Step 1- Review of Applications
Generally, staff applications are reviewed by a committee comprised of ISE staff and the Executive Dean of the voyage, while faculty positions are reviewed by ISE Staff and the Academic Dean of the voyage. The final hiring decision lies with the Executive Dean and the Academic Dean, respectively.
You may submit an application for as many positions as you qualify for. This will not hinder your chances of being selected.
Step 2- Interviews with Finalists
If you are selected as a finalist for a position, you will be contacted for a telephone interview by a representative of ISE.
If you are not selected for a voyage, once the position is filled, you will receive an email notification.
Step 3- Appointments Made
Generally, staff appointments are made eight to twelve months prior to sailing, while faculty appointments are made ten to eighteen months prior. However, ISE reserves the right to fill any position at any time. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
Competition for ISE positions can be very intense and we are often asked why one applicant is hired over another. Our aim is to build a team for each voyage that will work closely together to fulfill the mission of our program. Careful attention is given to how the staff and faculty members complement each other’s skills and personalities. For this reason, while you may be a qualified candidate, it may be difficult to be selected unless you have the flexibility to be considered for future voyages.
