The EGU Education Committee, which coordinates EGU activities mainly related to secondary (high school) and tertiary (post-secondary) education, invites applications from Early Career Scientists for one EGU Education Fellowship for 2023. The fellow will work to capture, synthesize, and disseminate educational resources and opportunities, particularly to those who teach the Earth, planetary, and space sciences at university level, but also to the wider education community, including primary and secondary teachers.
The ideal applicant must have experience teaching geoscience at the university level and conducting geoscience outreach, along with excellent communication skills and enthusiasm for the creative use of social media channels to disseminate geoscience educational developments, innovations, and opportunities. The applicant will have to attend 2023’s Geosciences Information for Teachers (GIFT) workshops (in person or online if applicable). Some involvement or association with national or international academic or student organisations or societies would be preferred.
Applicant must be an Early Career Scientist and must also have written permission from his/her line manager/employer/supervisor to participate (if applicable). The EGU Education Fellow will receive a financial compensation of 2 500 € and will work collaboratively with the EGU Education Committee.
A CV, a written permission to participate (if applicable), and a one-page application (including teaching experience and expertise, and science communication involvement and achievements) should be sent to the Education Committee Chair, Jean-Luc Berenguer, at email@example.com by 10 February 2023. The successful applicant will be informed by 24 February 2023.
