The PoLSciNex Action Group is recruiting a small number of fellows who can:
- Plan, organize and execute a focused panel/seminar on the theme, in close consultation with Professor Akiho Shibata, one of the co-leads of the Action Group;
- Convene a live seminar, preferably in-person (with a possibility of some presenters participating online) during the SC-HASS Conference in Kobe, Japan; and
- Prepare, collect and edit papers and reports from the seminar for potential publication in The Polar Journal or another high-impact journal.
The fellowship covers full travel and accommodation expenses (most economical tickets and accommodation reserved and purchased by the designated travel agency) and/or research grants amounting up to JPY 250,000 per person upon successful publication of related papers in a journal (under the contract with Prof. Shibata and in accordance with the Kobe University financial rules). There is a section for this purpose in the abstract submission portal.
Details of the fellowship will be provided after pre-selection of candidates in August based on the abstract and the explanation.
Full details of the SC-HASS conference are available on the Conference website.
