The ECORD Science Support and Advisory Committee (ESSAC) offers a unique opportunity for teachers and outreach specialists of ECORD countries to sail on IODP expeditions onboard the JOIDES Resolution and mission-specific platforms.
When a call for sailing as an Education/Outreach Officer is open, information is posted on Apply to sail. Interested candidates must follow the instructions detailed in the application and send their application to the ESSAC Office – firstname.lastname@example.org and to their IODP national office or ESSAC delegate.
Important: ECORD Education/Outreach Officers do not receive a stipend while at sea. However, ECORD or the ECORD national offices (if applicable) can provide support for travel expenses.
