The MARINE Squawk

Sharing our events, and other ocean professional development opportunities, from around Monterey Bay and beyond.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Colloquium over the weekend. We had a great time, and personally I feel pretty fired up after all the #OceanOptimism. There is a lot of work to be done, but we are definitely in the time and the place to get it started! We won't have another MARINE event until the fall, but there's still plenty of happenings going on in the Bay for you to take advantage of!

Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at age three, Mallory Smith went on to graduate from Stanford University and forge a career as an environmental journalist, inspiring others even as she privately raged against her illness. For more than ten years, Mallory recorded her thoughts and observations about struggles and feelings too personal to share during her life, leaving instructions for her mother to publish her work posthumously. After her death at age 25, Mallory’s mother Diane Shader Smith honored her daughter’s wish with the completion of Mallory’s memoir, Salt in My Soul, An Unfinished Life. Join her and one of Mallory’s physicians, David Cornfield, in conversation about Mallory, hope, love, care and chronic illness. More info here and here.

What We Gain From Restoring What Was Lost: Eelgrass Restoration Success in Elkhorn Slough
Seymour Marine Discovery Center Science Sunday Series
100 McAllister Way, Santa Cruz, CA 95060
Sun, May 19, 1:30-2:30PM PST

Seagrasses are in global decline despite restoration efforts. Locally, Elkhorn Slough suffered massive seagrass loss in the mid 1900s. Since 1980, there has been some natural recovery in the slough—though small relative to historical extent. Unfortunately, that rate of recovery has plateaued in recent years. Can research improve local eelgrass recovery? What will the benefits be? How will restoration affect biodiversity, water quality, and the productivity of Elkhorn Slough? Join Kat Beheshti to learn more about eelgrass restoration in Elkhorn Slough. More info here.

Other Opportunities

OceanHack 2019
Application Deadline: May 13, 2019 (for 8/26-8/30 event)

Oceanhackweek is a 5-day learning hackathon aimed at exploring, creating and promoting effective computation and analysis workflows for large and complex oceanographic data. By democratizing data access and increasing exposure to technological assets, our goals are to accelerate research, promote collaboration and cultivate data science literacy among the ocean sciences community. Support for travel, food, and lodging is possible. More info here.

Postdoctoral Fellowship, Marine Genomics
Application Deadline: May 22, 2019
The National Research Council of Canada represents a powerful partnering option for anyone looking to push the boundaries of science and industry. NRC is seeking a PDF researcher to lead the identification and characterization of phytoplankton species that decline or proliferate in response to petroleum oil exposure and develop DNA-based markers for informative species so that they may be quantified in situ in the ocean environment. Based on the emerging field of environmental DNA (eDNA) and new sequencing technology platforms, various sampling techniques and bio-sensing methodologies will be developed and assessed for the collection of real-time data from the marine environment. More info here.

Marine Aquarium Science Scholarship

More info here.

Graduate Equity Fellowship (MLML-SJSU Students Only)
Application Deadline: June 15, 2019

The College of Graduate Studies opened the Graduate Equity Fellowship today.  This is a needs-based scholarship with awards ranging from $2,000 to $4,000.  While it is not required that a student be currently enrolled in a graduate program (instead, entering in F19), students with a semester or more of graduate study are more likely to have successful applications. More info here.

We receive many more offers for fellowships, scholarships, grants, and internships than we can list, but feel free to follow us on social media or email us directly for additional resources.
