Onboard Education Officer/Teacher at Sea
Want to sail on the JR? Our spots for Education Officers on board the JR for 2012 - 2013 are now filled, but watch this space for upcoming announcements and opportunities.
JOIDES Resolution Education Officers have the opportunity to learn shipboard science alongside the expedition’s science party and translate their learning experiences for students, families and the general public through creation of blogs, videos, social networking sites, live video conferencing from the ship and classroom activities. All expenses for education officers for travel to and from the ports of call, and a stipend, are paid by Deep Earth Academy. Education officers are selected through a competitive application and interview process. Successful applicants will also be flown to a training session in Washington, DC prior to their expedition.
