III. Attachments
These documents must be submitted with this application:
1. Curriculum Vitae including publication history

2. If you are a graduate student, need a letter from your primary advisor, documenting the student's scientific experience and detailing how participation on the cruise would fit into their graduate degree program.

Allowed file types: doc,pdf
Note:
Staffing decisions are made through a joint consultation involving the nomination committee of J-DESC, the Chief scientists of the expedition, and the expedition science operator (implementing organization, IO). This process results an integrated science party chosen to fit scientific objectives of the expedition, balanced by national affiliation as defined in IODP's agreements. The expedition science operator has the final authority to issue invitations to the expedition party.

Eligibility as a Japanese participant is limited to scientists or engineers (professors, research scientists, technologists, graduate students, etc.) at a Japanese institution. Non-Japanese affiliated personnel from other IODP member countries should apply for IODP participation through their country's national program office.
