Applications are now open for two at-sea training opportunities for candidates from developing States members of the International Seabed Authority (ISA). The placements are provided by Marawa Research and Exploration Ltd (Kiribati), in accordance with its obligations under its exploration contract for polymetallic nodules with ISA.

ISA is calling for candidates with a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in oceanography, marine science, environmental science or equivalent. Successful candidates will demonstrate a good command English and an interest in marine geology or science (particularly the deep sea), the seafloor minerals industry and ocean sustainability. Offshore experience is a plus.

The offshore environmental campaign will be conducted in partnership with Nauru Ocean Resources Inc (NORI) in the Clarion-Clipperton Zone in the Pacific Ocean. It is expected to depart from the port of San Diego (USA) on 20 June 2021 for a duration of three weeks.
