Be a Scientist in Residence THIS Summer!

We are inviting applications for Scientists in Residence for project Ocean Awareness voyages aboard our tall ship Pelican of London this summer!

With our project Ocean Awareness, we introduce ocean science into our sail training voyages. For the Scientist in Resistance, this is a unique opportunity to young scientists to hone their practical marine science skills, collect data for their research project, gain experience with outreach activities, while sailing on the sail training vessel and tall ship Pelican of London.

Ocean Awareness aims to open the minds and all senses of voyage crew for the ocean environment alongside their sail training. A Scientist in Residence (SiR) will undertake observations during the voyage, collecting high quality data, which may be for their own research interests, conservation organisations and/or to add to the SYF Ocean Science Data Base.

Ocean Awareness voyages will take place on a number of dates between mid-May and late July 2022 and will be around 7 days in duration. The initial two days will be occupied by initial sail training and health and safety, leaving the remaining days for science projects to be carried out in sea areas around the British Isles and Ireland. There may be an opportunity to undertake work while on anchor or on a beach, but for the majority of time, Pelican will be underway.
