Cultural resource managers, land managers, and archaeologists are often tasked with managing, interpreting, and reviewing archaeological assessments for submerged cultural resources. This seminar is designed to introduce non-specialists to issues specific to underwater archaeology. Participants will learn about different types of underwater cultural heritage (UCH) and some of the methods employed to help protect those sites. This seminar is not intended to teach participants how to do underwater archaeology, but instead will briefly introduce different investigative techniques and international best practices. The purpose of this seminar is to assist non-specialists in recognizing the potential for UCH resources in their areas of impact.

Safer decommissioning of offshore infrastructure and ships: establishing a global baseline – Research Fellow
Decommissioning of offshore infrastructure and ships represents a complex social, environmental and engineering challenge. The International Labour Organization (ILO) describes shipbreaking as one of “the most dangerous of occupations, with unacceptably high levels of fatalities, injuries and work-related disease” (ILO 2019). As increasing numbers of offshore structures and ships reach the end of their use lives across the globe there will be an uptick in demand for these services in a range of different economic and environmental settings. Quantifying the scale and nature of the challenge, however, is far from simple. This project recognises that this is as much a social as a technical challenge. It begins from the perspective that in order for informed decisions to be made, pertinent data must be publicly available and people cognoscente of it. How many structures and ships are there? How old are they? Where are they? What materials do they contain? What legislative contexts do they reside within? What economic models determine value and impact for decommissioning activities? Who is responsible for assets and why? Where are activities currently taking place? What impacts and incidents have been reported?
As a researcher on this project you will work with an international team to develop an online resource to help shed light on these issues. This will draw on your strong GIS skills and knowledge of marine datasets. Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent professional qualifications and experience in any of the following areas: Maritime Archaeology, Remote Sensing, GIS, Offshore Engineering, Naval Architecture. Given the breadth of this topic you might have a background in Archaeology, Anthropology, Geography, Engineering or other allied area of research.
This role is offered as part time (0.5FTE), fixed term until 10/03/2023.
Applications for Research Fellow positions will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification. The title of Research Fellow will be applied upon successful completion of the PhD. Prior to the qualification being awarded the title of Senior Research Assistant will be given.
The BEcoME (Benthic Ecosystem Mapping and Engagement) project of OFI (https://oceanfrontierinstitute.com/research/become) is seeking a post-doctoral fellow to work under the supervision of Dr. Claudio Aporta (Marine Affairs) and Dr. Patricia Manuel (School of Planning) in sub-project (WP 1.1): Engagement for Co-design of Benthic Ecosystem Mapping. The sub-project is a collaborative undertaking among the researchers and industry, community, and Indigenous organizations. Objectives are engagement for collaborative data sharing and interpretation in select case study locations; the co-production of visualizations of the benthic environments using technologically- and culturally-derived data; and the design of a framework to integrate data, information, and knowledge in a cross-cultural setting to support decision-making for marine resource stewardship.
The work contributes to the goal of BEcoME, which is to build a holistic understanding of the benthic ecosystem and its response to threats like climate change, to support decision-making for marine protection and resource stewardship. Activities of BEcoME focus on integrating and interpreting seafloor data collected using innovative mapping technology and contributed through local and Indigenous knowledge of the marine environment to visualize the benthic ecosystem at large and small scales.
Specifically, the role of the post-doctoral fellow will be to 1) build collaborations with industry, community and Indigenous organizations to co-design and implement data gathering and interpretation methods; 2) analyze qualitative data for integration into marine resource decision-making; 3) facilitate knowledge-sharing between industry partners, communities, and scientists about their use of bathymetric data sets, geomorphology maps and seafloor imagery as generated in the other BEcoME sub-projects; 4) disseminate results research outcomes in academic and professional forums as well as community-based initiatives; 5) advise on and lead knowledge-sharing initiatives; and 6) assist with ethics applications, report writing and grant development.
While the postdoctoral fellow will devote at least 75% of their time to the specific tasks of the Engagement for co-design of benthic ecosystem mapping project, they will also pursue their own program of research which is expected to build upon the work WP 1.1.

Ocean literacy is defined as understanding of human influence on the ocean and the ocean influence on humans. Ocean literacy is not only about increasing awareness on the state of the ocean, but it is about providing tools and approaches to transform ocean knowledge into actions to promote ocean sustainability. Ocean Literacy as concept and approach is radically evolving from being a tool to be applied in formal education and training contexts to a tool and an approach for society as a whole, aimed at triggering actions towards ocean sustainability. The UN General Assembly declared 2021-2030 the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, and the IOC of UNESCO has been tasked to coordinate its preparatory phase. In this context, Ocean Literacy is expected to play an important role.
