US GO-SHIP 2024 A13.5 Co-Chief Scientist Opportunity (deadline 8/21/23)

Alison MacdonaldA13.5, Cruises, Opportunity Closed


We are looking for scientists and or technicians with experience in physical or chemical oceanography (hydrography) who would be interested in participating as co-Chief Scientist on the decadal re-occupation of the U.S. GO-SHIP meridional hydrographic line known as A13.5 (0°E in the Atlantic Ocean). This expedition is ~2 months long (Praia, Cape Verde to Cape Town,  South Africa,  January to March 2024). No at-sea experience is necessary, although it can be a plus. The Chief Scientist will provide training and mentoring onboard. As the co-Chief Scientist experience is a stepping stone to future opportunities to sail as Chief Scientist preferred candidates are early career, but technicians with equivalent experience are also encouraged to apply.

Further details on the cruise and application (Due August 21, 2023) can be found here.
