Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) is launching a new fellowship in memory of our late friend and colleague Professor Trevor Platt FRS.

For those of you who didn’t know Trevor, he was a British and Canadian biological oceanographer who was distinguished for his fundamental contributions to many aspects of oceanography and in recent years, to limnology as well. He was committed to the stewardship of the ocean and his research interests were broad. Trevor also had a passion for the development of early career researchers and for capacity building. 

To that end, Plymouth Marine Laboratory is creating a fellowship programme in Trevor’s name that will support one early career researcher (ECR) fellow every year to undertake a research project at PML, in any aspect of biological oceanography (fieldwork, earth observations, theoretical, ocean stewardship etc.).

The fellowship will provide a bursary of £15k to include travel, visa, accommodation and living expenses. The aim is to allow a visit of between four to six months depending on distance, living costs and science activity. It is expected the first fellowship will start in summer 2023.
