The Eurofleets+ Marine Internship Program will offer seagoing placements for students or technicians of marine related sciences and technologies on the Eurofleets+ partner research vessels, utilising spare berths. Placements can take place on dedicated research surveys being undertaken by vessels or during funded research cruises with PIs. The internships are intended primarily for marine oriented graduates, postgraduate students, early stage researchers and technicians. The programme will provide a great opportunity to gain offshore experience, develop new skills and learn on the job with established research scientists and research leaders.
Interns will not conduct their own research but will have the possibility to learn how an international cruise works and about operations onboard Eurofleets+ TA research surveys.
Research cruises were severely impacted in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid-19 pandemic, and are likely to be disrupted to some degree in the coming months or years. It is likely that shipboard placements will be made available at shorter notice than normal. In order to make best use of these opportunities, Eurofleets+ are launching an Open Call for applications from any early career scientists, technicians, postgraduate students (PhD or MSc) and Post-doctoral Fellows involved in marine sciences related work.
Eurofleets+ will maintain a database of all qualified, interested candidates and, as training opportunities become available, will create shortlists by evaluating suitability for the particular project on offer.
Please note that ship-time is funded through Eurofleets. All other expenses, including travel and accommodation, will be paid for by the participants.
Online application form available to access here.
Applications will be open until 31st March 2023
