Applications are invited for the POGO-SCAR Visiting Fellowship Programme for 2019 for Ocean Observations and Applications. Apply by April 30.
About POGO-SCOR Visiting Fellowship:
This programme is jointly funded by Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans (POGO) and the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) and is designed to promote training and capacity building leading towards a global observation scheme for the oceans.
The Programme has been a success for over fifteen years, with more than 160 fellowships awarded since 2001.
Its main purpose is to advance sustained ocean observations and their applications; it offers the opportunity to visit other oceanographic centres for a short period (1 to 3 months) for training on any aspect of oceanographic observations, analyses, and interpretation.
Who can Apply?
- The fellowship program is open to scientists, technicians, postgraduate students (preferably of Ph.D. level) and post-doctoral fellows of developing countries and countries with economies in transition and involved in oceanographic work.
- Applicants must be citizens of developing countries or economies in transition, as defined by the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the OECD, for more information see the list of eligible countries.
- Priority is given to applicants in the early stages of career development.
- The fellowship does not constitute a salary or a bursary but is a contribution to traveling and living expenses calculated on a monthly basis.
- The fellowship will provide international airfare and subsistence allowance for the fellowship period.
- The trainee’s institute will bear all expenses incurred by the fellow in his/her own nation (domestic travel, visa costs, travel insurance etc.), and the host institute will waive any bench fees that they may normally charge trainees.
- POGO and SCOR do not cover any of the expenses related to the training itself (such as laboratory consumables).
