As global headlines focus on climate change, ocean acidification and tsunamis, marine geoscientists stand well positioned to serve the needs of society while pushing the frontiers of scientific research. To solve these challenges and forge the necessary links between science and society, marine geoscientists must reach beyond their individual laboratories, form interdisciplinary collaborations, and communicate their discoveries to the public and to policymakers.

The Marine Geoscience Leadership Symposium introduces these skills to early career marine geoscientists. Meeting April 18-22, 2011 in Washington, DC, participants will engage in small group discussions, participate in proposal workshops, and meet with funding agencies, media representatives, and policymakers. The symposium will provide leadership and communications training and begin the process of forming interdisciplinary research collaborations.

Application deadline is 31 Dec 2010
