The International Commission of the History of Oceanography (ICHO) invites applications for membership on the commission Council. ICHO is a global body devoted to linking scholars, writers, and teachers interested in the history of the marine sciences, broadly defined. We are a commission of the International Union of History and Philosophy of Science and Technology IUHPST/DHST.

We seek up to four new council members, at any career stage, to join the commission leadership.  As we are a global body, scholars from underrepresented groups, those who are from or who work in places outside the United States and Europe, and early career scholars, including graduate students, are especially encouraged to apply.

Council members will meet virtually approximately twice a year, participate in committee assignments, assist with membership drives, and help plan ICHO activities, including the 27th International Congress for the History of Science & Technology at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand in 2025. 

Potential applicants can contact our president, Helen Rozwadowski, with questions. To apply, please submit a letter outlining your scholarly interests and experiences that prepare you for a Council position, a c.v., and the names of two colleagues (peers are fine) whom we could contact as references. Send applications (ideally as one pdf document) to Review of applications will begin on May 15, 2022 and continue until available spaces are filled.
