Early Career Research and Diversity
The Challenger Society is looking for a new council member to hold the Early Career Researcher (ECR) and Diversity in Marine Sciences portfolio. The portfolio includes representing ECR and Diversity interests on the council; overseeing and maintaining the ECR section of the challenger website; liaising with the comms and social media officer to advertise opportunities to the ECR community. The rep will also assist with the biannual Challenger Society conference and organise the ECR and diversity in marine science workshop. The holder will become a member of the society’s governing body, the Challenger Council, and will be invited to attend 4 council meetings every year.
If this sounds like a task for you, and you feel that you can contribute and make sure that the society stays visible, then please do get in touch. Send your application, consisting of a short summary of your background and social media experience, to Dr Mattias Green (firstname.lastname@example.org), the society’s honorary secretary.
Deadline for applications is March 31st 2019.

Ocean Challenge search function
There is a new online search function for all Ocean Challenge issues that allows anyone to easily search for articles on a specific topic. We hope this will be used not just by the marine science community but by educators who would otherwise not have access to such resources.
