As many of you know, CliC has teamed up with the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists to share interesting information about the Cryosphere through FrostBytes – ‘Soundbytes of Cool Research’. These 30-60 second audio or video recordings are designed to help researchers easily share their latest findings to a broad audience. All the FrostBytes are featured on the CliC iTunes channel.
We are looking a volunteer to help take on the editing and coordination of our FrostBytes. Each FrostBytes takes less than an hour to edit, sometimes much less, and we generally produce 4-5 a month… While the position is not paid, we have been able to offer travel funding to a CliC-related meeting as our way of saying thank you for your efforts. Speaking of thank you’s… We thank the lovely Lorna Little, our past editor, for her great service and with her will on her new endeavours. She has graciously agreed to help train the new editor and is available to ask questions if you are interested in learning more about the position.
If you had fun making your own FrostByte or enjoy working with multimedia and interacting with people while learning more about science, please get in touch with Gwen at the CliC office. Ideally, we would like this role filled before August.
