Call for Proposals

Establishing the Special Bureau for Loading (SBL)
in the Global Geophysical Fluids Center (GGFC),
International Earth Rotation Service (IERS)

Under the direction of its Directing Board, the IERS Central Bureau is
releasing this Call for Proposal, whose purpose is to establish a new
Special Bureau for Loading (SBL) in the IERS Global Geophysical Fluids
Center (GGFC). What is solicited is the "willingness, readiness, and
capability" that will take the leadership role in this effort and the
ensuing service functions and operations. The lead proposer, under
his/her organizational/institutional support, is expected to become the
Head of the new SBL, joining GGFC and working very closely with the
existing seven other Special Bureaus (SBs). Note that IERS itself
assumes no direct financial responsibility.

The complete text of the call with detailed information on objectives,
guidelines, deadline for submission, and background information about
IERS GGFC can be found at   (PDF document) or   (WORD document)
