JOIDES Resolution Onboard Education/Outreach Officers sail on board the ship to share the science story with students, families, and the general public. They have the opportunity to learn shipboard science alongside the expedition’s science party and translate the exciting science happening on board through creation of blogs, videos, social networking sites, live ship-to-shore video events and development of educational resources. Successful applicants will be creative, flexible, friendly and hardworking. Some geoscience background is helpful. All expenses for U.S. Onboard Education/Outreach Officers for travel to and from the ports of call, and a stipend, are paid by the U.S. Science Support Program for IODP. Onboard Education/Outreach Officers are selected through a competitive application and interview process. The selected individual will also be flown to a 3-day training session prior to their expedition.
