Onboard Education Officer/Teacher at Sea

Want to sail on the JR?  Watch this space for the application period to open for several 2015 expeditions!

Any questions can be sent to scooper@oceanleadership.org.

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 events from the ship and development of classroom resources. All expenses for U.S. Education Officers for travel to and from the ports of call, and a stipend, are paid by IODP Education. Education Officers are selected through a competitive application and interview process. Successful applicants will also be flown to a 3-day group training session prior to their expedition.
