, 9-12th December 2019

 

The International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG/AIG) offers 2 grants of 300 (three-hundred) Euros to PhD STUDENTS in GEOMORHOLOGY from EUROPE (except UK) who are willing to take part in the BSG Post-Graduate Training Workshop (Windsor, UK, 9-12th December 2019). PhD students at an early stage of their PhD programme are encouraged to apply. The Workshop is organised by the British Society for Geomorphology (BSG) and recognised by the International Association of Geomorphologists (IAG). The course will provide PhD students with elements of training for research and with an opportunity to meet others at an early stage of their training when they were wrestling with the problems of research design etc.

The workshop has been running at the fantastic Cumberland Lodge in Windsor Great Park for over 30 years – many notable researchers and academics have been and benefited from this course!

The content is non-technical, but provides training in project management, group work, dealing with large data sets, fieldwork, lab and numerical modelling, gaining funding as well as publication and future career development. Students will also meet a wide variety of academics and facilitators who are practicing researchers as well as the BSG postgrad representatives on the Executive. The BSG chair normally gives an entertaining evening talk.

The cost of the course is heavily subsidised for BSG postgraduate research members (non members need to join the BSG at the excellent value postgraduate rate of £45 for four years). This provides full evening meals, lunches, tea/coffee breaks (Monday afternoon to Thursday lunchtime) and accommodation in the ‘up market’ environment of Cumberland Lodge in Windsor Great Park. As well as being a former home to royalty, Cumberland lodge features in several feature films including the Kings Speech.

CALL for GRANTS for the 7th International Conference on Mars Polar Science and Exploration

Call for Grants for the 7th International Conference on Mars Polar Science and Exploration

Ushuaia, Argentina, 13-17 January 2020

The International Association of Geomorphologists offers 2 grants of 500 euros to favour the participation of Young Geomorphologists* (Planetary Geomorphologists) from Latin America but not mainly based in Argentina in the 7th International Conference on Mars Polar Science and Exploration organized by the Planetary Science Institute- York University and the Space Research and Planetary Sciences-University of Bern, among others, with the support of the Centro Austral de Investigaciones Cientificas (CADIC-CONICET).

Secondly, the call is extended to other YGs* (Planetary Geomorphologists) from the National Members of IAG with a regular position (annual fees have been paid and are therefore listed on our website).

Applications from candidates who already achieved one or more IAG grants totalling 500 euros or more in the past 3 years will not be eligible.

The Conference is the latest in a continuing series of conferences intended to promote the exchange of knowledge and ideas regarding the polar regions of Mars. This group is international and interdisciplinary, and welcomes any interested scientist with relevant theoretical, experimental, or field experience. The focus will also be on terrestrial analogs that can enhance the interpretation of remote sensing data from Mars, and on concepts for future missions.

For further information on the Congress, please visit:
