The Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans (POGO) and Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) are pleased to announce that the POGO-SCOR Visiting Fellowship programme for 2016 is now open for applications. The deadline for applications is 15 April 2016.
Bigelow Laboratory launches new Centers for Venture Research focused on seafood security and the opening Arctic Ocean
Recognizing the importance of making science more relevant and accessible to meet societal needs, Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences has launched two new Centers for Venture Research, specifically geared to translating basic ocean-related scientific research to inform problem-solving, policy, and public awareness. The first two centers will focus on the opening of the Arctic Ocean and seafood security.
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Fellow to investigate the biogeochemical processes in tidal marsh soils that regulate their ability to produce, transform, and buffer dissolved organic matter (DOM) export to estuaries. The project seeks to transform our ability to predict the influence of tidal wetlands on estuarine biology, biogeochemistry, and ecology. The successful applicant will join an interdisciplinary, multi-institution, NSF-funded research team that includes biogeochemists and modelers.
Applications are now being accepted for the third IOCCG Summer Lecture Series (SLS), dedicated to high-level training in the fundamentals of ocean optics, bio-optics and ocean colour remote sensing. The course will take place in Villefranche-sur-Mer, France from 18 - 30 July 2016 and will consist of lectures by prominent scientists on current critical issues in ocean colour science, along with hands-on tutorials.
