The ESA invites Early Career Ecologists to submit an expression of interest to act as an ESA representative at the Beijing INTECOL meeting, August 20-25 2017. The International Network of Next Generation Ecologists (INNGE) will have a high profile at the meeting and there will be workshops and sessions organised specifically for early career ecologists.
There is an opportunity for the successful candidate to submit a late abstract to present at the conference. The ESA representative will have partial funding support from ESA ($1200), and can apply for additional support from INTECOL. The ESA will also be represented by the VP-Research, who will be attending INTECOL and formally meeting with the INTECOL board and presidents of other national ecological societies discuss ideas for improving communication among international ecology organisations. The selected Early Career Ecologist will also have an opportunity to feed in to these discussions via the VP-Research.
If selected, you will need to submit an abstract for a contributed paper to the congress by 21 July 2017. You will also need to register for the congress and make appropriate travel arrangements which will be partly reimbursed to by the ESA, as outlined above.
