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!

     

     

    Public Forum: Rosenberg Institute, “Ocean acidification: How does it impact the California Coast?”

    April 5, 2017, Bay Conference Center at the Romberg Tiburon Centre, Tiburon, CA

    The West Coast of the U.S. sits at the forefront of addressing impacts of OA, due to local oceanography and recent, catastrophic failures at oyster hatcheries over the past decade. Research along the West Coast has brought into sharp focus the potential local consequences of highly acidified seawater for aquaculture operations and California ecosystems more broadly. In response, states have mobilized in developing policy and science recommendations (e.g., WA Ocean Acidification Blue Ribbon Panel, and the West Coast Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia Panel). This talk will review the science of OA, how it is impacting the California Coast, and how the West Coast states have shown leadership in addressing this problem.

    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.
