WEBSITE – DISCCRS: Preparing Ph.D. Graduates for Climate Change Careers

DISCCRS (pronounced “discourse”) is built on the premise that successful interdisciplinary scholarship begins with a core area of expertise and grows with the development of broader knowledge and through a network of collegial connections across disciplines. The aim of DISCCRS is to foster such interdisciplinary work by connecting new researchers who are striving to create and integrate knowledge across multiple disciplines and to develop creative solutions to problems relating to climate change.

DISCCRS offers:

  • A searchable database of  Ph.D. dissertation abstracts submitted through this website
  • Career-development resources developed through the symposia
  • A weekly newsletter with timely information on climate-change news and jobs (either register your dissertation or simply click here to be added to our mailing list)
  • Annual symposia for selected early career scientists interested in working across traditional disciplinary boundaries. The goal is to  develop international, interdisciplinary collegial networks among scholars likely to become leaders in their chosen fields. Participation at the symposia is limited to 30 early career scholars identified by an interdisciplinary committee of research scientists based on review of submitted applications.
