Excellent Science in a fantastic beach setting with friendly and interested colleagues!  What more could you want?  Perhaps a chance to visit one of the World’s premier Bioluminescent Bays or the Rainforest!

Day by day, scientists face great challenges in carrying out their research. Traditionally, in order to fund their projects, scientists write research proposals to government agencies, where they are evaluated by other colleagues. The challenge is even greater for early career scientists, as they must compete with established scientists with vast experience. The picture is less encouraging if we consider that the budget problems threaten the "sequestration" of funds for science and technology.
