The early-career researcher workshop "Demystifying the IODP Proposal Process for Early Career Scientists: Pacific Ocean" will be held from 17-20 February 2020 at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University, Palisades, NY, USA.

Description

Scientific ocean drilling is central to the study of Earth’s climate history, tectonic evolution, geohazards, and deep biosphere. A large, dynamic, and diverse ocean drilling community is vital to the health of the program; engaging early-career scientists in expedition planning and leadership is critical to the future of IODP.

For early-career scientists who are new to the community, developing an IODP proposal from conception to drilling is a daunting task that can appear insurmountable. This workshop for early-career researchers aims to correct that.

Participants will hear a series of speakers explain the structure of IODP and how early-career scientists can become involved in IODP activities from sailing to expedition proposals. Then, they will work on the initial stages of developing real drilling proposals in the Pacific Ocean.

The workshop will:

- Provide early career scientists with direct experience in the IODP proposal process,
- Build an interdisciplinary community of early career researchers that will be able to develop active research programs in coordination with the evolving landscape of ocean drilling research,
- Develop drilling proposal ideas to investigate the Pacific Basin, where the JOIDES Resolution ship track is expected beginning 2023. Prior research experience in this basin is not required for participation.

The workshop will begin with a series of speakers explaining the structure of IODP and how early career scientists can become involved in IODP activities, from sailing to expedition proposals. Then, workshop participants will work on the initial stages of developing real drilling proposals in the Pacific Ocean, where the JOIDES Resolution is expected to be operating beginning in 2023-2024.

Registration/application

The deadline to submit an application is 18 October 2019.

Oranizers aim to attract a diverse array of specialists (in geophysics, paleoceanography, deep biosphere, tectonics, etc.) to facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations.

Workshop participation support is available from the U.S. Science Support Program for IODP, for a limited number of graduate students and early career researchers (i.e., those who have completed their PhD within the past 10 years) from U.S. institutions and organizations.
