Ocean Acidification Opportunities

In an effort to provide up-to-date opportunities either for funding or sharing of your research, we offer this web page as a resource to the community.

If you know of any opportunities within the ocean acidification community such as conferences, calls for proposal, publications, or available positions, please send them to noaa.oceanacidification@noaa.gov and they will be posted here. Thank you!

 

 

FY2017 Ocean Technology Transition Project

NOAA Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS)

The primary objective of IOOS’ Ocean Technology Transition Project (OTT) is to reduce the Research to Operations transition period for ocean observing, product development, and data management technologies for the ocean, coastal and Great Lakes. The term ‘Technologies’ includes: ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes sensors, Information Technology (data management, data visualization, model transition); platform enhancement, and technology modernization efforts. This objective is accomplished by investing in the transition of emerging and promising marine and Great Lakes observing technological capabilities from the mid to latter phases of research into operational status.

Ecological Responses to Carbonate and Oxygen Variability on the U.S. Atlantic Coast

Oak Ridge Associated Universities/EPA

A research opportunity is currently available at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Research and Development (ORD)/National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory (NHEERL). This appointment will be served with the Atlantic Ecology Division (AED) in Narragansett, RI. The participant will research the ecological effects of co-occurring changes in dissolved oxygen and carbonate chemistry (i.e., coastal acidification) in coastal waters of the eastern United States.

Oceanographer

Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission

The Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission has an open position for an oceanographer. This position will focus primarily on changing ocean conditions and associated impacts to species of interest, specifically as they relate to tribal ocean fishery resources. The species of interest include all marine species of importance to the coastal tribes that includes, but not limited to the following: flatfish, rockfish, halibut, groundfish (e.g., sablefish, lingcod and Pacific whiting), and forage fish (e.g., sardine and smelt) as well as the base of food web that these species depend upon. The incumbent will work under the direction of the coastal tribe’s fishery managers and their pertinent technical staff to support their marine science needs. This position will participate within international, federal, state and inter-tribal forums as well as scientific collaboratives as requested by the coastal tribes to observe, analyze, and report on the impacts of changing ocean condition related to treaty resources and ocean fishery management. This position will keep the coastal tribes informed on the current state of knowledge with changing ocean conditions and work with technical staff and partner researchers to conduct novel research in understanding how changing ocean conditions will impact treaty resources. The position will apply for grant funding, write grant reports, and publish scientific literature that will benefit the interests and concerns of the coastal tribes.

Energy Department Announces Up to $8 Million to Develop Algae-Based Biofuels

U.S. Department of Energy

On December 15, the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE's) Bioenergy Technologies Office announced a funding opportunity of up to $8 million, subject to appropriations, for innovative technologies and approaches to help advance bioenergy and bioproducts from algae. Projects selected with this funding will support the development of advanced biofuels and valuable co-products from algal biomass by focusing on breakthroughs in advanced biology as well as biology-based tools. Selected projects will also accelerate future innovations through data sharing within the research and development community.

State of the science workshop

Alaska Ocean Acidification Network

The Alaska Ocean Acidification Network is hosting a 2-day workshop in Anchorage, inviting a broad audience across the state interested in ocean acidification issues. The aim of this workshop is to educate the broader Alaska community on the processes and consequences of OA, create connections between researchers and stakeholders, and develop new ideas and partnerships to enhance monitoring and community engagement. A report on the state of the science in Alaska will be produced after the workshop, as well as a set of recommendations to help guide the Alaska OA Network.

Day 1 will be conducted in plenary format and is intended to engage a broad audience including fishermen, shellfish growers, resource managers, researchers, coastal residents and anyone interested in ocean acidification. This first day will provide the basics on OA and an overview of research, monitoring, trends, forecasts and strategies for adaptation.  Day 2 will be more discussion-oriented and include breakout groups, a session for OA researchers, and a meeting of the Alaska OA Network steering committee.

Postdoctoral Opportunity: Biogeochemical Modelling

GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel

GEOMAR is looking for candidates with a strong interest in Earth system modelling and model assessment. The research project will focus on the selection of indicators and development of metrics to assess a number of climate engineering ideas (such as afforestation, ocean alkalinisation, solar radiation management,…) in the context of mitigation. Tools will be developed and tested on the basis of model simulations of various climate engineering scenarios employing new and already existing runs of intermediate complexity (UVic) and complex Earth system (MPI-ESM) models. Metric development will account for model uncertainties (e.g. by analysing perturbed parameter ensembles) and include collaboration with scientists from other disciplines engaged in the Priority Program, such as social sciences, international law and ethics, and some readiness to engage in interdisciplinary work is required.

Federal Funding Opportunity: Understanding Climate Impacts on Fish Stocks and Fisheries to Inform Sustainable Management

Climate Program Office

The NOAA Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR), Climate Program Office and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Office of Science and Technology have established a partnership to advance understanding of climate-related impacts on fish or other species that support economically important fisheries. The goal is to inform sustainable fisheries management and promote resilience of the nation’s fish stocks and fisheries in a changing climate.

For FY17, this OAR/NMFS partnership, through the Coastal and Ocean Climate Applications (COCA) Program, will continue to take a regional approach to improving the resilience and adaptation of fisheries in a changing climate by soliciting proposals under two competitions. The first competition solicits proposals for projects in the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem (CCLME) and the second competition solicits proposals for projects in the Northeast Shelf Large Marine Ecosystem (NESLME). Through this announcement, it is estimated that approximately $2.2 million will be available in FY2017 for new awards pending budget appropriations. For competition I, projects can request up to $700,000 a year for three years, for a total of $2.1 million over three years. For competition II, projects can request up to $500,000 a year for three years for a total of $1.5 million over three years.
