Deadline: 17 October 2018

The Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO) is pleased to announce that in partnership with Plymouth Marine Laboratory, it is offering a POGO-PML Visiting Fellowship for training on-board an Antarctic Deep Water Rates of Export (ANDREX) Cruise.

The selected candidate will have the opportunity to visit Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) for one month prior to the start of the cruise to participate in cruise preparation and planning; and to go on the cruise (14th February to 10th April 2019) to help make biogeochemical observations (carbonate and oxygen chemistry).

One fellowship is being offered and the successful candidate will focus on Carbonate and Oxygen chemistry, under the supervision of Dr Vassilis Kitidis and Mr Ian Brown of PML. This fellowship would suit a candidate with an environmental science or analytical interest/background. The applicant needs to contact the prospective supervisors with a short CV and a statement of interest outlining their current research and what they hope to gain from the training no later than 10 October 2018, to allow sufficient time for the supervisor to consider the application before the submission deadline and issue an acceptance letter.

For full details on the fellowship, and to submit an application, please visit http://www.oceantrainingpartnership.org/ANDREXII 

The deadline for applications for the 2019 fellowship is Wednesday 17 October 2018. All applicants will be informed of the decision within one month of the deadline.
