JSPS Ronpaku PhD program Opportunity

Dear Colleagues,

Good Morning!

If you know of any researcher (age < 45) who would be interested and qualified for a JSPS Ronpaku PhD program, please encourage them to contact me. The full information about the program is in the link below, but a short summary is provided below for convenience.
One of the nice things about the program is that the candidate can continue working at their home country while working towards the PhD. The fellowship supports short annual visits to Japan for the candidate, and for the PhD supervisor to visit the fellow's country.
The aim of JSPS RONPAKU (Dissertation PhD) Program is to provide tutorial and financial support for promising researchers in Asia and Africa who wish to obtain their Ph.D. degrees from Japanese universities through the submission of a dissertation without matriculating a doctoral course. This program is implemented in cooperation with JSPS's overseas nominating organizations in Asia and Africa.
1. less than 45 years as of Apr 1, 2015
2. Should not have a PhD
3. Should be full-time employed at Research Institute or University in home country
4. Should be actively involved in research and has substantial research results.

Deadline for contacting me: July 15, 2014
Further information is at

Fwd: [ocean-color] Second IOCCG Summer Lecture Series

Second IOCCG Summer Lecture Series

Applications are now open for the Second IOCCG Summer Lecture Series, which will take place in Villefranche-sur-Mer, France from 21 July to 2 August 2014. This course is dedicated to high-level training in the fundamentals of ocean optics, bio-optics and ocean colour remote sensing. A number of distinguished scientists have been invited to provide lectures on cutting edge research, focusing on current critical issues in ocean colour science. Students will be given ample opportunity to meet with the lecturers for in-depth discussions on various pre-selected topics, as well as their own scientific research. As was done for the past Summer Lecture Series, all the lectures will be video recorded and made available online. These recorded lectures are a valuable training resource and have been downloaded by students from around the world.  see:

Further information about the training course, as well as the application forms, can be found at: 

The deadline for applications is 14 March 2014.

New Ocean Color Remote Sensing Portal for Southeast Asian Region

New ocean color remote sensing portal has been prepared by Marufish to disseminate the latest ocean color remote sensing development in the Southeast Asia region. This effort is aimed to promote stronger collaboration among the ocean remote sensing researchers in the region as well as to encourage more young scientist to involve in this unique technology for monitoring the ocean health status.

If you have any publication on the ocean remote sensing that related to the Southeast Asia region, you are welcome to submit your publication information to the Ocean Color Remote Sensing Portal for sharing with others.

For more details, kindly access to

Fwd: [ocean-color] Postdoctoral Scholar in Optical Remote Sensing and Applications at USF

Postdoctoral Scholar in Optical Remote Sensing and Applications

The Optical Oceanography Lab ( of the College of Marine Science at the University of South Florida (USF) is offering a 2-year Postdoctoral Scholar position in the field of optical remote sensing and applications. We are seeking an outstanding scientist with a recent doctorate in ocean optics or remote sensing, or a closely related field to work on Federal funded projects.
The successful candidate should demonstrate excellence in radiative transfer modeling, atmospheric correction (multi-band and hyperspectral) of satellite and airborne measurements (e.g., MODIS, MERIS,         AVIRIS), algorithm development, and scholarly productivity. Strong programming skills in common languages such as FORTRAN, C/C++, IDL, or MatLAB are required. The successful candidate is expected to work heavily on hyperspectral data         collected from both satellite and airborne platforms over both land and ocean in order to retrieve georeferenced and atmospherically corrected data products (e.g., surface         reflectance, gaseous absorption, etc.). The successful candidate is also expected to work with other team members to apply these products in addressing inter-disciplinary Earth Science questions.

The position is available immediately, and the 2-year appointment can be extended, contingent upon satisfactory performance and funding availability. Annual salary is US$50,000 (or commensurable with experience) with standard fringe benefits.

The College of Marine Science at USF is a rapidly expanding group spanning all of the major marine science disciplines. We encourage interested applicants to review our research programs by visiting our web site at: For         information regarding the available position, please contact Prof. Chuanmin Hu at 1-727-553-3987 or
