NOAA Seeks Members

NOAA is looking for as many as four potential members for its Ocean Exploration Advisory Board. The committee consults the NOAA administrator on ocean exploration-related issues, including strategic planning, exploration priorities and competitive grant programs. Committee members will also be able to weigh in on the development of a national program of ocean exploration.

Applicants should be experts in “scientific research relevant to ocean exploration, including marine archaeology, or ocean-science education and communication,” according to NOAA.

Dec. 9 is the deadline to submit applications to serve a three-year term that is renewable one time. There will be three to four meetings annually, besides subcommittee, task force and working group meetings.
