News from the EAG
Following elections in October, EAG is pleased to announce that Sigurður Reynir Gíslason (University of Iceland), Andreas Pack (University of Göttingen) and Dominik Weiss (Imperial College London) were elected and will join the council in 2015. Furthermore the council has also elected Antje Boetius as a new Goldschmidt Officer and Stefanie Lutz as the first Early Career Councillor. We would like to wish all our new councillors a very warm welcome!
To promote Early Career Scientists, EAG creates the Early Career Science Ambassador Program. Early Career Scientists based in Europe, in the final stages of their PhD or within 6 years post PhD, wishing to attend conferences outside of Europe will have 50% of their expenses covered by EAG, up to 2000 Euros, and be viewed as EAG Ambassadors while attending the event. Find out more.
Dr. Rachael James (University of Southampton) is the EAG Distinguished Lecturer 2014 and after a first lecture in Prague earlier this month, she will be in Romania and Bulgaria from 24 November giving lectures on ocean chemistry and climate change. These are public lectures, so staff, students and visitors are welcome to attend; see tour and lecture details.
If your institution is located in Central or Eastern Europe and you would like to invite next year’s lecturer, please contact our office.
As EAG aims to support students training in geochemistry, on years when the Goldschmidt conference is not in Europe (i.e. on even years), EAG will sponsor 20 students up to 200 Euros per student, to attend short courses, summer schools, workshops or conferences located in Europe and related to geochemistry.
