IGAC welcomes nominations and self-nominations to its Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) from the international community. Serving on the IGAC SSC is ideal for well-established mid to senior career scientists. IGAC is currently accepting nominations for the 2023 SSC. For 2023, nominations for scientists working in Europe (particularly Eastern Europe) are strongly encouraged. Additionally, we are seeking SSC members that are interested in advancing IGAC’s new mission goal of engaging society. In addition to scientists, this could also include nominees from the social sciences or health communities who are engaged with the atmospheric chemistry community to address the societal impact of emissions and chemistry.
Nominations will be accepted until 30 May 2022. For information on serving on the IGAC SSC, please see The Expectations and Role of IGAC SSC Members.
IGAC accepts both nominations and self-nominations. Please see below the requirements for each type of nomination. Requirements to nominate someone to the IGAC SSC:
Upload the nominees CV and publication list (if not part of the CV).
Upload a statement from the nominee on "Why do you want to serve on the IGAC SSC and what will you bring to IGAC?" The statement should be ~300 words or less.
Recently, IGAC has changed its mission statement to include 'engaging with society' as one of IGAC’s four main goals (in addition to advancing knowledge, fostering community, and building capacity). Upload a short (200 words or less) statement from the nominee on how they envision IGAC engaging with society
Upload you CV and publication list (if not part of the CV).
Upload a letter of support from someone in the international scientific community.
Provide a statement on "Why do you want to serve on the IGAC SSC and what will you bring to IGAC?". The statement should be ~300 words or less.

The atmosphere is the integrator of the Earth system. Human emissions of pollutants and long-lived greenhouse gases into the atmosphere have caused dramatic transformations of the planet, altering air quality, climate and nutrient flows in every ecosystem. Understanding the global atmosphere requires an international network of scientists providing intellectual leadership in areas of atmospheric chemistry that need to be addressed, promoted, and accomplished through research across disciplines and geographical boundaries. Acknowledgement of this need led to the formation of the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC) Project in 1990. IGAC’s mission is to facilitate atmospheric chemistry research towards a sustainable world. This is achieved through IGAC’s four focal activities: advancing knowledge, fostering community, building capacity, and engaging society.
IGAC’s priorities and activities are determined and guided by an international volunteer Scientific Steering Committee (SSC). Serving on the IGAC SSC is a unique and enjoyable opportunity to contribute to the international atmospheric chemistry community.
