Jobs in Australia

There are many jobs in Australia supporting Australia’s Antarctic program. The Antarctic Division’s objective is to support the Antarctic Treaty System, which governs Antarctica, and enhance our standing in it. To do this we need to have a crew of staff who are committed to sound environmental practices, robust policies, a strong voice in international forums and a well-informed community.

Jobs in Antarctica

Australia’s Antarctic program is science-driven, but science in Antarctica is not possible without people who recruit and train expeditioners, provision the stations, co-ordinate the shipping and air transport, and provide the infrastructure that allows people to live and work on the world’s coldest, driest, windiest and highest continent.

Current vacancies

Applications for the 2015–16 season will open shortly (with the exception of the role of Antarctic Medical Practitioner, which is open year-round). If you are interested in applying for the 2015–16 season please register your interest. You will be contacted by email when applications are open.

Please visit Jobs in Antarctica for more information.

(The Bureau of Meteorology also has employment opportunities in Antarctica.)
