SOI accepting applications for the 2019 Student Opportunities Program
Hurry up... deadline is 28 December 2018.

Schmidt Ocean Institute seeks to provide undergraduate and graduate students with a chance to take part in seagoing scientific research aboard Falkor in coordination with its organization and the principal investigators leading at-sea research projects. Schmidt Ocean Institute aims to support technologically advanced research at sea and openly communicate the findings of our supported research cruises. The Student Opportunities Program enables them 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. SOI hopes that by offering indispensable ocean-going experience, participating students will gain invaluable skills at sea while working with advanced oceanographic tools and technologies.

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.). Interested students must be enrolled full time in an accredited institution seeking a college, baccalaureate, masters, or doctoral degree, or be serving in a post-graduate position. Time will be given to students to keep up with their studies while they are on board.
