Location- Oceanographic centres
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.
Priority is given to applicants in early stages of career development.
The Selection Criteria involve a number of factors including:
- 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.
The main purpose of the program is to advance sustained ocean observations and their applications.
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.
How to Apply- Applications for 2019 are open from 6 March 2019 to 30 Apr 2019, and should be made via the marinetraining.eu website.
