The Bristol Glaciology Centre, University of Bristol, will be hosting the following two UK meetings in September:
1. The International Glaciological Society British Branch Meeting, 8-9 September 2014.

Further details of these meetings will follow in due course. For now, if you are interested in attending, please add these dates to your diaries.
NERC has changed the dates for the ‘December’ standard grant round. The dates have been moved forward to January and the January 2014 closing date will be 21 January at 16:00 GMT. The 2014 call will open and proposals can be submitted on Je-S from 1 September 2013. There are two calls in this round: Standard Grant JAN14 and Standard Grant - NI JAN14 (for a New Investigator). This is an open competition for curiosity-motivated basic, strategic or applied research. For more information, please see the NERC website.
Please also note that the July 2014 standard grant deadline has also been moved to the 22nd of July.
Preliminary requests for Antarctic logistic support must be received no later than 3 months prior to submission deadline of the intended funding opportunity.
In 2012, NERC Council decided to introduce a new NERC Independent Research Fellowship scheme (IRF) that will replace the previous schemes (Postdoctoral Fellowships and Advanced Fellowships). These five-year awards will 'support outstanding environmental scientists and enable them to develop their research, start to build a research group and become internationally recognised'. Further information about the Independent Research Fellowship, including deadlines and application processes can be found at http://www.nerc.ac.uk/funding/available/fellowships/
The latest (April 2013) edition of the NERC Research Grants and Fellowships Handbook (Grants awarded on Full Economic Cost basis) is now available.
