Upcoming Event: Ice Ice Baby – Let’s talk having kids in polar sciences

Our “Let’s Talk!” seminar series is designed to share experiences, advice and resources, and to provide a casual space for early career scientists to get answers and talk about the things that are on our mind. Every few months we choose a topic and invite experienced panelists to share their story and perspective.

In March we want to talk about Having Kids in Polar Sciences. We will be joined by a diverse group of panelists who will share their experience and considerations of having, not having or not yet having kids in their polar science career.

Some of the topics we want to cover are:

  • Kids and career – timing, contract, supervisor support and other considerations
  • Kids and field work – How can it work and does it have to?
  • Kids and life abroad – moving, language, childcare, …


When? 21st March , 5.30 PM (CET)

What? Panel discussion and networking event over ZOOM

Note: Our “Let’s talk!” seminars cover personal subjects and experiences of our panelists and other participants. We therefore ask everyone to be respectful and will enforce boundaries if need be.

The seminar will be held in English.
