Welcome back! This week’s Round-Up introduces DOSI’s new Programme Officer, Dr. Christopher Barrio Froján. Then we cover the latest publications, including a possible solution to that “holes in the seafloor” mystery from last year. There are also new deep-sea mining publications and news items to review.

Job opportunities this week are especially interesting, with applications open for a physical scientist position at NOAA, a postdoc at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and a tenure-track position at Universidad de Concepción, Chile. Finally, scroll to the end of the newsletter for a bonus episode of the Deep-Sea Podcast on neurodiversity in science.
