This symposium provides recent graduates, or soon to graduate, PhD-level physical oceanographers with an opportunity to present their dissertation research in front of their professional peers and to forge professional relationships that will facilitate their future research and academic careers.
Participation in the PODS symposium is by invitation only to applicants who have completed a dissertation concerning an important problem in ocean physics. Dissertations must have been completed after June 30, 2009, or applicants must provide certification from their department chair or Dean that they will complete their degree by July 1, 2011. The deadline to apply is April 19, 2010. Applications received by that date will be reviewed by a screening committee and invitations issued by June 18, 2010.
