NEKTON – Two multi-beam technicians required for July cruise to Bermuda and Canada

Nekton are looking to recruit two multi-beam technicians for their exciting oceanographic expedition to Bermuda and Canada this summer. The ideal candidate would process raw bathymetric data in CARIS, HIPS and SIPS (software will be provided) and be confident in basic technical aspects of the equipment. Travel costs and insurance will be provided and there is an excellent opportunity to collaborate on with us this multidisciplinary project.

One ship will leave 14th July from Halifax Canada, with port calls in Bermuda in the last week of July and first week in August, returning to Halifax 16th August.
Ship 2, will be based entirely around Bermuda and will be conducting research from 20th July to 8th August.

If you are interested please send a short message stating your experience, availability, any research collaborations that you would want to pursue and ship preference, as well as your CV to
