This month we are advertising another vacancy at the EGU Executive Office in Munich, Germany: EGU Communications Officer. The successful candidate will manage the EGU blogs and social media channels and be the office contact point for early career scientists.

Also this month, we have opened the call for candidates for EGU Union President, General Secretary and Division Presidents: if you'd like to nominate yourself or propose a candidate, you can do so by 15 September.

Finally, if you'd like to apply for financial support from the EGU to organise a meeting, make sure to submit an application by 15 August.
