Second ICES-PICES Conference for Early Career Scientists

To encourage the participation of early career scientists in international scientific investigations and to promote their involvement in the management of the marine environment, the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) and the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES) invited a group of early career marine scientists to form the Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) to plan and organize an international conference for their peers on a marine topic of their own choosing. The resulting conference will be held on Majorca Island, Spain from 24 to 27 April 2012.

UNOLS Chief Scientist Training Cruises

The UNOLS Chief Scientist Training Cruises will instruct early career marine scientists, including PhD students, on how to effectively plan for, acquire, utilize and report on time at sea for multi-disciplinary research and education. A training cruise will take place from July 6-15, 2011 from Newport OR and be repeated for a second science party September 16-25, 2011. The cruise plan will be dictated by the science requirements of the participants. Participant travel costs are provided along with small stipends for research supplies.
