The Integrated Marine Biosphere Research project (IMBeR, www.imber@info) welcomes applications either from one person for the role of Chair or from two people willing to act as Co-Chairs of its international Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) for a term of three years beginning on 1 January 2022.


The Chair or Co-Chairs of the SSC will be responsible for the overarching leadership and future scientific direction of IMBeR including the successful completion of the scientific and capacity building objectives in the IMBeR Science Plan and Implementation Strategy 2016-2025, and the appropriate positioning of the IMBeR community to take advantage of future funding and scientific opportunities after 2025. Considering the current funding landscape, we envisage that a new IMBeR Chair would have expertise in natural sciences such as marine ecology or biogeochemistry, whereas the joint expertise of two Co-Chairs could span these natural sciences and a social / interdisciplinary science.
