Call for ANZIC Program Scientist

Neville Exon will be vacating the ANZIC Program Scientist position that he has held since 2008 in early September this year,
The Program Scientist looks after scientific aspects of ANZIC’s involvement in IODP. Thus he/she is involved in high-level scientific planning both in Australia and New Zealand and internationally; in the meetings of the ANZIC Governing Council and Science Committee; in scientific workshop planning; in encouraging and helping ANZIC scientists get involved in expeditions and international panels; in encouraging and helping our people develop drilling proposals in conjunction with our international partners; in publicising IODP in the ANZIC context including at scientific conferences and during port calls; and in producing a glossy annual report for wide consumption. Previous experience in scientific ocean drilling activities would be a distinct advantage but is not a pre-requisite. It is expected that the position would be filled by a geologist as very broadly defined.
Applications from foreign scientists are accepted.
Application information – Deadline to apply: 8 May 2017

Australasian IODP Regional Planning Workshop

The Australasian IODP Regional Planning Workshop will catalyse new IODP proposals to address globally relevant geoscience questions that can be addressed in the Australasian region, covering all four Themes of the IODP Science Plan. It will identify synergies, improve integration, discuss additional opportunities and establish the robust international alliances that are essential for strong research proposals. Detailed information about the workshop can be obtained from:
The workshop is co-funded through a MagellanPlus grant of ECORD. This open call invites applications from early-career scientists (PhD students and postdocs) of ECORD member countries for travel support to join the workshop. It is expected that 3 to 4 early-career scientists can receive partial funds (max €1500) from the MagellanPlus grant.
Applicants should submit their application as a single PDF document, including a short CV, publication list and brief statement of interest in this workshop, to Karsten Gohl ( and Jessica Whiteside ( by April 10, 2017. Preference will be given to applicants from countries other than Germany, UK and France. Decisions on applicants will be made by the four proponents of the MagellanPlus proposal, based on a balance of expertise or interest in the different oceans and covering IODP’s four different themes (
