Arctic Frontiers student workshop 2016

Also in 2016 ARCTOS is organising a student workshop in conjunction with Arctic Frontiers. As part of the workshop, participants have to attend the entire conference and give a presentation (oral or poster) at Arctic Frontiers Science.

After the conference, the students will embark on a 5-day seminar to Svolvær, Lofoten, during which they will prepare a proposal for funding to an imaginary research grant. During the workshop, there will be lectures about proposal writing as well as cultural events (visiting art gallery, museum, etc.). The workshop is multidisciplinary and thus suitable for students from all scientific fields.

PhD students are prioritised but Master students and Post-docs may apply as well. The workshop is an official PhD level course (BIO-8516) at the Arctic University of Norway in Tromsø worth 4 ECTS (only PhD students can receive credits). Travel and conference funding will be available for course participants. To be eligible for the course, applicants must have a poster or oral presentation accepted at Arctic Frontiers Science.
