Hiring Process

Application Submission

For full consideration, applicants are encouraged to submit their applications online prior to the deadline. Applications are accepted until the position is filled.

The hiring process for ISE job positions is competitive. You may submit applications for as many positions for which you qualify, on all voyages of interest.

Application Review

Staff and faculty applications are reviewed by a committee comprised of ISE staff. Application review typically occurs 18-6 months prior to the voyage, depending on the position (ISE reserves the right to fill any position at any time).


Candidates for voyage positions are contacted for an interview by a representative of ISE. This interview may be conducted via phone or video conference.

All applicants will receive written notice once the position is filled.


The selection process can take several months and typically commences once the posting is closed.

ISE’s goal is to build a team for each voyage that will work to fulfill the mission of our program. Careful attention is given to how the staff and faculty members complement each other’s skills and abilities. For this reason, while a candidate may be qualified for the position, they may not be selected for that specific voyage.
