Graduate, Post-Doc & Early Career Researcher Training Workshop

Since 2014, this one week program of workforce development introduces the cohort of early-career researchers to the goals, structure, and unqiue research challenges of the South Central CASC. As part of the program, participants engage in a series of instructional presentations that cover climate science and impacts, Indigenous knowledge, co-production of actionable science, and science communication. Additionally, participants engage in small group activities that facilitate interdisciplinary research, and field trips showcasing how scientific results are used in the decision-making process.

Next Training Workshop: the 2020 session was postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19.

The South Central CASC will continue to offer free, online short courses on climate related topics, open to anyone world-wide. The following courses are what we have planned for Fall 2020. Check back later for the Spring courses.
