Ever wanted to dive in the Antarctic? Have you got a degree in marine biology? Then the British Antarctic Survey might have the job for you.
The British Antarctic Survey (BAS) is recruiting an experienced diver with a marine biology degree for a 19-month project to study soft sediment animal communites in the Antarctic.
The job will involve at least 18 months being based in BAS's Rothera Research Station. You would need to be at least a PADI divemaster or BSAC advanced diver.
A spokesman for BAS said: 'The post holder will be expected to play a role in planning, organisation, and implementation of this research programme but the post also requires supporting a diverse range of marine science projects, and base activities, at Rothera Research Station, particularly during the summer months.'
