Nominate for PAGES SSC

ssc2014-mtg

PAGES is calling for nominations of scientists to serve on its Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) from 2016.

The deadline is 5 January 2015.

The SSC is the body responsible for overseeing PAGES activities. Four new members are sought to fill the places of Immaculate Ssemanda, Chris Turney, Alan Mix, and Denis-Didier Rousseau, which will be vacant from January 2016 (see SSC membership history). 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 2015/2016, it is envisioned PAGES will be operating under the Future Earth programme with active collaborations with the 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 balance across disciplines, nationalities, gender and age.

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

The deadline for nominations is 5 January 2015.
