CALL: Expeditions 372 & 375

ECORD offers you the unique opportunity to participate in IODP Expeditions 372 and 375 onboard the JOIDES Resolution.
Expedition 372: Creeping Gas Hydrate Slides and Hikurangi LWD (26 November 2017 to 4 January 2018) aims to (1) investigate the relationship between gas hydrate and underwater landslides; and (2) characterize sediment and fault zone structures and physical properties associated with recurring shallow slow slip events along the Hikurangi subduction interface.
Expedition 375: Hikurangi Subduction Margin (8 March to 5 May 2018) will investigate slow slip events (SSE) along the northern Hikurangi subduction margin.
Opportunities exist for researchers (including graduate students) in all specialties–including but not limited to sedimentologists, petrologists, structural geologists, paleontologists, biostratigraphers, paleomagnetists, petrophysicists, borehole geophysicists, microbiologists, and inorganic/organic geochemists.
Please see the CALL and ESSAC webpage for more information and application instructions.
The deadline to apply is 1 October 2016.

IMPORTANT: Canadian-based applicants must be NSERC-funded active researchers, or students/fellows working under the direct supervision of such researchers.  Candidates must send their application to the IODP-Canada Office at least 1 week before the deadline (before submission to ECORD) for review by the CCOD Executive Committee.  Candidates wishing to receive comments on their application can request feedback from the CCOD Coordinator at any time.
