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.

Nano-Raman Molecular Imaging Lab Technician, Stony Brook, New York, USA
The School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS) of Stony Brook University seeks applicants for the position of Instructional Support Technician. The incumbent will have responsibility for daily management and operation of the newly created nano-RAMAN Molecular Imaging Laboratory, a multi-user laboratory within SoMAS. The position will serve SBU’s research and education programs, providing novel analytical capabilities to faculty and students from SoMAS, the wider campus community and off-campus. Instrumentation is capable of providing high-resolution (<50 nm) 3-D images of a sample’s topography, fluorescence and distribution of chemical functionalities. Instrument is amenable to interrogating single cells, liquids, particles, solid surfaces and gases maintained anywhere from -196 to +600°C. The incumbent will provide analyses as well as train and oversee graduate, undergraduate, faculty and staff in the safe operation of the facility’s instruments as well as in data manipulation.
POST-DOC in Analytical Eletrochemistry in Marine Systems, Toulouse, France
LEGOS is a joint venture between CNRS, IRD, CNES and University Paul Sabatier, one of the components of Observatory Midi-Pyrénées in Toulouse, France. It comprises around 125 people, among which 43 scientists and 28 administrative and technical staff.
This multidisciplinary research unit is involved in the study of the environment centred on earth geodesy and physical and biogeochemical oceanography, using in-situ oceanographic and remotely-sensed data and modelling tools.
2014 POGO-SCOR Fellowships Announcement
The Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans is calling for applications for the 2014 POGO-SCOR Visiting Fellowship scheme. The deadline for applications is 10 January 2014. The scheme is designed to promote training and capacity building leading towards a global observation scheme for the oceans, and is aimed at scientists, technicians, graduate students (PhD) and post-doctoral fellows involved in oceanographic work at centres in developing countries and countries with economies in transition (e.g. Commonwealth of Independent States, Eastern Europe).
Scientific Project Manager Position at PANGAEA, MARUM, University Bremen
PANGAEA data publisher for earth and environmental sciences (www.pangaea.de) is a joint facility of MARUM (www.marum.de) at University Bremen and of the AWI (www.awi.de), Bremerhaven. It is responsible for data integration in several national, European and international research projects.
