Get Involved

There are many ways to be involved in supporting the work to better understand our oceans.

Interested in being a scientific collaborator or a partner site in the network?

Each site will be a regional catalyst for multi-institutional research, student training, citizen science, and public engagement, as well as serving as a gateway to parallel activities at other observatories around the globe. Understanding the strength and economy of scale in partnerships, the Smithsonian designed this initiative to build long-term strategic collaborations with scientists, existing research programs, government agencies, universities, NGOs, and national museums. Please email marinegeo@si.edu if you are potentially interested in collaborating or partnering and would like to know more.

Interested in fellowship and internship opportunities?

A number of competitive postdoctoral fellowships are awarded annually through the Smithsonian’s Office of Fellowship and Grants. Research internships are also available, schedule and funding permitting. Please email marinegeo@si.edu with inquiries regarding internships.
