CALL FOR CANDIDATES:
A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR CIESM YOUNG SCIENTISTS TO TAKE PART IN AN OCEANOGRAPHIC
CAMPAIGN ON BOARD OF THE ITALIAN RESEARCH VESSEL OGS EXPLORA
Next June, a two weeks oceanographic campaign organized by OGS on board of the R/V OGS Explora will take place in the
Central Mediterranean Sea to acquire new geophysical data. The objective of the campaign is to investigate the sea-bottom
and the sub-seafloor of Sicily Channel, Ionian Sea and Gulf of Taranto to search for seismogenic faults that may be responsible
to cause submarine failures and other marine geoharzards. Multibeam echosounder, high-resolution seismic and sub-bottom
profiling will be carried out under the framework of the FASTMIT flagship project. Target countries are members of The
Mediterranean Science Commission (CIESM). OGS will financially support 2 CIESM young scientists from the Southern
7 -13 - June I Leg (Trapani - Crotone). Chief scientist Emanuele Lodolo
14 to 21 June 2017 II Leg (Crotone - Crotone). Chief scientist Silvia Ceramicola (date to be confirmed!)
The campaign will start in Trapani (Sicily) will acquire geophysical data in the Sicily channel, then will continue across the
Ionian Sea, in the Gulf of Taranto, with a port call in Crotone to change staff and equipment (Italy)
Who is eligible:
Young scientists, researchers, Ph.D. students and Early-stage researchers coming from Mediterranean and Black Sea countries
that are member of the Scientific Commission for Exploration in the Mediterranean Sea (CIESM). Grants will be awarded to
applicants from CIESM Southern Mediterranean countries. OGS encourages women candidates to apply. Selected candidates
will be granted fellowships covering their expenses for travel and accommodation.
Deadline for application
A Personal CV accompanied by a motivation letter should be sent before Friday 26 May 2017 at 17:00 to the attention of

Flagship FASTMIT Project:
FASTMIT (Lead scientist is Giuliana Rossi -OGS) aims to improve the knowledge and rationalize the available information on
the tectonic structures in Italy’s adjacent Seas, with a particular focus on four study areas (the N-Adriatic Sea, the Gulf of
Taranto, the Sicilian Channel, and the southern Tyrrhenian Sea). The expected results will significantly improve the basic
input for future seismic and tsunami hazard estimates at three distinct levels:
• for probabilistic seismic hazard and tsunami hazard assessment at national scale developed for building codes, land-use planning,
and other regulatory purposes;
• for assessments of the hazard and risk characterizing the Italian coastal areas - particularly critical for the high population density and
the concentration of facilities classified as “RIR” (Rischio di Incidente Rilevante; Italian for “at risk of significant accident”) in the recent
maps edited by ISPRA;
• for local estimates of hazard and risk associated with hydrocarbon extraction, either on-going or planned, both in national waters
(Adriatic Sea, Ionian Sea, Strait of Sicily) and in the waters of the central Mediterranean countries (Croatia, Greece, North Africa).
Ethics and Data property:
The OGS campaign adheres to the CIESM ethical principles on Marine Scientific Research which guarantee fair and rapid access of the data
acquired during the cruise to all parties. The data will remain OGS property and their use and publication will have to be authorized by OGS.
