Nominate for 2015 SSC

ssc-2013-GoaPAGES is accepting nominations of scientists to serve on its Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) in 2015.

 The SSC is the body responsible for overseeing PAGES activities. Two new members are sought to fill Steven Colman and Fatima Abrantes' places, which will be vacant from January 2015. Scientists who serve on the SSC normally do so for a period of 3 years, with the potential of renewing for an additional 3-year term.

By 2015, it is envisioned PAGES will be operating under the Future Earth programme with strong links to WCRP. Nominees should be familiar with the development of these programmes and be able to contribute positively to strengthening PAGES' position within this environment.

In seeking nominations, we are not only looking for scientific excellence and a high level of commitment to PAGES goals, but are also aiming to achieve a disciplinary, nationality, gender and age balance.

The nomination guidelines are available at: www.pastglobalchanges.org/people/scientific-steering-committee/nominate.

The deadline for nominations is 9 January 2014.
