The Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans (POGO) is pleased to announce that the POGO-SCOR Visiting Fellowship programme for 2017 is now open for applications. The deadline for applications is 7 April 2017. The scheme is designed to promote training and capacity building leading towards a global observation scheme for the oceans, and is aimed at scientists, technicians, postgraduate 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. The fellowship is not meant for an academic course or to learn research methods. 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.
