IMBeR is delighted to announce its latest endorsed project: NUTS&BOLTS – Importance of Physico-Chemical Cycling of Nutrients and Carbon in Marine Transitional Zones.
NUTS&BOLTS is a four-year project undertaken by Prof. Peter Croot and colleagues at the National University of Ireland Galway, funded by the Irish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Marine Institute.
NUTS&BOLTS aims to address crucial knowledge gaps regarding the impacts of multiple environmental stressors on nutrient and carbon cycling in Ireland’s marine transitional zones (MTZs). Several novel applications will be used to improve our understanding, both qualitatively and quantitatively, of the physical and chemical processes, and their fluxes, that impact biological activity in Irish coastal marine and transitional waters.

The Integrated Marine Biosphere Research project (IMBeR, www.imber.infoinvites nominations for a position as a member of its Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) for a term beginning on 1 January 2021.

The SSC is responsible for the development, planning and implementation of IMBeR science. The IMBeR science plan (2016-2025) is available at: IMBeR SPIS 2016-2025.

SSC members serve for a period of three years, with the potential of renewing for an additional 3-year term. The IMBeR SSC and sponsors, the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) and Future Earth, will select the new SSC member based on expertise, and contribution to the geographic and gender balance of the SSC. Nominations from Central and South America, which are currently underrepresented, are especially welcome.

More information about the SSC is available at: IMBeR Scientific Steering Committee.

There is one position available on the SSC, and we seek nominations from individuals with the expertise to address aspects of the IMBeR Science Plan and in particular with experience in one of the following:
  • Processes, drivers and stressors underlying changing marine species diversity
  • Sequestration and storage of ‘blue’ carbon in the marine environment
  • Social and cultural anthropology of marine-dependent societies
  • Human interventions to reduce or limit the impacts of climate change on marine life

Nominations should include the following information: Name of the nominee, Affiliation, Contact information, Email, Website, Expertise keywords, Up to ten relevant publications, Nominated by (optional), Short, one-page CV, Brief description (200 words max.) of what/how the nominee would contribute to the IMBeR science plan.

We envisage that applicants who are not selected for the SSC position would automatically have the option to remain involved in IMBeR as a National Contact.

The recently reinvigorated IMBeR National Contacts Network aims to broaden the international reach of IMBeR-related research. National Contacts form a network linking relevant research undertaken in their respective countries to the international IMBeR community. National Contacts are appointed for a 3-year term that can be renewed for a further three years.

Please send nominations to the IMBeR International Project Office-Canada ([email protected]) by Tuesday 15 September 2020.

SCOR Early Career Scientists Online Survey
致所有从事海洋研究的青年科学家:(转自SCOR执行主任Patricia Miloslavich
国际海洋研究委员会(SCOR) 执行委员会(EC)在2018年决定吸纳一名青年科学家作为增选委员。该职位每两年轮换一次,任务是更广泛地接触青年科学家群体,并使他们参与到SCOR的活动和项目中。

To all Early Career Scientists in Oceanic Research,
In 2018, the SCOR Executive Committee (EC) decided to incorporate an Early Career Scientist as one of the two co-opted members. This is a position that rotates in a two-years basis. The mission of this EC member is to reach out the broader early-career community and involve them in SCOR activities and projects.
SCOR has created an online survey aimed at gathering information that will facilitate the establishment of a network of networks, where all the early career marine scientists can be interconnected and together contribute to promote international cooperation in planning and conducting oceanographic research. Through this survey we are trying to pinpoint how SCOR can contribute in supporting the younger scientific community of marine scientists, and find the right channels to reach all the early career scientists associated someway to SCOR.
We would really appreciate if you could dedicate two minutes of your valuable time to fill this survey. Both SCOR and the early career scientists will benefit greatly from it.
Please feel free to forward this survey to other early career colleagues in ocean science. Wishing you all the best in your scientific careers, and good health in these difficult times.
Thanks and best regards,
Patricia Miloslavich           
SCOR Executive Director
