EMB opens call for 2 new Ambassadors

EMB is looking for two enthusiastic, engaged, and creative early career marine scientists to join their Ambassador Programme. The Ambassadors will play an important role in advocating for EMB and promoting the societal and political relevance of all aspects of the Ocean and marine sciences, including natural sciences, social sciences, policy, and humanities, within their own communities, and to a wide diversity of stakeholders in Europe. The two new Ambassadors will collaborate and liaise with our current Ambassadors and recent Alumni to share experiences and ideas and work on activities together.

The EMB Ambassador Programme is open to PhD students (in the first two years of PhD) or post-doc researchers (with at least two years left on current contract) who are able to engage in the EMB Ambassador Programme for a period of two years.

For this role, we are seeking enthusiastic and engaged individuals who are willing to use their creativity, imagination, communication, artistic talents, and interpersonal skills to help promote EMB activities and marine topics into various stakeholders in Europe. EMB Ambassadors can be stationed inside or outside the EU and can have a background in any aspect related to the marine environment, including natural sciences, social sciences, policy and governance, humanities, interdisciplinary research, and/or science communication. They do not need to be EU citizens, but they do need to have a demonstrable link with at least 1 of the 35 EMB Member Organizations.

The EMB will support ambassadors in their activities (including support of the EMB ECOP Network), as well as financially, in networking, and with publicity for their own work.

Watch our video here explaining more about the Programme and its benefits.
