Calls for committees and panels

ANZIC and IODP Governance Roles

ANZIC rotates the roles of committee members and representatives on IODP panels (generally for 3 year periods). A number of rotations concluded in 2017 and therefore we seek new representative in 2018. These roles are varied in their time commitment and reporting responsibilities to the ANZIC Program scientist, IODP committees, the ANZIC Governing Council and Science Committee. I encourage applicants at appropriate career stages to consider stepping up to the roles on offer. Members of these groups are directly involved in the science and practicalities of the IODP program and are expected to represent ANZIC in a general sense and ocean drilling in the broad sense. Most decisions are made by consensus. It is an honour, and a great learning and networking experience to be on the committees/boards. Travel costs are covered by the ANZIC office, including economy class air tickets.
