Opportunity to attend ocb workshop on ocean acidification (22-24 March)


There are 6 spaces available for early career scientists and for scientists from underrepresented groups to attend the first meeting for US principal investigators working on ocean acidification research projects. This meeting will be held in Woods Hole, MA on March 22-24, 2011.

The meeting agenda and information can be found at

Unlike other OCB activities, this meeting is by necessity invitation-only (due to funding and space limitations), and unfortunately just these 6 spaces will be offered via an application process. These slots will be made available to those pursuing ocean acidification research and who qualify as one of the following:
– students within the last year of earning their Ph.D.
– postdoctoral researchers and early career scientists (<10 years from Ph.D.) NOT employed by a federal agency
– researchers from underrepresented groups* NOT employed by a federal agency

To apply, please send the following to Sarah Cooley (scooley@whoi.edu) by March 2, 2011 at 5:00 pm EST: your contact information and a 1-page summary that describes your research interests, your present research that is relevant to ocean acidification, and why you should attend this particular meeting. We will notify applicants of the organizing committee’s decision by March 4, 2011.
[* Note: NSF identifies “underrepresented groups” as, for example, Alaska Natives, Native Americans, Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, and persons with disabilities.]

Thank you,
The OCB-OA subcommittee
