Special Webinar: How to succeed with your project proposal?

Dear all,


This is a special webinar arranged by the Bjerknes Proposal Writing Class, where the invited speakers will share their experience with proposal writing. It’s mostly targeting early career scientists who will submit a proposal in 2023, but we also cordially invite experienced scientists to join the webinar and contribute to the discussion with their experience with successful and unsuccessful proposals. Hope to see many of you there!


Best wishes,


Friederike, Mahaut, Nadine, Catherine and Linling

Supervision course for the Bjerknes Early Career Scientist Forum

A supervision course for the Bjerknes Early Career Scientist Forum in January 2023:


As early career scientists, supervision of Bachelor, Master, and PhD students can become an important part of the job. However, supervision is not typically taught. So, how do you learn to be a great supervisor?

At the Bjerknes Center, early career scientists indicated that this was a high priority area for additional training. The Early Career Scientists Forum has paired up with Dr. Robert Kordts of the UiB program for University Pedagogy to offer a special 2 half-day course focused on how to grow your skills as a supervisor while at the early career stage. The course will be January 23 and 24th, 2023 and will run from 9-12:30.


If you identify as a post-PhD early career scientist* affiliated with the Bjerknes Centre:

*Who is an Early Career Scientist? Inspired by the EGU and AGU ECS definition, the BCCR ECS forum targets practicing scientists who received their PhD within the past recent years. The definition of recent is left to one’s personal opinion to promote inclusivity. For reference, EGU/AGU uses 7 years.
