2012 InterRidge/ISA Student and Postdoctoral Fellowships

The InterRidge Office is pleased to announce the launch of the 2012 Student and Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme. 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.

InterRidge awarded $45,000 by ISA for Fellowships

InterRidge has been successful in its bid for $45,000 from the ISA Endowment Fund. This will support 3 fellowships annually between 2012-14, for early career scientists from developing countries. InterRidge welcomes this support and looks forward to working in close association with ISA to encourage young scientists in their careers in marine research. For details of the 2012 InterRidge Fellowship Programme, go to: http://www.interridge.org/fellowship/2012

SCOR Visiting Scholars programme

The idea of this program is to regularly send ocean scientists interested in short-term visits to developing countries. The program is a partnership, with the host institution providing local accommodation and SCOR finding resources to pay for airfares and other local expenses, as necessary. The participating scientists donate their time.

Introduction

In its second decade plan, IR pledged its commitment to education, outreach, and capacity building. By investing the time, energy and resources necessary to build a successful E&O program, InterRidge will ensure that its message of responsible exploration and discovery of the world's deep ocean is heard by students, the future stewards of the environment worldwide; policy-makers; and other members of the general public.

Announcement for the ClimEco4 summer school

The focus will be Delineating the issues of climate change and impacts to marine ecosystems: Bridging the gap between research, assessment, policy and management.

 

If you are a student or early-career researcher interested in the impact of global change on marine ecosystems and the human populations that depend on them, then this is the summer school for you!

ClimEco4 will provide the opportunity to learn about:

  • Climate pressures on marine systems from a bio-physical and human perspective
  • Modelling complex systems
  • Data access and analysis Indicators - how they can be used to evaluate marine ecosystems, how to construct them (for process/observation scientists), how to use them (modellers from natural and social sciences), and how to  combine them for policy and decision-making.

Daily hands on sessions will allow you to work with databases (bring your own if you have one), indicators and models, applying the concepts covered in the lectures.

Additional information can be found on the summer school website, including how to apply (before 15 March 2014) – go to: http://www.imber.info/index.php/Early-Career/IMBER-Summer-Schools/ClimEco4-August-2014-Shanghai-China
