USSSP management has changed. For more information on current opportunities within the new program, please visit: http://usoceandiscovery.org.
USSSP supports the participation of U.S.-affiliated scientists on expeditions aboard all three IODP platforms: the JOIDES Resolution, the Chikyu, and mission-specific platforms (MSP). Applications to sail undergo a rigorous review, and if selected, USSSP provides U.S. members of the science party with salary and travel support, as well as the opportunity for limited post-expedition research funding. Graduate students and early career researchers are encouraged to get involved.
For information on other currently scheduled IODP expeditions, please visit the IODP expeditions website.
