Sitka Sound Science Center (SSSC) Announces 2013/2014 Scientist in Residency Fellows
The Sitka Sound Science Center, through funding from the national Science Foundation, has established a Scientist in Residency Fellowship (SIRF) at the Center in Sitka. Each year fellowships will be awarded to preeminent marine scientists from across the country. The SIRF program brings scientists to Sitka for one month sabbaticals to allow them time to work undisturbed by their usual daily routine. The program will also provide community engagement opportunities for scientists to share their research and help improve public understanding of our marine ecosystems. This year's SIRF fellows are an impressive group of scientists from some of the nation's premier scientific establishments. They are: Dr. Jacqueline Grebmeier, Dr. Lee Cooper, Dr. Joe Roman and Dr. Joe Cook. To read the full press release on the announcement, click here.
