Postdoc & Early Career

As part of InterRidge’s mission to promote international, collaborative, and interdisciplinary studies of oceanic spreading centers, we invite proposals for InterRidge Student and Postdoctoral Fellowships of up to 5000 US$ each. These Fellowships are designed to encourage international collaboration on any aspect of ridge-crest science by graduate students or postdoctoral researchers, fostering long-standing partnerships for their future careers. The Fellowships can be used for any field of ridge-crest research in line with the Third Decadal Plan (2014-2023) of InterRidge. Proposals out of this scope will not be considered. These awards may be used, for instance, for cruise participation or laboratory work by adding an international dimension to the Fellow’s research.

This year we may offer up to 6 IR Fellowships including 1 joint IR-ISA Endowment Fund Fellowship. Fellowships funded by the International Seabed Authority (ISA) Endowment Fund are open either to graduate students or postdocs from developing countries, or to young scientists from any other country if the application demonstrates that it will benefit ridge-related science in developing countries.

The International Seabed Authority Endowment Fund promotes and encourages the conduct of collaborative marine scientific research in the international seabed area for the benefit of humankind through two main activities by:

- supporting the participation of qualified scientists and technical personnel from developing countries in marine scientific research programs and activities,

- providing opportunities to these scientists to participate in relevant initiatives.
