Take Our Early Career Scientists Survey

Are you an early career scientist interested in using your expertise to make a difference? Do you want to be a part of efforts to build a healthy, safe, and sustainable future? The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) is the leading science-based nonprofit doing just that—and we need your input and involvement

UCS combines independent scientific research and citizen action to develop innovative, practical solutions and to secure responsible changes in government policy, corporate practices, and consumer choices. And, you, as an early career scientist can play a critical role—but first, we need to know how to best include you in our efforts.

Please take a few moments to fill out the brief survey below so we can best understand your needs and interests as you advance in your career. The responses you provide will not be shared with any third parties and will be used strictly to help UCS better serve early career scientists.

We appreciate your support and thank you for helping to build a healthy, safe, and sustainable future.
