Subject: Career-Path Opportunity for Grad Students

The STUDENT CONFERENCE ON CONSERVATION SCIENCE-New York (SCCS-NY) is designed for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and early-career professionals pursuing or considering the field of conservation science. (Undergraduate students conducting thesis-level research may also apply.) The conference offers numerous opportunities to present your work before and interact with senior-level conservation professionals in science, policy, academia, and management at one of the world’s preeminent scientific and cultural institutions. Whatever your focus—biology, sociology, medicine, economics, architecture, the law—if it has a relevance for conservation, we want to hear your perspective!

The American Museum of Natural History’s Center for Biodiversity and Conservation invites you to participate in the third annual SCCS-NY, to be held in New York City on October 10-12, 2012. Collaborating institutions include Cambridge University, Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and Princeton University.

DEADLINE: Monday, April 2, is the Abstract Submission deadline for those wishing to present their work as a Talk, Speed Talk, or Poster. Non-presenters may apply through the summer to attend (note that seating is limited).

The $100 USD registration fee includes admission to three full days of presentations, workshops, poster session and reception, resource fair, special events, daily lunches, morning and afternoon refreshments, access to American Museum of Natural History exhibitions, etc. At this time, we do not have funds to assist participants with travel or registration costs.
