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.
