Marine Technicians

The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) at Texas A&M University (TAMU) is planning to hire several full-time benefit eligible Marine Technicians (TAMU title: Research Associate) and/or temporary Marine Technicians (TAMU title: Program Aide). IODP Marine Technicians are required to sail on the Research Vessel JOIDES Resolution, which operates worldwide on two-month long scientific drilling expeditions. Employee shifts at sea are 12 hours a day, 7 days a week for each expedition. The work is physically demanding, requiring the ability to maintain balance on a moving ship, to carry objects (e.g., core sections) weighing up to 60 lbs., and to tolerate exposure to noise and dust. The employee must be able to pass a new employee seagoing physical exam and annual seagoing physical exams, and must be able to obtain and hold a passport and appropriate visas on a continuing basis.

Both positions require a Bachelor’s degree with two years of relevant experience or a Master’s degree.We will begin reviewing applications on September 28, 2018, but will continue to accept applications. Additional details concerning these position are given in TAMU’s online job site, please follow the links below.
