The North Pacific Research Board seeks applications to fill three seats on its Advisory Panel. Two designated seats will represent the Gulf of Alaska Region and one designated seat will represent the North Pacific At-large. 

The deadline for receipt of nomination materials is Friday, March 31, 2023.

The mission of the North Pacific Research Board (NPRB) is to develop a comprehensive science program that will further 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 in the Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands, and Arctic and to inform sustainable fisheries management. NPRB Advisory Panel helps shape research and outreach programs, including identification of research priorities, program development, evaluation of communications and outreach, and review of 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. NPRB also covers travel expenses for panel members 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 should be committed to full and active participation for each meeting in their term;
  • Candidates will be considered for their experience, rather than political clout or connection; and
  • Candidates should be responsible and diligent in reporting on Board activities to their community, industry, or user group and facilitate engagement with relevant constituencies.

The deadline for receipt of nomination materials is Friday, March 31, 2023.

Nominations and self-nominations may be submitted by email to Matthew.Baker@nprb.org.

Nominations/Self-nominations must include:

  • A brief resume of not more than two pages;
  • Full contact information including phone number and email address; and
  • Up to three letters of references.

Nominees will be considered and appointed by the Board at its April 2023 meeting. The new Advisory Panel members will begin their three-year term in September 2023.  The Advisory Panel is scheduled to meet September 12-14, 2023 in Anchorage.

Please note:
In-person attendance and active participation at panel meetings is critical to NPRB’s success. Nominees and self‐nominees are asked to take a close look at their calendars to see if the typical Advisory Panel meeting schedule is compatible with theirs. The Advisory Panel typically meets the third week of April and the second or third week of September every year.

Conflict of Interest Policy. The Board and its panels follow conflict of interest procedures (available here) during the proposal selection process, requiring recusals and disclosures on individual proposals. Nominees and self‐nominees are strongly encouraged to review this policy.
