SPECIAL CALL: Paleontologists for Expedition 381 (Corinth Active Rift Development)

ECORD is seeking two paleontologists to join the Science Party for IODP Expedition 381: Corinth Active Rift Development. This special call is particularly addressed towards foram and nannofossil specialists. Preferences will be given to applicants from France or Germany; however, applicants from other ECORD Member Countries are welcomed as well.

This expedition will drill within the active Corinth Rift, Greece, where deformation rates are high, the syn-rift succession is preserved and accessible, and a dense, seismic database provides a high-resolution fault network and seismic stratigraphy for the recent rift history but with limited chronology. 

Please see the attached call for more information.  The deadline to apply is 9 June 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.
