Since 2002, the North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) has supported marine research in the Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, and Arctic Ocean ecosystems. With decisions made at this spring’s board meeting, the North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) has eclipsed $100 million in total funding for marine research off Alaska since its inception in 2002.
During the Spring NPRB Board Meeting, members reviewed nominations for seats on the Science Panel and Advisory Panel. After consideration of the individual applications, plus advice from the Science Panel and the NPRB Nominations Committee, the board appointed three new members to both Science and Advisory Panels. Several members from each panel were reappointed as well.
The North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) announces that current Executive Director, Denby Lloyd, has decided not to renew his contract which expires in October 2016. Over the next six months, the board will be seeking his successor. The Executive Director position is a senior-level position, and applicants should have at least 10-years of experience in research and/or organizational management with a minimum 5 years of program-level supervisory experience.
North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) and funding partners Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), the Collaborative Alaskan Arctic Studies Program (CAASP, formerly the North Slope Borough/Shell Baseline Studies Program), and Office of Naval Research Marine Mammal and Biology Program are pleased to announce funding decisions for the Arctic Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (IERP).
