Organization: Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean
Apply By: 30 Apr 2019
Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean, POGO, is a forum created in 1999 by directors and leaders of major oceanographic institutions around the world to promote global oceanography. POGO is a partnership of institutions involved in oceanographic observations, scientific research, operational services, education and training. POGO has 38 member institutes, including two consortia, from 20 different countries, and works closely with other international and regional programmes and organisations.
About the Fellowship:
The fellowship programme is jointly funded by 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.
The fellowship program is open to scientists, technicians, postgraduate students (preferably of PhD 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. The main purpose of the program is to advance sustained ocean observations and their applications. Priority is given to applicants in early stages of career development. This fellowship is intended to support training in oceanographic observations, not to learn research techniques. 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.
The Selection Criteria:
- Quality of the application;
- Relevance of the application to the priority areas identified in the Fellowship Announcement (Argo Floats and gliders; fixed-point time-series observations; large-scale, operational biological observations including biodiversity; emerging technologies for ocean observations; data management; coastal observations/ coastal zone management; ocean and coastal modelling; oxygen and other biogeochemical sensors on floats and gliders; optical measurements of living and non-living particles; time series measurements of N2O and CH4); ocean observations and modelling in the Indian Ocean (contributions to IIOE-2).
- Evidence that the training will lead to capacity-building with potential lasting impact on regional observations; and,
- The need to maximise regional distribution of the awards.
What does the fellowship offer?
- Funding to spend between one and three months at another oceanographic institute, anywhere in the world, to receive training on any aspect of oceanographic observation analyses and interpretation. The fellowship is NOT intended for an academic course of study, or for research.
Who can apply?
- Scientists, technicians, postgraduate students or post-doctoral fellows from developing countries and countries with economies in transition (priority is given to early-career scientists).
