Applications for Fall 2020 are now open!
The 2020 symposium will be held 19-24 October 2020 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.
The application deadline has been extended to 15 June 2020. Letters of support may be provided with the application, or emailed separately to email@example.com (deadline 30 June).
For more information regarding the symposium, read the other Eco-DAS pages on this website or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Past symposia have resulted in proceedings volumes published as Limnology and Oceanography e-Books; individual articles appearing in Limnology and Oceanography: Letters, Limnology and Oceanography: Fluids and Environments, Limnology and Oceanography Bulletin, F1000 Research, Oecologia, Environmental Evidence and other journals; and the Wikiproject Limnology and Oceanography.
Eco-DAS funding is provided by NSF (Award OCE-1925796) and the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography.
COVID-19 NOTE: We expect that current travel restrictions will be lifted in the near future, and that Eco-DAS will be held in October 2020 as planned. However, if circumstances require rescheduling the conference somewhat later, individuals who have been invited will automatically be invited to the rescheduled symposium. Your efforts to prepare a thoughtful application will not be wasted!
