Please join us for a new research seminar initiative, Pal(a)eo PERCS!
Pal(a)eo PERCS (Paleo EaRly Career Seminars) is a weekly seminar series that promotes and features work by Early Career Researchers who are working in the broad field of ?Pal(a)eo? sciences (e.g., -ntology, -ecology, -oceanography, -climate, etc). A PERCS seminar takes place on Zoom, and consists of a live streamed short (~30 min) seminar followed by a Q&A session and an opportunity for small group discussion and networking with other attendees using break-out rooms. Recordings of some seminars may be available for a limited period to PaleoTalks participants unable to attend live seminars. While speakers are limited to ECRs, all are welcome to attend.
Talks will be (mostly) weekly on Tuesdays at 8am Pacific / 11am Eastern / 4pm UK / 5pm Central Europe time. The first seminar will be Tuesday June 23rd. A zoom link will be emailed to participants via the PaleoPERCS email list prior to the talk.
PERCS is intended as a venue to share research, strengthen our global community, and facilitate collaboration between the Paleo sciences.. All paleo- researchers and fans are enthusiastically welcome.
Pal(a)eo PERCS is committed to producing an accessible virtual seminar series. Some of our efforts include live-captioning of talks using auto-captions, seminar recordings available to attendees for later viewing, and encouraging our speakers to use colorblind-friendly graphics. However, we recognize that these efforts are not exhaustive, and that accessibility is a continual work in progress. We are a grassroots, international, institution-independent coalition of early career researchers with no budget (currently), working with the tools we can. However, we would like to do right by our community members. If there is an accommodation that would improve your ability to participate in this seminar series, please reach out to us at [email protected] and we will work with you. Thank you!
