Expressions of Interest Invited for the AIMS National Sea Simulator

I am delighted to announce the second call for applications to access the National Sea Simulator (SeaSim).

AIMS invites individuals and groups from industry and the marine research community to submit expressions of interest to work in SeaSim. Built in 2013 under the Australian Government’s Super Science Marine and Climate Initiative, SeaSim enables scalable, short- to long-term, multi-variate experiments, using finely-tuned process control technology.

The proposal form can be found here as well as a brochure that describes SeaSim’s capabilities, and details about the bench fees. Our guidelines for access for external users can be found here and the terms sheet for the collaborative research agreement that will be finalised between AIMS and successful applicants can be downloaded here.

For more detail on SeaSim capabilities and how to access them, I invite you to contact, either: SeaSim Operations Manager, Craig Humphrey ( or AIMS Research Program Leader, Data and Technology Innovation, Dr Lyndon Llewellyn (

The second round of applications close on Monday, 2 November 2015. I look forward to working with you.

Yours sincerely,

John Gunn
