NSO-GO grant awarded

Today it has been 5 years since I defended my PhD. I needed a friend to remind me of this, because it feels like it was a lifetime ago. I have since traveled the world, worked in some great places, met awesome people (you know who you are) and learned heaps. And yet it seems like it was only yesterday: I still feel like an 'Early Career Scientist'. But perhaps that's just me. 

On top of this being my 5-year PhD anniversary, I received the amazing news that I have been awarded an NSO-GO grant from the NWO. This grant is for 1 PhD student and will focus on sea-level change research using satellite observations. The student will be part of an international team, featuring co-supervisor Riccardo Riva (TU Delft), promotor Bert Vermeersen (NIOZ/TU Delft), Roderik van de Wal (IMAU), Jonathan Gregory (Univ. Reading) and John Church (UNSW).

A job ad for this position will go out in due course.. I'm looking forward to recruiting a new member for my research group here at NIOZ!
