Eco-DAS 2020

Apply to attend Eco-DAS XIV!


Continuing travel and conference restrictions prevent holding Eco-DAS XIV as originally scheduled in October 2020.  The symposium will be postponed to a later date, to be determined by the pace at which travel and conference restrictions return to normal.  The application deadline has been suspended.  Given the pace of recovery from the pandemic, we do not anticipate setting a new deadline before October 2020.  In the meantime, we welcome applications for the rescheduled event and all applications will be considered on an equal basis.  Despite the postponement, your efforts in preparing your application will not be wasted!

The 2020 symposium will be held at the East-West Center adjacent to the University of Hawai`i campus in Honolulu, Hawai`i. Applicants should have received their PhD on or after 1 June 2019, or expect to receive it before 1 June 2021. The dissertation work of the applicant must deal with an important ecological problem in oceanography or limnology. Applications will include: a current resume, a letter of support from the applicants current (graduate or postdoctoral) advisor, an additional letter of support from another individual familiar with the applicant's background (optional), a personal statement regarding the applicants goals and reasons for applying (2 pages maximum), and a substantive outline of a proposed collaborative manuscript (3 pages maximum). All travel and on-site expenses will be paid by the program.

Letters of support may be provided with the application, or emailed separately to (deadline 30 July).
