“I want us to eventually be a strong network of peers and leaders in our fields. I want our reputation to be that we lift each other up (and all people, regardless of if they're DDCSP alums or not), always have each other's backs and we're all really good at what we do." ~Dyaami D'Orazio DDCSP UW Alumni

It’s almost a given that during your job search you’ll be googled. But that doesn't have to be a bad thing. Join Luz Alejos, DDCSP Alumni Network’s Digital Community Engagement Manager for a conversation on finding agency and ownership of what we put out there in the web. From Instagram to LinkedIn, how can our digital footprint help us connect with communities and career opportunities that we care about? We will also leave plenty of time to discuss the ethics of digital branding and other questions and thoughts you may have.

February 16, 11:00 am EST - February 21, 11:00 am EST

The Ocean Sciences Meeting (OSM) is the flagship conference for the ocean sciences and the larger ocean-connected community.  As we approach the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, beginning in 2021, it is increasingly important to gather as a scientific community to raise awareness of the truly global dimension of the ocean, address environmental challenges, and set forth on a path towards a resilient planet. 

From Our Blog

I am recruiting for a graduate student (PhD/Masters) in ocean and coastal governance at the University of Southern Mississippi's Gulf Coast Research Lab beginning in the Fall of 2020. The student will be fully funded as a Research Assistant (4 years for PhD, 2 years for Masters).
