SPECIAL CALL: Expedition 375 (Hikurangi Subduction Margin)

ECORD is seeking scientists with experience in paleomagnetism and biostratigraphy (foraminifera, nannofossils, and radiolarians) to participate in IODP Expedition 375: Hikurangi Subduction Margin (8 March–5 May 2018) aboard the JOIDES Resolution.

This expedition will investigate slow slip events (SSE) along the northern Hikurangi subduction margin.  Sampling material from the sedimentary section and oceanic basement of the subducting plate and from primary active thrusts in the outer accretionary wedge will reveal the rock properties, composition, and lithological and structural character of the active faults involved in the SSE.

Please see the SPECIAL CALL for more information.  The deadline to apply is 2 February 2017.

Canadian-based applicants must be NSERC-funded active researchers, or students/fellows working under the direct supervision of such researchers.  Candidates may request support and feedback on their application from the CCOD Coordinator.  All candidates must send their application to iodpcanada@gmail.com at least 5 days before the deadline (before submission to ECORD) for approval by the CCOD Executive Committee. 

Please note that the way in which Canada participates in IODP has recently changed.  Funding for our membership in ECORD is now solely driven by the members of the CCOD and their respective universities, and is guaranteed until December 31, 2017.  Canadian selection for expeditions is contingent upon Canada maintaining active membership.  All applicants should thus contact us to see how they can help.
