1.  Opportunity for one early career researcher to sit on the ISMASS Steering Committee for a period of 2-3 years. (Note: the successful candidate is supposed to attend the ISMASS workshop mentioned below).

2. Several travel fellowships for early career researchers to attend the ISMASS Workshop (16 August 2015) on the Marine Ice Sheet and Ice Shelf‐Ocean Model Intercomparison Projects (MISMIP+, ISOMIP+, MISOMIP1) and the subsequent International Glaciology Society (IGS) 2015 Meeting on Ice Sheet Dynamics in Cambridge, UK (16-21 August 2015). More information on the workshop can be found here: http://www.climate-cryosphere.org/activities/groups/ismass/meetings/mismips-cambridge
