Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO)
The Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO) was founded in 1999 by directors of oceanographic institutions around the world as a forum to promote and advance the observation of the global ocean. POGO is a UK-registered charity with member institutions from around the world, and works closely with other international and regional programs and organizations.
POGO-SCOR Fellowship Program for Developing Countries
This program is jointly funded by POGO and the Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) and is designed to promote training and capacity building leading towards a global observation scheme for the oceans. The Program has been a success for around 20 years, with 190 fellowships awarded since 2001.
The main purpose of the program is to advance sustained ocean observations and their applications. Priority is given to applicants in early stages of career development. This fellowship is intended to support training in oceanographic observations, not to learn research techniques. Its main purpose is to advance sustained ocean observations and their applications; it offers the opportunity to visit other oceanographic centres for a short period (1 to 3 months) for training on any aspect of oceanographic observations, analyses, and interpretation.
Benefits of POGO-SCOR Fellowship Program
- International airfare
- Transport from airport to host institute
- Contribution towards living expenses
Requirements for POGO-SCOR Fellowship Program
- Open to scientists, technicians, postgraduate students (preferably of PhD level) and post-doctoral fellows of developing countries and countries with economies in transition and involved in oceanographic work.
- Applicants must be citizens of developing countries or economies in transition, as defined by the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the OECD.
The Selection Criteria involve a number of factors including:
- Quality of the application;
- Relevance of the application to the priority areas identified in the Fellowship Announcement (Emerging and low-cost technologies for ocean observations; Physical, biological and biogeochemical sensors on floats and gliders; Floating litter observations and modelling; Open and coastal ocean observation, modelling and management; Data management & time series analysis; Underwater sound, acoustic observations and modelling; Optical measurements of living and non-living particles; Fixed-point time-series observations (e.g. contributing to OceanSITES, OBIS, IODE Ocean Data Portal, WOD and/or other shared data systems); Large-scale, operational biological observations including biomolecular and biodiversity (e.g. biological EOVs, CPR, OBON and other programs));
- Evidence that the training will lead to capacity-building with potential lasting impact on regional observations; and,
- The need to maximize regional distribution of the awards.
