US Marine Science Organization Seeks Committee Members

Press Release
Friday, September 28, 2012

UNOLS (University-National Oceanographic Laboratory System) seeks nominations to fill two Fleet Improvement Committee (FIC) vacancies.

The Fleet Improvement Committee works to assure the continuing excellence of the UNOLS Fleet and to assure that the number, mix and overall capability of ships in the UNOLS fleet match the science requirements of academic oceanography in the U.S. This is an important time for the FIC as several stages of new vessel design, construction and transition to operations are in progress.
 
Candidates should be experienced in the UNOLS Fleet and shipboard science activities. The committee membership should represent diverse disciplines and broad geographic interests.  To maintain a disciplinary balance on the FIC, individuals with research expertise in chemical or geological oceanography are preferred.  One position must be filled by a candidate from a UNOLS ship operator institution and the other position can be filled from any institution other than ship operators.  The committee members are appointed by the UNOLS Chair based on the recommendation of the FIC and with the concurrence of the UNOLS Council. 
 
FIC members are expected to attend two FIC meetings annually.  One meeting is normally held in the fall in conjunction with the UNOLS Council and Annual meetings at the National Science Foundation in Arlington, VA.  The second meeting is typically held in the winter/late spring and the location will vary from year to year.  Terms of office are three years, each with the possibility of re-election for a second term.
