Recruiting Organization: Alnitak Research Institute

Co-funded and co-organised by MedNight and Alnitak, this is an assignment on board a historic research ship working in the World’s last great wilderness: the open sea ecosystem. Often out of sight of shore, with 2000 meters or more of water column below, the successful candidate would partake as a crew member in charge of documenting the daily life on board and ongoing scientific research conducted during the expedition, dissemination in media and social networks.

We are looking for a maximum of two students or graduates from any University located in countries of the Mediterranean basin to participate in the "Alnitak-Mednight International Volunteer Program'' aboard the Research Vessel Toftevaag during the month of May.

The placement is volunteer, but all expenses are fully funded (travel to and from the ship, lodging on the ship, three meals a day) with the exception of personal costs such as deciding to eat out.

The volunteer will cover one or two expeditions of 11 days traveling through the Alboran Sea. If joining both expeditions back-to-back, the volunteer can remain on board the ship, but will be expected to participate with the crew’s chores such as cleaning, laundry, and other tasks before the next group arrives.

The tasks on expeditions to be carried out by the Volunteer(s) will focus on communication tasks and specifically:

● Daily communication through the Mednight RRSS of day-to-day work on the ship, through images and videos uploaded to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

● Elaboration of one video for each expedition, of between three and five minutes, with audio quality and scripted. These will have a creative component which the volunteer is expected to bring to the table, but will also be guided and coordinated with MedNight and ALNITAK to ensure correct content and maximise its use as an important end product to communicate the research projects.

Dates: 6th - 16th May, 2023 and 20th - 30th May, 2023
