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.

Two Tenure Track positions in Marine Science at UCSB
Assistant Professor Marine Physiology- University of California, Santa Barbara
RECRUITMENT PERIOD Open Jul 18, 2014 through Sep 15, 2014
DESCRIPTION The Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology (EEMB; www.eemb.ucsb.edu) at the University of California, Santa Barbara invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in Marine Physiology at the rank of Assistant Professor. We are searching for a highly creative and interactive scholar who fits into our multidisciplinary department. The area and system of study is open, although we are most interested in candidates who would examine the physiological mechanisms underlying organism-environment interactions, or whose work would link to global change in marine ecosystems. This position requires a PhD at the time of appointment and will be filled by a physiologist who studies metazoans or macrophytes, and we encourage candidates who work in all marine systems including the deep-sea, temperate and tropical reefs and open as well as coastal oceans. We encourage applications from candidates who adopt an integrative, mechanistic approach and have a strong field component in their research.
Postdoctoral Position in Biogeochemical Modelling at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada
The Marine Environmental Modelling Group (MEMG, http://memg.ocean.dal.ca/) at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada, has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral position in the general area of biogeochemical modelling.
A Ph.D. in Oceanic, Atmospheric or Environmental Science, prior modelling experience and programming skills are prerequisites. Familiarity with ROMS, FORTRAN and Matlab would be beneficial.
Simons Early Career Investigator in Marine Microbial Ecology and Evolution Awards (RFA)
The Simons Foundation is now accepting applications for its Simons Early Career Investigator in Marine Microbial Ecology and Evolution Awards. The deadline for receipt of letters of intent (LOI) is October 15, 2014, 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
The purpose of these awards is to launch the careers of outstanding investigators who use quantitative approaches to advance our understanding of marine microbial ecology and evolution. Investigators will focus directly on marine microbes or on fundamental problems that are highly relevant to understanding marine microbial ecosystems. Applicants may currently be working in a related field, but must submit an innovative proposal for research that will advance the understanding of marine microbial ecology or evolution.
Assistant, Associate and Senior Scientist Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry
The Department of Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry (MC&G) at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (www.whoi.edu/main/mcg) invites exceptional candidates to apply for one or more tenure-track and tenured scientific-staff positions (Assistant, Associate and Senior Scientist) to complement and expand existing programs on the chemistry of the ocean and its interactions with the Earth as a whole.
