Seeking Nominations for Advisory Panel Seats for Bering Sea and Arctic Regions

Seeking Nominations for Advisory Panel Seats for Bering Sea and Arctic Regions

The North Pacific Research Board seeks applications to fill two seats on its Advisory Panel. One designated seat will represent the Arctic Region and one designated seat will represent the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Region. 

The deadline for receipt of application materials is Wednesday, March 1, 2023.

The mission of the North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) is to develop a comprehensive science program that will further our understanding of the North Pacific, Bering Sea, and Arctic Ocean ecosystems, inform effective management of fisheries, and help to sustain and enhance marine resources.

The NPRB Advisory Panel represents stakeholders, user groups, Alaska Native communities, and other interested groups and communities from the Pacific Arctic, Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands, and Gulf of Alaska. The NPRB Advisory Panel advises the Board in achieving its overall mission to improve understanding of marine ecosystems and to inform sustainable fisheries management. NPRB Advisory Panel input shapes research and outreach programs, including identifying research priorities, advising programmatic development, evaluating communications and outreach efforts, and reviewing proposals received by the Board.

The Board is committed to incorporating meaningful community involvement throughout its science program, from planning to oversight and review. The Advisory Panel has a significant advice-giving role, with active involvement in defining research questions and highlighting proposals with stakeholder relevance. To this end, nominations are sought from individuals with practical knowledge and experience specific to one or more of the large marine ecosystems in Alaska.

For more information, please refer to: https://nprb.org/nprb-leadership/

Appointments are for three-year terms, with a maximum of two consecutive terms.

The Advisory Panel meets twice each year for 2-3 days in Anchorage (April and September). While no pay is provided, the Board covers all expenses for travel, food, and lodging for non-federal panel members to attend panel meetings, and to attend the Alaska Marine Science Symposium, held in January each year in Anchorage.

The Board will consider the following attributes when making appointments to the Advisory Panel:

  • Candidates should be active, involved members of their community and/or industry to ensure the best and most relevant input into the Board.
  • Candidates should have a demonstrated ability to be objective in considering research activities and science planning.

  • Candidates will be considered for their experience, rather than political clout or connection.
  • Candidates should be responsible and diligent in reporting on Board activities to their communities and facilitating engagement.
