The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) and the Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS) are looking for an early career scientist to join the SOOS Southern Ocean Air-Sea Flux Capability Working Group (SOFLUX CWG).

The successful applicant will contribute to telecons and planning discussions, and help to coordinate information sharing within the SOFLUX community.  SOFLUX interests include fluxes of heat, fresh water, momentum, and gases.  SOFLUX has several active themes:  coordinating in situ observations of air-sea fluxes, including promoting process studies and sustained observations; evaluating requirements for air-sea fluxes; building links to modelling, assimilation, and satellite observations to provide a global assessment of air-sea fluxes; supporting communication in the community through a newsletter and a webinar series. The early career representative will participate in telecons and meetings, help to take minutes and compile notes, serve as a liaison to APECS, help to prepare newsletter items, and contribute to other steering committee activities.
