Do you work on ocean acidification in the polar regions?
The Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program (AMAP) is currently preparing its second assessment on Arctic Ocean
acidification. APECS has been asked to nominate an early-career researcher to participate in this process as an
expert. This expert would also be invited to participate in a workshop on May 27-28 2014 in Gothenburg, Sweden where a
draft extended outline for the assessment will be prepared.
Participation in this assessment provides a unique opportunity for an early-career researcher working on ocean
acidification to influence policy and work with AMAP. This will be the second assessment undertaken by AMAP on
acidification. The first assessment can be found here:
Although neither APECS nor AMAP have funding to send the selected candidate to the workshop or finance work / research
that would have to be done by the candidate for the assessment, participation in the assessment without attending the
workshop and on your own costs is still a great opportunity and completely possible.
If you are interested in participating as an expert in the assessment, please send us a full CV and a brief statement
of interest (1/3 page max) stating your interest in participating in this process and explaining how your research
background makes you a suitable expert on the topic by April 2nd, 2014. If you are able to attend the workshop portion of the assessment
please indicate this, if you are unable to attend the workshop on your own expenses, this is not a problem, but should
