The Integrated Marine Biosphere Research project (IMBeR, www.imber.info) invites 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.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Tuesday 15 September 2020.
