https://www.helsinki.fi/en/open-positions/coordinator-for-the-scientific-diving-academy?fbclid=IwAR3-AHuG5AwPPqgsgAMF89eUnCxpDWXxvbiAnW-B7h7Rn33h–f20dBRovE

Scientific diving is an integral part of many lines of marine research, including ecology, archaeology and many other areas of research. Nevertheless, formal training for scientific divers has not been organised in Finland for almost ten years. We will now re-establish scientific diving training in Finland by forming a scientific diving academy at the University of Helsinki, serving the larger scientific community in Finland as well as internationally.

The scientific diving academy will be based at Tvärminne zoological station (TZS), which is a marine field station serving as a centre for a large variety of high-quality marine research and offering facilities for field courses and seminars. It is also the field station hosting the most extensive scientific diving activities in Finland.

We are looking to appoint a

COORDINATOR FOR THE SCIENTIFIC DIVING ACADEMY

for a 3-year position starting 1.5.2021 or according to agreement.

The coordinator will be responsible for making the diving academy operational and developing an organisational and financial model for the long-term activities of the scientific academy to ensure sustainable, high-quality operations also after the end of the first 3-year period. This includes organizing dive training courses according to the Advanced European Scientific Diver (AESD) standard at TZS and serving as a teacher on the courses. The coordinator will work closely with an advisory group, which includes representatives of marine ecological and archeological sciences at the University of Helsinki, government research institutions, the Finnish Scientific Diving Steering Association (STOY-FSDSA) and the funding agencies.

We are looking for a person with a suitable university or applied degree in environmental sciences (e.g., marine ecology, geology, archaeology), or with another appropriate degree or corresponding experience. AESD certification (or equivalent), experience as a scientific dive instructor and extensive knowledge and first-hand experience of scientific diving projects is essential.

We value experience of aquatic research, navigational and boating skills, formal pedagogic training / experience of teaching and of producing teaching materials, skills in different diving methodologies (technical, surface-supplied, mixed gas, CCR etc.) and knowledge of diving medicine.

PhD in Archeology – Ship technology in the Iron Age and Viking Period

https://www.jobbnorge.no/en/available-jobs/job/199971/phd-in-archeology-ship-technology-in-the-iron-age-and-viking-period

The PhD-project will deliver important contributions to the research on boat and ship technology in the Iron Age and the Viking Period, and explore connections between maritime-technological innovations in Rogaland and geopolitical conditions. The project is a part of the research project «Maktens havn» (“Harbour of power”) (www.maktenshavn.no). The ships from the gravemounds Storhaug and Grønhaug make up a key material to understand the development of ship technology as a precondition for the Viking Period. Studying the ships together with other boat parts from wetland depositions and burial finds in Rogaland, allows for an investigation of the hypothesis that the region was an important hub for innovation in maritime technology. The regional dataset needs to be placed in an international context and be compared with boat finds from other regions in Norway and Northern Europe.

To increase knowledge of find categories that until now have not been subject to much research in Rogaland, the PhD-project should provide an overview of boat parts from the region. This comprises new documentation of boat parts as textual descriptions and by 3D-scanner, creating models for reconstructions, as well as dating boat parts. The work requires experience with research on archaeological boat parts and skills in performing 3D-documentation. Since existing documentation and contextual information exists in Norwegian only, the applicant must have a high command of Scandinavian languages.

ABPP Grants

https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=331361

The American Battlefield Protection Program supports the identification, research, evaluation, interpretation, and protection of historic battlefields and associated sites on a national, State, and local level. Under this new Funding Opportunity, grant funds will be awarded for projects that deploy technology to modernize and enhance battlefield interpretation and education at Revolutionary War, War of 1812, and Civil War battlefield sites eligible for assistance under the battlefield acquisition grant program established under 54 U.S.C. §308103(b). Grants require a non-Federal cost share of at least 50%. State, local, and tribal governments and nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply.

Successful projects should: include expertise in content, interpretive and educational methods, and integration of technology at all stages of the project; convene a project team with a diversity of perspectives and sources of knowledge (disciplinary, cultural, experiential, etc.) – to better understand and interpret the past, projects should not rely on a single subject matter expert; incorporate recent and high-quality scholarship on the historical, social, and/or natural contexts of battlefields and associated sites; undergo clear, collaborative, and comprehensive scoping with both subject matter specialists and technical specialists prior to technical production; use technology in ways that foster effective communication with the intended audience(s) – projects may combine multiple forms of technology or traditional interpretive media, and grants may fund stakeholder consultation and audience research to ensure that appropriate platforms and technologies are selected; ensure accessibility for people with disabilities (e.g. through subtitles and audio description of videos, or wheelchair-accessible exhibit areas), following Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act, as applicable (see https://www.ada.gov/cguide.htm); define appropriate metrics and strategies for evaluating the project’s effectiveness during and after implementation; and plan for technological and institutional sustainability.

To encourage a collaborative approach to project development and efficient use of Federal funds, two categories of grants are available for projects in different stages: Scoping grants are available to fund early stages of project development, such as research and content creation, consultation with stakeholders, exploration of available technologies, audience research, and development of technical proposals. The federal share for these grants should range from $20,000-$50,000 and have a period of performance of 1-2 years. Implementation grants are available to applicants who have completed interdisciplinary scoping prior to application and can provide draft content and design plans. The federal share for these grants should range from $50,000-$200,000 and have a period of performance of 2-3 years.

It is not necessary to receive a scoping grant before applying for an implementation grant, but the application must show that equivalent preparatory work has been completed. On a case-by-case basis, amounts and periods of performance may differ from the above recommendations. Applicants may contact the NPS American Battlefield Protection Program with questions about developing an application.

As the nation approaches the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence in 2026, NPS ABPP encourages projects that promote and expand preservation as well as enhance our understanding of the origins of the United States. Special thematic priority will be given to applications that preserve and interpret historic sites associated with the American Revolutionary War as a living part of community life and development.

Study of the corrosion mechanisms of steels corroded without and with cathodic protection on the site of metal wrecks sunk during the Second World War (HF)

Thousands of metal wrecks dating from the first two world conflicts lie along the French coast. These wrecks degrade under the effect of corrosion and collapse under the simultaneous effect of the increasing weight of the marine concretions and the reduction of the thicknesses of the structures by corrosion. The degradation of submerged metal wrecks has major consequences for cultural and historical heritage, since with their collapse a whole part of our history is erased. In addition, they can be the source of the release of polluting compounds and metals. The degradation of wrecks can therefore have dramatic consequences not only for heritage but also for the environment. To protect these wrecks and prevent them from disappearing completely, the project proposes to implement cathodic protection treatments on these wrecks. Cathodic protection is recognized as an effective method to protect steel from corrosion. Cathodic protection, commonly used in off-shore environments, in naval and port contexts, is well mastered for new materials launched. However, implementing it on submerged metal structures already colonized and covered with thick layers of corrosion products is a real scientific and technical challenge. To do this, the project has a twofold objective: on the one hand to gain a better understanding of the degradation mechanisms of wrecks, on the other hand to implement cathodic protection treatments on the wrecks. The specific methodology developed during the project consists of working on two wrecks located in two different environments: one in the English Channel and the other in the Mediterranean. These wrecks will be studied from the metal core to corrosion products and the links they develop with its environments close to the sedimentary layers to the characterization of biodiversity with or without cathodic protection. The first results obtained during on-site measurements of wrecks coupled with laboratory experiments concerning the electrical current requirements for cathodic protection have already been initiated. The characterization using a multi-scale approach for the study of the layers of corrosion products and the biodiversity on samples taken from the two wrecks (sheet metal from the wrecks, sediments, water) are in progress.
