To participate in the survey, please go to:

The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) is conducting a survey to help understand current thinking in the early career polar scientist community. Are you excited by your fieldwork, do you work long hours, do you have control over your research direction, do you worry about money, what do you like best about your research environment? The answers to these questions will both inform the larger polar community of how the polar research field is viewed and provide a benchmark by which changes in polar research between now and the next IPY can by historically gauged.

If you are involved in polar research as a graduate student, postdoctoral researcher, junior faculty member (or at a comparable stage of career in industry), APECS wants to hear from you!

Please dedicate a few minutes to completing the survey:

The survey is anonymous, and no answers can be linked back to you.
Please answer as honestly as you can. Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey!
