The NOAA Commissioned Officer Corps is the uniformed component of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The service consists of approximately 321 commissioned officers. A typical officer's career is spent in a broad variety of assignments that rotate between sea duty and shore stations. Assignments are not necessarily related to an officer’s academic field, but each will contribute to the officer’s development as a technically competent leader. NOAA Corps officers operate ships, fly aircraft, lead mobile field parties, conduct diving operations, manage research projects, and serve in staff positions throughout NOAA. If you are interested in a career that includes service, science, and adventure, you will find a unique opportunity in the NOAA Corps.
Selected candidates are commissioned as Ensigns and, after successful completion of the 4-5 month long Basic Officer Training Class (BOTC), are assigned to a NOAA survey or research ship for 2-3 years. There is a 12-15 month obligatory service period following completion of BOTC.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: August 8, 2017
