Geo.X Early Career Scientists (ECS) Section

The newly established Geo.X Early Career Scientists (ECS) Section is composed of doctoral candidates and postdocs working in the field of Earth sciences and related research disciplines within the Geo.X network. The purpose of the ECS Section is to provide a platform:

  • to create networking opportunities for junior geoscientists in Berlin and Potsdam,
  • to foster the exchange between young scientists across all Geo.X partner institutions,
  • to discuss current issues of geoscientific research and related fields,
  • to provide an opportunity to present and discuss their projects,
  • to distribute interesting and informative content for members of the section.

We focus on providing a networking platform enabling the communication between young scientists working at different universities and research institutions of the Geo.X network. To support networking activities and foster interinstitutional exchange self-organized workshops, conferences and social events will be held in the future at varying locations in Berlin and Potsdam. During this meeting members shall be encouraged to present their research projects and foremost shall be given an opportunity of benefitting from a cooperative exchange of ideas. The meetings will provide a platform for open discussions on current developments in geoscientific research and a wide range of topics that are of particular interest for early-stage researchers.
