2012 POGO-SCOR Visiting Fellowship
The Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans (POGO) and the
Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) are calling for applications
for the 2012 POGO-SCOR Visiting Fellowship program. The deadline for
applications is 15 January 2012. Please note the earlier deadline compared
to previous years; this is to allow more time for the fellowships to take
place. (We expect the number of fellows that can be supported will be
similar to that of previous years, although final decisions on POGO funding
will be made in mid-January.)
The program is designed to promote training and capacity building leading
towards a global observation scheme for the ocean, and is aimed at
scientists, technicians, graduate students (PhD level) and post-doctoral
fellows involved in oceanographic work at centers in developing countries
and countries with economies in transition (e.g. Commonwealth of Independent
States, Eastern Europe).
Priority is given to applicants in early stages of their careers. The
fellowships 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. It provides financial support to
cover the round-trip airfare between the fellow's home country and the host
institution, and a contribution towards accommodation and subsistence for
the period of the visit. Please note that this fellowship is not designed
to support research.
