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.
