Resort Hotel Olivean Shodoshima, Shodoshima Island, Japan

Join the 2018 iCACGP/IGAC Early Career Short Course and be part of a group of 40 promising early career atmospheric scientists from across the globe. The course aims to foster professional friendship and collaboration among the future leaders of atmospheric chemistry research. Investing in future leaders is a vital part of both iCACGP and IGAC’s mission to foster international atmospheric chemistry research towards a sustainable world.

The iCACGP/IGAC Early Career Short Course will provide a platform for early career scientists from around the world to come together and create an international network amongst peers that will foster international scientific collaborations for years to come. The course will build on your strong scientific education and research received during your PhD and/or postdoc by introducing you to new ideas, concepts, and skills.

Lectures and workshops will be given by leaders within their field, including IGAC and iCACGP scientific steering committee members.

Sessions will focus on:

  1. Connecting modelling, observations and laboratory studies
  2. The future of atmospheric chemistry
  3. Engaging in science-policy
  4. Summarising, collaborating and communicating

The short course will also include a dinner with IGAC and iCACGP scientific steering committee members. Practice networking skills and talk to the established scientists who play a key role in shaping the current objectives of IGAC.

There are only 40 positions in the 2018 iCACGP/IGAC Early Career Short Course, so if you are a current student or within three years of completing your PhD, make sure to apply!


There is no registration fee to attend the Early Career Short Course. The selected 40 participants will have their lodging and meals for the duration of the short course paid for. Participants are responsible for airfare, unless they receive an Early Career Travel Grant to attend the 2018 joint 14th iCACGP Quadrennial Symposium/15th IGAC Science Conference that includes airfare.  For more information on Early Career Travel Grants, please visit this webpage.
