The International Continental Scientific Drilling Program, ICDP, invites scientists from upcoming scientific drilling projects in soft sediments to apply for the 2012 ICDP Training Course on Lake Drilling to be held from October 15-19, 2012 at Lake Ohrid (Macedonia). This training course will touch upon all relevant aspects of scientific drilling in lakes, including project planning and management, pre-site studies, drilling engineering, drill core handling and storage, on-site core analysis, downhole logging, data management, and post-drilling activities. The training course is recommended for master students, doctorate students and post-docs involved in scientific drilling.

Deadline for application is July 15, 2012 ; decisions will be communicated by end of July. Preference will be given to applicants involved in ICDP drilling projects, applicants from ICDP member countries, developing countries, and those from countries considering ICDP membership. For the successful candidates, costs including those for travelling, visa, and accommodation will be covered by the ICDP. Applications should include a letter of interest, CV, and at least two letters of support.
