Recruit Forum News for and from the young researchers in the Nansen Legacy

The group is growing!

The Nansen Legacy has funding for about 50 recruitment positions (PhD and PD), of which 30 are now employed. In addition, the project funds young researchers at non-educational institutions like MET, and is lucky enough to have a growing number of affiliated PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. All in all, the Nansen Legacy Recruit Forum now embraces 38 young scientists, with many more to come in the months ahead!

Recruit Forum 2019

The Nansen Legacy Recruit Forum will be held just before the projects' annual meeting in Oslo, October 27-29. The Nansen Legacy Recruit Forum is a two day event, during which the Nansen Legacy young scientists meet and discuss topics of relevance to their work. The Recruit Forum is also a social meeting arena in order to form a cross-institutional and cross-disciplinary network of young Arctic scientists in Norway.

All Nansen Legacy recruits are asked to register as soon as possible for the Recruit Forum here.

Webinar series on transferable skills

Multiple forms of outreach and presentation techniques have evolved, and young researchers meet increasing expectations to perform also here. The Nansen Legacy is therefore organizing a webinar series on different transferable skills, with the first two webinars focusing on Instagram and Elevator pitch presentations. For autumn, webinars on Pecha Kucha and Assertion-Evidence presentations and poster design are planned.
