About the series
NSF Office of Polar Program (OPP) Officers and the Polar Science Early Career Community Office (PSECCO) will host a chat for early career scientists.
The first hour of the call will be share an entry-level overview of the Office of Polar Programs, and information directly relevant to polar early career scientists. Some questions that may be covered on the call include:
- What is a program officer and why it is relevant to know them?
- What sorts of questions might be good to ask a program officer as a polar early career scientist considering on putting in a proposal?
- How should early career scientists best stay updated on solicitations?
- What are some current opportunities that the NSF OPP would like to highlight for early career scientists?
During the last thirty minutes of the call, early career scientists will have an opportunity to ask program officers questions and/or engage in general conversation as a group related to OPP and NSF funding.
