Ocean Exploration Trust relies on contractors/freelancers to join our staff and ship’s crew to support our annual sea-going expeditions aboard E/V Nautilus. For our 2023 expedition scheduled to take place from mid-April through early-December, applications for at-sea contractors are now closed. Applications for the 2024 expedition will be open in the fall of 2023.
