2017 Call for SCOR Working Group Proposals

The SCOR Secretariat will accept proposals for new working groups from now until 15 April 2017. The guidelines, a template, and word limits are available at http://www.scor-int.org/SCOR_WGs_Proposal_Instructions.htm, including a PowerPoint presentation explaining the proposal process.

Each proposal will be evaluated by national SCOR committees in terms of scientific merit and quality, timeliness, and achievability of the proposed terms of reference. National SCOR committees are an important aspect of SCOR’s operation and play a key role in reviewing working group proposals and in seeking new funds to support working group activities. In addition, the review of working group proposals is open worldwide to partner organizations and individuals who would like to provide comments.

Please contact Ed Urban (ed.urban@scor-int.org) if you have any questions about the process for working group proposals.

NF-POGO Centre of Excellence at the Alfred Wegener Institute - Call for applications for training

Applications are now being accepted for Year 5 of the Nippon Foundation-POGO Centre of Excellence (NF-POGO CofE) at the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI). The training will run from October 2017 to August 2018.

The NF-POGO CofE has provided world class education and training courses in the field of observational oceanography since 2008. Since 2013, the NF-POGO CofE has been hosted by the Alfred Wegener Institute, Germany's foremost polar and marine research institution.

Venue and Background

Located in the North Sea, the NF-POGO Centre of Excellence at AWI will be conducted on the offshore island of Helgoland and the UNESCO reserve Waddensea island of Sylt. Helgoland provides opportunities for the study of open-ocean sciences; shelf/basin interactions are topics of study at Sylt.

Course Synopsis

The training will promote excellence in integrated, multidisciplinary oceanography at a global scale. Scholars will receive ten months of training to include one month of formal introductory training, followed by more detailed courses emphasizing core skills (e.g. writing, scientific presentations, statistics and experimental design) and specialised scientific topics such as modelling, remote sensing, ocean-atmosphere interactions. Scholars will also receive training in instrumentation, sample collection and analytical protocols. Each scholar will conduct an independent research project during the programme. The scientific staff of AWI can mentor research projects in numerous fields as it is large in number and diverse, with strength in many areas of Observational Oceanography; the scientists on Helgoland and Sylt have unique expertise in biology, ecology, time-series work and coastal processes.

How to apply

The course is open to early-career scientists from developing and developed countries, although preference will be given to those who currently hold a position in a research or academic institution in a developing country and anticipate returning to the country after completion of training. Candidates must have at least a first degree in science. Application details can be found here: www.awi.de/en/nf-pogo-cofe

The deadline for applications is 6 March 2017.
