community.  Details are below. Any questions please contact info at quixote

*Antarctica Guest Scientist Program*

Quixote Expeditions is excited to announce its 2020-2021 Guest Scientist
 program for our 2020-2021 season on trips to the
Antarctic Peninsula.

More information is on our website (http://www.quixote-expeditions.com/guest
-scientist/ <http://www.quixote-expeditions.com/guest-scientist/>)  and

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
active research. This can be anyone working on a master's or PhD thesis,
post-docs, 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 scientists to contribute the following:

- To involve the other guests onboard with the research and data
collecting if possible (Its not always possible!).

-  To present some of their current or past research while onboard.

-  At the end of the trip to prepare a short write up about the trip and
the science that will then be posted on the QuixoteExpeditions Website.

-  To help operate the vessel (standing watch, helping in the galley,
etc).  Ocean Tramp, while a large sailboat, is still small compared to a
larger research vessel. We ask that all scientists chip in, along with our

 We can offer free room and board to one scientist per trip. All other
related costs are at the expense of the scientists.  Please go to our
website for the application and full details  http://www.quixote-expedition
