The Early Career Scientist award

The IGS Early Career Scientist Award is given in recognition of significant scientific and/or community contributions to Glaciology by an Early Career Scientist.

In 2021, the Council of the Society decided establish an award to acknowledge outstanding contribution of Early Career Scientists, ECSs, through the creation of an award to recognise their scientific contributions to glaciology, and/or contributions to the glaciological community.

The IGS ECS Award is given annually to an early career scientist who has made significant scientific contributions to glaciology, defined as any snow and/or ice study, and/or contributions to the glaciological community.

Scientific contributions will be assessed on the basis of the depth, breadth and impact of the research contribution from a body of scientific output. Community contributions will be assessed on the basis of the nominee’s service to glaciology and the International Glaciological Society, including outreach activities and promotion of IGS core values.

The nominee may be part of a collaborative group or team, but must be a major contributor to the work of the group and must be the lead author or organizer of at least one of the assessed outputs. All IGS award nominees are expected to exhibit high moral and ethical standards within the glaciological and wider communities.

Nominations for the IGS ECS Award will be called for annually. One, or in exceptional cases not more than two, awards may be given following each call for nominations.
