On 15 September we brought you an online workshop (the lineup can be seen below) by our very own Polar Science Experts to help you boost you research career with tips and tricks and ‘inside information’ from these researchers who started where we as ECRs are and made it to the top. The presentation of the day can be accessed below as well. In celebration of International September Polar Week we also released a travel guide for newbee conference-goers and expeditioners.
