Effective climate change solutions depend on a comprehensive understanding that draws from many disciplines. Since 2003, DISsertations initiative for the advancement of Climate Change ReSearch (DISCCRS) has hosted symposia for early-career researchers to catalyze interdisciplinary communication, teamwork, and international collaboration, while laying the foundation for dynamic collegial networks that are better prepared to understand and respond to the myriad challenges posed by climate change. Participants will share their research: engage in discussions with peers, mentors, and funding agency representatives: and participate in communication and team training. Thirty early-career scholars will be selected with the expectation that they will become leaders in their chosen fields.

Eligibility: Ph.D. requirements completed between April 1, 2008 and February 28, 2011 in any natural or social science field relevant to the study of climate change, its impacts, or its societal implications.
