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
interested!



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
preparations.



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:

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/sikuliaq_chief_sci_training



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