InterRidge Info #03/2017 (22nd May 2017)

1) [IR Cruise Bursaries] InterRidge supports Cruise Bursaries to help early career ridge-crest scientists to participate in mid-ocean ridge research cruises. Bursaries, up to 2000 US$ each, are awarded for travel and subsistence costs required to join the cruise. We invite graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to apply. Applicants should have a clear role on the research cruise and not be part of the original research team. Preference will be given to applicants from InterRidge member countries and from countries other than those of the cruise leader.
For more details and how to apply, see the
Cruise Bursaries section on IR website.
2) [Spare Berths]
Emily Klein (Duke) and Hans Schouten (WHOI), Chief Scientists of the Cocos-Nazca Rift Cruise, are offering 2 to 5 berths to early-career scientists. This ~30-day NSF-funded cruise to the eastern Pacific Ocean is scheduled to depart Manzanillo, Mexico on 1st May 2018, returning to San Diego, USA (subject to change) onboard RV Roger Revelle.
Multibeam bathymetry, magnetic, and gravity data will be collected at western end of the rift, east of triple junction between 102° and 99° W, and ~60 rock dredges will be performed along segments S2-S8.
For more details on the cruise, contact Ross Parnell-Turner at
rparnellturner@whoi.edu.
Deadline for application (to be sent by e-mail) is 1st December 2017.
This offer is eligible to the InterRidge Cruise Bursaries.
3) [
Cruise & Spare Berths Information] InterRidge is inviting chief scientists of scheduled research cruises with spare berths to contact the InterRidge Office and notify the berth availability, aims of the cruise and contact details. We will advertise them in IR Info and in the spare berth section of our website. Even if no berth is available, please share your cruise info with InterRidge.

InterRidge Info #02/2017 (9th May 2017)

1) [IR Fellowships] Call for proposals InterRidge Student and Postdoctoral Fellowship Program 2017
The InterRidge Office is pleased to announce the launch of the 2017 Student and Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. As part of InterRidge’s mission to promote international, collaborative, and interdisciplinary studies of oceanic spreading centers, we invite proposals for InterRidge Student and Postdoctoral Fellowships of up to 5000 US$ each. These Fellowships are designed to encourage international collaboration on any aspect of ridge-crest science by graduate students or postdoctoral researchers, fostering long-standing partnerships for their future careers. The Fellowships can be used for any field of ridge-crest research. These awards may be used, for instance, for cruise participation or aboratory work by adding an international dimension to the Fellow’s research.
In 2017 we may offer up to 6 IR Fellowships including 3 joint IR-ISA Endowment Fund Fellowships. Fellowships funded by the International Seabed Authority (ISA) Endowment Fund are open either to graduate students or postdocs from developing countries, or to young scientists from any other country if the application demonstrates that it will benefit ridge-related science in developing countries.
All application materials are to be submitted electronically to the InterRidge Coordinator at interridge@ipgp.fr by 6 th June, 2017
More details on IR Student Fellowships.
2) [Cruise Information]
The InterRidge Office offers a virtual platform (IR Info, website and IR News) to promote the exchange of information, technologies and facilities among international research groups. You are invited to provide any details on recent or upcoming cruises to the IR Coordinator following this framework. Thanks for sharing info with the InterRidge community!
3) [Info] InterRidge Student & Post-doc Travel Awards to CBE6
To facilitate international exchange and promote new collaborations by increasing the participation of early career scientists at symposia, InterRidge is awarding Student and Postdoc Travel Awards. Ten 500 US$ grants will be offered to motivated students and postdocs to join the 6th International Symposium on Chemosynthesis-Based Ecosystems (CBE6) in Woods Hole (USA). More details on the CBE6 Symposium website.

InterRidge Info #01/2017 (24th April 2017)

1) [IR] Call for proposals of new InterRidge Working Groups
InterRidge plays a major role in triggering ridge-related science through its Working Groups (WG). Such WGs are appointed for a limited time on specific ridge-related scientific topics. The InterRidge Office is pleased to announce a call for proposals of new InterRidge Working Groups.
The InterRidge WGs play an essential role in promoting, facilitating, and coordinating new researches that focus on a theme of emerging scientific promise or are conducted in a unique geographic setting along global ridge-crests. Such researches should significantly benefit from the InterRidge coordination. A typical WG is coordinated by two co-chairs and gathers about ten active members reflecting the national and disciplinary diversity of InterRidge. The WGs work closely with the InterRidge Steering Committee and the InterRidge Office. They convene group meetings and community-wide workshops, promote and coordinate new cruises, experiments, and related work.
Proposals should be no more than two page-long and describe the WG objectives, importance and timeliness to ridge-related science, available and required means, and expected achievements. The new WGs should substantially differ in objective from the existing or former WGs (see the InterRidge website). Each proposal should have at least four proponents from at least three InterRidge member countries. Cross-disciplinary proposals will be given special attention. Successful proposals will receive support from the InterRidge Office and funding for one workshop.
This invitation is open to the whole international community. All proposals will be reviewed and the new WGs will be appointed by the InterRidge Steering Committee at its next meeting in Summer 2017.
Proposals should be sent by e-mail to the InterRidge Office by Friday, 2nd June 2017.
2) [Jobs]
Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) Postdoctoral Fellow Programme – 4-5 postdoctoral fellow positions are available. More information in Jobs section on the InterRidge website.
3) [News] The deep sea lab at Ifremer (Brest, France) developed a citizen science project 'Deep sea spy' to help annotate the thousands of images recorded in hydrothermal vents using the deep-sea observatories EMSO-Azores and Ocean Networks Canada.Would you like to become a deep sea spy? More details in News section on the InterRidge website.
4) [Office] The InterRidge Office invites you to send all the relevant information you would like to disseminate within the community, via InterRidge Info or on the InterRidge Website, to the InterRidge Coordinator.
