Opportunities for Scientists


The IODP is a unique scientific endeavour. One of its most valuable aspects is that it presents opportunities for environmental scientists at all stages of their academic careers to be involved, from distinguished professors to students.


The NERC investment in UK IODP provides a diverse community of UK environmental scientists with exclusive access to cutting edge infrastructure that is used to collect samples and data from some of the most inaccessible environments on Earth. It allows UK scientists to engage with and lead the international IODP programme through participation, proposal, evaluation and leadership of IODP Expeditions. The entire archives of international scientific ocean drilling samples and data are also available for researchers to access.
