MARMAM Community - we at Quixote Expeditions have an excellent opportunity
for scientists with projects in Antarctica!  We are now accepting
applications for our January 16 - February 6th 2016 Trip to the Antarctic
Peninsula.

Quixote Expeditions has a Guest Scientist Program where scientists can join
any of our regularly scheduled trips in order to help them carry out their
research.  This can  be anyone working on a master’s of PhD thesis,
professors and researchers at universities, and scientists associated with
non-profits.  We offer a free space onboard any of our scheduled trips for
scientists to perform their research.  We sail in remote places that are
often hard for scientists to get to and for those with limited funding,
impossible due to the expensive nature of working in remote areas.  We hope
that by offering these spaces – one per trip, that amazing and interesting
science can be continued here at the end of the world.

In exchange we ask that the scientist try to involve the other guests
onboard with the research and data collecting if possible (its not always
possible!).  We also want to know more about your interesting research and
ask that scientists present some of the current or past research while
onboard.

For those interested, please go to our website
http://www.syquijote.com/science/ and look for guest scientist info.  You
can also contact us at info at syquijote.com

NOTE: Applications for the January 16- Feb 6th 2016 Antarctica Trip are due
March 15th 2015.  Applicants  will be notified by April 1, 2015.  For
Antarctic expeditions scientists will be required to obtain their own
permits for their research from their respective national authorities.

We can offer free room and board to one scientists per trip.  All other
related costs are at the expense of the scientists.  If your project
potentially spans more than one trip, please apply for multiple trips on
the application form.
