Schmidt Ocean Institute is pleased to announce our call for the 2018 Student Opportunities program.
Schmidt Ocean Institute seeks to provide college, undergraduate, and graduate students with a chance to take part in seagoing scientific research aboard Falkor in coordination with our organization and the principal investigators leading at-sea research projects. The Student Opportunities Program enables us to support training of the next generation of ocean scientists and technology developers and ignite the spark of passion for ocean exploration in their minds. Student berthing space may be made available if a science party has unused berthing. Students will work alongside a science team already scheduled to conduct research aboard Falkor. Applicants should possess knowledge in at least one of the following disciplines: biology, chemistry, physics, geology, oceanography, or marine technology (e.g. engineering, software, etc.).
The application is now available online, all submissions including supplemental information must be received by end of day Friday December 29, 2017. You can view frequently asked questions here and previous Student Opportunities participants here.
Please pass this on to anyone who might be interested.
