OET is committed to including, amplifying, and making space for more Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native Hawaiian, LGBTQIA+, and historically marginalized voices in the deep sea and STEM communities. We continue the important work to diversify our team, staff, trustees, and education programs both aboard E/V Nautilus and behind the scenes, so more people can build their careers in STEM and see their experiences reflected in the important work of exploring the ocean planet.
The Ocean Exploration Trust welcomes a diverse pool of applicants and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious creed, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, ancestry, age, or handicap. We warmly encourage candidates from historically and currently underrepresented and underserved populations in STEM to apply for opportunities. Learn more about hiring openings for at-sea expedition contracts and full-time roles on our Employment Opportunities page and learn about joining us on an expedition through our Scientist Ashore Program or at sea through the Science & Engineering Internship Program or Science Communication Fellowship.
