The Dissertation Initiative for the advancement of Climate-Change ReSearch (DISCCRS, pronounced “discourse”) is designed to prepare recent Ph.D. graduates for interdisciplinary careers focusing on climate change and its impacts. DISCCRS is funded by NSF and NASA.
DISCCRS includes web-based resources and annual symposia where a select group of recent doctoral graduates can expand their scientific and professional outlook and forge lasting collegial relationships. Graduates from Ph.D. programs throughout the world and spanning the full spectrum of natural- and social-science disciplines related to climate change/impacts are eligible to apply. A committee will select thirty-six participants based on the submitted applications.
