POGO: Taking the Pulse of the Global Ocean
For more than a decade, the Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans, POGO, has served as a forum for leaders of major oceanographic institutions around the world to promote global oceanography, particularly the implementation of international and integrated global ocean observing systems. POGO is an international network of collaborators who foster partnerships that advance efficiency and effectiveness in studying and monitoring the world’s oceans on a global scale. Through its efforts, POGO has promoted observations underpinning ocean and climate science, interpreted scientific results for decision makers, provided training and technology transfer to emerging economies, and built awareness of the many challenges still ahead.

Five Bigelow Laboratory scientists at sea investigating how phytoplankton help balance the planet
On Wednesday September 17, five scientists from the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences in East Boothbay will board the R/V New Horizon, where they will spend the next three weeks working round the clock to learn how phytoplankton affect major nutrient cycles in the ocean. Led by Senior Research Scientist Mike Lomas, the team will leave Honolulu and head toward the Equator to gain a better understanding of the complex relationships between ocean chemistry and phytoplankton biology in this dynamic ocean region. They will return to Honolulu on October 8 and be back in Maine shortly thereafter.
Postdoc positions in Oceanography, Millennium Institute of Oceanography, University of Concepcion, Chile
At least two full-time postdoctoral positions are available immediately at the Millennium Institute of Oceanography (IMO) to undertake innovative research and to develop questions in any of these research lines and in association with two, or more, of IMO’s Associate Researchers. Candidates will have to demonstrate experience and motivation to do research in any of them, using observational, experimental and/or modelling approaches. Independent of the area of preference, candidates will be expected to collaborate from his/her field in any of the other areas.

Marine evolution under climate change - CeMEB Advanced Course for PhD students and postdocs, 30 Nov - 7 Dec 2014
The Linnaeus Centre for Marine Evolutionary (CeMEB) invite PhD students and postdocs from all over the world to gather for one week in a stimulating environment to discuss how climate change (including global warming, ocean acidification, hypoxia) affects evolutionary rules that shape ocean ecosystem.
What determines species-sensitivity to future environmental stressors and how does it relates to species recent evolutionary history? What life-history strategies will be selected in future ocean? How can we assess a species adaptation potential? What is the role of phenotypic plasticity in species resilience? What will be evolutionary rules in future oceans? What is the role of ecological interactions in future ecosystem changes?
