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

We are seeking applications from outstanding early career researchers to undertake a research project at PML in any aspect of biological oceanography (fieldwork, earth observations, theoretical, ocean stewardship etc..), following on the legacy of Trevor Platt. 

 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 fellowship will start in summer 2023 (June/July).
