@Polar_Research (APECS) and @APECSOceania is about supporting postgrads, undergrads and those new to the workforce. #antsci13
What is leadership? @APECSOceania's Sarah Ugalde presenting on what leadership can mean to early career scientists. #antsci13

Interested in becoming a member of @APECSOceania or becoming a mentor? Join up @ …. #antsci13 #antarctic #science
Comforted to know that our polar early career scientists are democratic-type leaders #leadership #antsci13
Your career is more than just good science. Lack of leadership training during uni and early career phase highlighted #antarctica #antsci13
Opportunities are available for those early-career/student scientists. e.g. Vice-Chancellor's Leadership Award & Tall Poppy Awards #antsci13
Polar early career scientists & students need to be proactive in seeking out opportunities for leadership skill development #antsci13
@APECSOceania would like to also thank @IMAS_UTAS and the @TasPostgrads for their support in running this #Antsci13 workshop!”
Polar survival challenge activity: how will our early career scientists tackle a survival scenario? #antsci13

Early career leadership skills: create a clear vision; build networks; know strengths & weaknesses; identify morals; education #antsci13
Our panelists are arriving - looking forward to a vibrant discussion on leadership in polar science. #antsci13 #leadership #antarctica
We're off! Panel discussion has begun. Fabulous discussion ensuing between experienced scientists and early career scientists. #antsci13
Leadership: hard work, emotional intelligence, opportunity, mobility and enthusiasm are the cornerstones. #antsci13
The differences in the way men and women have approached their careers and their science, are changing. #antsci13
Marine and antarctic science environment is proving to be a supportive environment for women. #antsci13
Our panellists: wonderful and diverse discussion on career progression and experience. APECS thanks you! #antsci13"

Gaining experience: from a hiring perspective, volunteering and demonstrating keen-ness goes a long way. #antsci13
You will not get a job on your scientific qualifications alone, but on that extra thing you give to employer #earlycareerscience #antsci13
Do you need a PhD to get somewhere in the science community? Not necessarily. Interesting response from panellists. #antsci13
Quiet achiever in a large institution is often the most sought after. #earlycareerscience #antsci13
Publish or perish for career progression? #earlycareerscientists #antsci13
