The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation is offering five (5) training places, under two separate training programmes, in accordance with its exploration contracts for polymetallic sulphides and cobalt-rich ferromanganese crusts.

The two training programmes are as follows:


1.  Theoretical and At-Sea Training 2017 

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation under its contract with the International Seabed Authority, for the exploration for polymetallic sulphides, is offering two (2) training places for candidates from developing States. The training course is divided into two stages:

a) Part 1: theoretical course at St Petersburg State University (SPSU) for approximately two weeks in November 2017. The curriculum will include:

  • The basics of oceanology and marine ecology;
  • The basics of marine geology and geophysics;
  • Methods used for the prospecting and exploration of marine minerals;  and
  • Technical means and prospects for mining

(b) Part 2: at-sea training, a scientific cruise on board the R/V “PROFESSOR LAGACHEV” in the area of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Duration: six weeks, projected cruise date: November 2017 – January 2018

  • Trainees will participate in practical geological work.

In addition to the direct cost of training, the Contractor undertakes to cover the following costs: ♦ travel to and from Saint Petersburg; ♦ room and board in Saint Petersburg; ♦ travel to and from the research vessel’s port; ♦ room and board on the vessel during the scientific cruise.

Candidates must meet the following requirements:

  1. Education: education or work experience preferably in the field of marine geological research and technical engineering;
  2. Language: excellent knowledge of English is required, basic knowledge of Russian is desirable;

Applications should be submitted by email, in one of the official languages of the International Seabed Authority to training@isa.org.jm (link sends e-mail)  by the 24 August deadline.

Applications must be accompanied by:
a)    Application form (docx | pdf) to be completed by the applicant;
b)    Nomination form (docx | pdf) to be completed by the institution or governmental department;
c)    Copy of degree certificate;
d)    Proof of excellent knowledge of English/Russian;
e)    Proof of valid medical certificates which will attest to their fitness for the conditions of the at-sea training;
f)    Proof of insurance for the whole duration of training with coverage of no less than 30 000 euros.

One of the Voluntary Commitments made by the ISA at the UN Ocean Conference 2017 was “Enhancing the role of women in marine scientific research through capacity building” – we therefore strongly encourage suitably qualified females to apply for these training opportunities.

  • Geology and mineral resources of the international seabed area;
  • Mineral deposits of the international seabed area including cobalt-rich ferromanganese crusts; and
  • Methods and technology required in exploration for cobalt-rich ferromanganese crusts

(b) Part 2: at-sea training, a scientific cruise on board the Research Vessel “GELENDZHIK” in the Clarion-Clipperton Zone of the Pacific Ocean for approximately 60 days during October 2017. Trainees will participate in practical geological work.

In addition to the direct cost of training, the Contractor undertakes to cover costs: ♦ travel to and from Saint Petersburg; ♦ room and board in Saint Petersburg; ♦ travel to and from the research vessel’s port; ♦) room and board on the vessel during the scientific cruise.
