I had been waiting to apply for this program since 2010. I first learned about the opportunity when I was attending a similar course at the Hopkins Marine Station, Pacific Grove, California in the summer of 2009 but it wasn’t until near the end of my Ph.D. that I had a chance to apply. Better late than never!
Now to prepare as much as I can before I head south for the winter! (July is winter in Antarctica!).
