JAMAICA, Kingston (5 June 2018) – – Global Sea Mineral Resources NV (GSR) is offering two (2) Offshore Internship opportunities to candidates from developing States in accordance with its contracts for exploration for polymetallic nodules signed with the Authority on 14 January 2013. 
The offshore internships will be organised and supervised by GSR and will be for a duration of four to six weeks in the two first quarters of 2019, in the GSR License Area within the Clarion‐Clipperton Zone.
One trainee will integrate into the GSR geological and geotechnical team in order to process polymetallic nodules and sediments under the supervision of the GSR geologists onboard the vessel. The other will work on topics covering the environmental and biological aspects of the 2019 offshore campaign, with the deployment and recovery of environmental moorings and the processing of biological samples as requested by the scientists.
The pre‐selected candidates will be required to successfully pass an emergency offshore training (BOSIET) and a medical test before final confirmation of their selection.

GSR will cover travel, accommodation and tuition costs during the entire period of the internship, including safety and medical trainings.

Applications should be submitted to, in one of the official languages of the International Seabed Authority using the manual forms on the training web page OR through the online training portal by the 28 June 2018 deadline.

Users applying through the online portal must remember to also upload a copy of the signed nomination form indicating preference for either the geological or environmental programme together with a passport photo, degree/certificate and résumé.

One of the Voluntary Commitments made by the ISA at the UN Ocean Conference 2017 was “Enhancing the role of women in marine scientific research through capacity building” – we therefore strongly encourage suitably qualified females to apply for these training opportunities.
