2019 NSF-UNOLS Biological and Chemical Oceanography Chief Scientist Training Cruise Application - R/V Kilo Moana
**UNOLS is seeking applications from early career scientists at U.S universities who are interested in participating in an oceanographic cruise with an emphasis on Biological and Chemical Oceanography research. This cruise will take advantage of shipboard and PI supplied equipment to address scientific questions related to the role of biology in regulating vertical exchanges of bioelements between the upper ocean and the ocean's interior waters. The cruise will take place aboard the R/V Kilo Moana from June 15-24, 2019, departing and arriving from Honolulu, HI. The goal of this program is to help early-career marine scientists plan and write effective cruise proposals, develop collaborative sampling strategies and plans to address key scientific questions, become familiar with shipboard equipment and sampling at sea, and communicate major findings through writing of manuscripts and cruise reports. Graduate students, post-docs and new faculty are welcome to apply. Pre-cruise meetings and workshops will be used to identify participant-specific research questions and objectives.
To apply for this opportunity, please complete the information below. The deadline to apply is March 18, 2019.
This application will request basic contact and demographic information, as well as research background and interests in order to aid participant selection.
Note: Travel costs and research supplies will be provided. Space is limited.**
