|The consortium is hosted by the Department of Earth Sciences at Durham University and the School of Ocean and Earth Science in Southampton at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton.
The majority of the marine geophysical research in both hosts is carried out in collaboration with colleagues in either host or in other universities, with industry or with charitable organizations, with substantial programmes funded by UK government, industry, EU sources as well as local councils.
Both hosts have a vibrant undergraduate and postgraduate student community and teach a number of Master in Science, Master of Science and Bachelor of Science degrees, all of which offer a broad-based approach to earth science education. All of our degrees are highly regarded by both employers and prospective students and attract a high quality of intake.
It is our intention to recruit a further Instrumentation Engineer in 2010, whose primary role will be to support sea-going data acquisition services, together with a Facility Manager, who will be responsible for the day-day management of all OBIC activities.
