We are pleased to announce a Chief Scientist Training Cruise Opportunity *with
an emphasis on Marine Geology and Geophysics research* that will take place
in December 2016 (2 – 17 December) aboard the R/V Sikuliaq during a transit
from Honolulu, HI to San Diego, CA.

Please share with your colleagues and anyone else you think might be

The Chief Scientist Training Cruise Opportunity will include:

-       a 2-day pre-cruise informational workshop on using the ship as a
tool, cruise planning and proposal writing in Honolulu, HI (29-30 November)

-       phone conference planning sessions (this is pre-arrival at HI)

-       move onto the ship (1 December)

-       a 16-day research cruise aboard the R/V Sikuliaq (2-17 December)

-       on-board presentations and demonstrations

The goal of this program is to help early-career marine scientists (e.g., *PhD
students, postdocs and new faculty*) plan and write effective cruise
proposals, plan surveys to address significant scientific questions,
execute surveys at sea, and generate at-sea cruise reports for marine
geological and geophysical research and education.

Participants will plan and execute six days of at-sea marine geophysical
research that will take advantage of the ship’s installed equipment to
address specific scientific questions identified during pre-cruise

Travel costs, research supplies, and shipping will be paid for
participants. Space is limited. To apply you must be an employee or student
(U.S. Citizen or permanent resident) at a U.S. institution or a U.S.
citizen working abroad.

*Application deadline extended to October 7, 2016. *

Please complete the Survey Monkey on-line application at:


This 10-15 minute survey will request basic contact and demographic
information, as well as research background and interests.
