This is a job for Systems and Network Analyst/Programmer, something that I could do. It is for the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, based nearby. The hitch is that it requires approximately 5 months per year at sea with 2-3 month cruises.
I am afraid that I might be seasick. I don’t think I would like being away from home for two and three months at a time. I have never been on any boat for more than a few hours. My brother tells horror stories about fishing junkets where he was deathly sick the whole time.
I almost pressed the “apply for this job” button. It was tempting. I have read many a seafaring yarn and I would love to try it, but this is no yarn. I did apply for a similar landlubber job and if I were to get that job, I might just volunteer for a trip once I scoped things out.
