Call for applications: POGO-SCOR Fellowship 2023

The Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO) and Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) are pleased to announce that the POGO-SCOR Fellowship programme for 2023 is now open for applications.

The deadline for applications is 15 May 2023 (23:59 UTC+2).

The scheme is designed to promote training and capacity development, leading towards a global observation scheme for the ocean, and is aimed at scientists, technicians, graduate students (preferably PhD) and post-doctoral fellows involved in oceanographic work at centres in developing countries and countries with economies in transition.

Priority is given to applicants in the early stages of their career development. The fellowship offers the opportunity to visit other oceanographic centres for a short period (1 to 3 months) for training on aspects of oceanographic observations, analyses, and interpretation. It provides financial support to cover the return airfare from the fellow’s home country to the host institution, and a contribution towards accommodation and subsistence for the period of the visit.

For more information and details on how to apply please see:
