Later this year the MNF will take delivery of Investigator, a new state-of-the-art, research vessel capable of carry up to 40 scientists and support staff, on voyages that can last for 60 days, to destinations like Antarctica, the Southern, Indian and Pacific Oceans and up into the oceans near East Timor.

The delivery of Investigator to Hobart, Australia, means the MNF needs more support staff, some of whom will go to sea, while others will gladly stand and the wharf and wave others off.

Check out this recently produced video from onboard the MNF’s current research vessel, Southern Surveyor, showing some of the work that occurs onboard.

If you can see yourself as part of this team, then check out the multiple support positions then go to the CSIRO Careers portal

Applications and inquiries can ONLY be received via the CSIRO Careers portal.
