UCS Early Career Scientists Initiative

 The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) is bringing emerging leaders in the scientific community together to advocate for effective solutions to our most pressing environmental, health, and security issues. 

By joining the UCS Science Network, you will become part of a network of 17,000 scientists, engineers and health professionals across the country. In addition to being part of the greater UCS team, you'll be the first to know about the latest opportunities, events, reports, and other great resources UCS provides to help advance experts' early careers.
How to Get Involved:
Take our Early Career Scientist Survey to help us determine how best to include you in our efforts. The survey takes a few moments to fill out and will help us understand your needs and interests as you advance in your career.
Sign-up for the UCS Science Network to receive timely action alerts and invitations to online and in-person events specifically designed for scientists like you—and be among the first to know about new UCS reports and analyses.
Become a Student Member of UCS at a special discounted rate. Our student members will be given special opportunities to learn and engage with UCS scientists on a variety of issues. They will also receive UCS publications such as Catalyst and Earthwise, and discounts on publications such as A Scientist's Guide to Talking With the Media, a book empowering researchers in a variety of fields to spread their message on their own terms.
