Applications open for the NF-POGO Centre of Excellence at Alfred Wegener Institute on Helgoland and Sylt, Germany
Wednesday, 13 February 2019
We would like to let you know that applications are open for the next Nippon Foundation-POGO Centre of Excellence (NF-POGO CofE) at the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI) on the islands of Helgoland and Sylt. The course is open to 10 participants. Trainees must have at least a first degree in science. Preference will be given to applicants who currently hold a position in a research or academic institution in a developing country and anticipate returning to the country after completion of training at the NF-POGO Centre of Excellence at AWI. The 10-month training will promote excellence in integrated, multidisciplinary oceanography at a global scale by emphasizing core skills (e.g. writing, scientific presentations, statistics and experimental design) and specialised scientific topics such as modelling, remote sensing, ocean-atmosphere interactions.
Your application should be submitted by 1 March 2019. Applicants will be notified if they have been selected by end of May 2019. Scholarships will be provided from NF-POGO through the CofE that cover travel, room, board, tuition, and a modest allowance for those students accepted into the programme. For more information on course synopsis, eligibility and prospects, please see the website HERE.

We would like to inform you that the Tropical Pacific Observing System 2020 (TPOS 2020) Project released its Second Report draft for community review. TPOS 2020 released its First Report in 2016 and the Second Report builds on that document. It updates the evolving design of the Backbone observing system, drawing on new research and evidence including feedback received on the First Report, and responds to gaps identified by sponsors of the Project. If you would like to be a reviewer of the Second Report, please find it on the TPOS 2020 website (http://tpos2020.org/project-reports/second-report/), along with the Review Template. The marine biogeochemistry community might be particularly interested to review the contents of Chapter 4: Biogeochemical and Ecosystem Observations.
