Tennenbaum Marine Observatories Network

Call for FY14 MarineGEO Postdoctoral Fellowship Proposals

Submission Deadline15 January 2014

The Tennenbaum Marine Observatories Network (TMON) is the first network of marine observatories focused on global-scale, long-term study of coastal biodiversity and ecosystems using standardized approaches. The network is a developing partnership of diverse organizations facilitating long-term interdisciplinary, comparative research. TMON currently includes the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, Edgewater, Maryland (SERC), the Smithsonian Marine Station at Ft. Pierce, Florida (SMSFP), the Carrie Bow Cay Marine Field Station (CCRE Program-Belize), and sites on both Caribbean and Pacific sides of Panama administered by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, Panama (STRI). Additional partner sites are under development. TMON invites research proposals for a Postdoctoral Fellowship that will complement our developing comparative research program.
