Two berths available under the scope @SeaNetwork

Two berths have just been made available for the @SeaNetwork for the next cruise on the new RV Belgica II, from 1-12 September (Zeebrugge- Zeebrugge, Belgium).

The cruise will be conducted in the framework of the NORSEAT project and will focus on collecting vibrocores offshore the Shetland Islands in order to recover event deposits related to past North Sea tsunamis. 

The applicants must be highly motivated MSc or PhD geology students with a good sedimentology background. Unfortunately, due to the short time, candidates must already have a valid visa for Belgium or not need a visa to enter Europe.  

UGent will cover all costs on board, including accommodation the night before and after the survey.  

Candidates must secure funding for travel to and back from Belgium. However, POGO can cover the travel costs (i.e., return flight to Belgium and domestic travel within Belgium) for one of the selected candidates if the candidate, in addition to the requirements above, is a national of and involved in oceanographic work in a developing country (list of eligible countries here). 

Applications are straightforward and an email is all that is needed, sent to by the 23rd july 23h00 CET, with Cc to Luis Menezes Pinheiro,, including the candidate’s name and contacts, a short CV and a motivation letter explaining why they want to participate in this cruise. Candidates must clearly state in the email if they will require support from POGO for travel costs.
