Aquatic Science Early Career Award for 2017 CCFFR/SCL Meeting

Application Deadline: October 24, 2016

In 2016 the CCFFR Board identified the need to promote the participation of early career aquatic scientists at the annual meeting.  Following on the success of the Clemens-Rigler travel award in promoting graduate student participation, the new Early Career Award will provide travel support to aquatic scientists who have completed a graduate degree at a Canadian university and are beginning their careers

Who is eligible?

Individuals who are pursuing a career in aquatic sciences and presenting their research (poster or oral presentation) at the CCFFR/SCL annual meeting and are currently:

  • Post-doctoral fellows or,
  • Graduates of a Canadian university who received an MSc or PhD within the past 2 years and are currently not employed in the aquatic sciences.

How much can one expect to get?

The Early Career award was established in 2016 and has no precedent for funding.  Award amounts will be based on available funds to support the award and are anticipated to be approximately $500 (depending on financial needs).

When and how results will be made public?

The committee will meet a week or two after the application deadline, and applicants will be notified by email.

We are happy to announce the call for abstracts and registration for the CCFFR-SCL 2017 meeting in beautiful Montreal. This year there are 14 proposed sessions as well as general sessions, meaning there'll be lots of great Canadian Aquatic Sciences going on over just a few days this coming January.

Abstract submission deadline and early registration is Oct. 17th.

Links for abstract submissions and registration can be found on our webpage which has links directly to the CCFFR website: http://www1.uwindsor.ca/glier/ccffr/ccffrccrp-2017

Check out the website for additional details on deadlines, hotel bookings, planned activities, and the scientific programme.

We welcome all to come to Montreal and share their latest findings in fisheries and aquatic sciences at the 2017 CCFFR-SCL meeting January 5-8, 2017!

Great meeting in Ottawa!

Another year, another fantastic meeting with CCFFR in Ottawa!

The meeting kicked off early for some with a workshop on the IISD-Experimental Lakes Area, discussing progress in the first year as an independent entity, as well as upcoming field courses and proposed experiments.

"The Smoker", which is the annual mixer that officially kicks off the meeting, was fantastic. Lots of great conversation as friends and colleagues come together and meet again.

This year had a strong set of presentations, and started off in fine form with plenary lectures by Martin Krkhosek (Stevenson Lecturer, U of T), Daniel Schindler (Rigler Awardee, University of Washington), our very own Alison Derry (UQAM), Anne Phelps (DFO) and a delightfully insightful and provocative talk by Jake Rice (DFO senior scientist). The regular sessions then went into full swing, with SCL-led sessions on Multiple Stressors, Dynamics of Aquatic Nutrients and Algal Blooms, and the Experimental Lakes Area. In all, 213 contributed talks and 72 posters were presented over three days.

Last, the organizing committee held a "student success workshop" with panel discussions on a range of topics, from getting published, science communication and outreach, scoring that job or next grad position, and working at the interface of science and policy. Judging by the reviews on twitter, this was one of the most talked about sessions at the conference, and was very well received.

Finally, a big THANK YOU to the Local Organizing Committee this year (John Lark, Steve Cooke), and the army of volunteers who made it all happen, as well as the generous sponsors and donors (listed in the program), bot those who exhibited and those who supported the conference in so many other ways.

Looking forward to next year in St. John's! Until then...
