PWS is seeking “Expressions of Interest” from suitably qualified people interested in being considered for volunteer biologist roles at Macquarie Island. Potential participants are requested to submit applications that address the selection criteria.
Up to two successful applicants will be selected to travel to Macquarie Island in November 2018 (timing dependent upon the Australian Antarctic Division shipping schedule).
The successful applicant/s will need to pass Australian Antarctic Division and PWS pre-deployment requirements (including physical and psychological testing), as well as undertake predeparture training that is mandatory for all expeditioners to Macquarie Island, before being confirmed as PWS volunteers.
Applications close on 24 August 2018.
