Seamester Programs (www.seamester.com <http://www.seamester.com/>) is looking for an enthusiastic, self-motivated marine science instructor to work with their study abroad program aboard the school ship S/Y Ocean Star or S/Y Argo starting in June 2019.

The successful candidate will play an active role in the day-to-day operation of our program and lead the instruction for either the Introductory Marine Biology or Introductory Oceanography course.  He/she is expected to foster an exciting experiential learning environment for the students on board, with appropriate field sampling and experiments.  The instructor should be creative and flexible in his/her approach to teaching and incorporate program activities and experiences into the course structure. 


The successful candidate will be adaptable and willing to work in the ever-changing conditions—with sometimes difficult weather conditions—that are characteristic of life at sea.  He/she should be enthusiastic about traveling to various locales and working with different cultures and languages.

Compensation is dependent on experience.  Room and board, travel expenses and health insurance are provided.  We are looking for somebody who can commit for the Summer of 2019 , from early June to late August.
