CALL FOR APPLICANTS — IAHS Early Career Committee

Early Career scientists make up a significant amount of our community, creating an opportunity to include a new generation of hydrologists as active contributors to IAHS. 

During its Bureau Meeting in July 2017 IAHS decided to strengthen its early career scientist representation to enable more active participation of those members within IAHS Commissions and Working Groups.  An Early Career Committee (ECC) was created consisting of the Early Career Representative of each IAHS Commission plus a chair and co-chair. The first two-year mandate started at the IUGG General Assembly in 2019 and was extended to end at the IAHS Scientific Assembly in Montpellier in 2022. 

A call is made for applicants for all Commissions for the second term of three years which commences during the IAHS Scientific Assembly in Montpellier in May 2022.

The IAHS definition of early career embraces scientists up to 5 years after completion of the PhD (allowing for an extra year per child for parents if they took parental leave).

More information on the IAHS Commissions and Early Career Committee is available on the IAHS website. 

If you are interested in becoming an Early Career Scientist Representative for one of the IAHS Commissions, you can apply by completing the form by 21 December 2021. The ECC embraces equal opportunity for all its members, and strives to have a diverse composition in terms of gender and geography.

Please don’t hesitate to contact the IAHS secretariat and individuals involved in the commission if you have any questions.
