We are selecting three people across the different islands to offer them a six-month part-time contract to disseminate and carry out marine citizen science activities of the Observadores del Mar platform.

Observadores del Mar is the reference platform in marine citizen science. Coordinated by the CSIC, its mission is to promote marine citizen science through dialogue between the scientific community and society, as well as to generate scientific evidence to help decision-making on environmental problems affecting our ocean.

In the Balearic Islands, Observadores del Mar has established a strategic alliance with Marilles Foundation. As part of this alliance, there is currently one person from the Marilles team currently integrated in the general coordination team of the Observadores del Mar platform, who is also in charge of territorial dynamisation in the Balearic Islands. Those selected will report to the Balearic Islands coordinator.


What are we looking for?

We are looking for three people  passionate about the sea and its conservation (one in Menorca, one in Mallorca, and one in Ibiza or Formentera). Candidates must have internationally recognised certification in scuba diving to be able to do various activities in the water.
