Well, this may or may not be of any use to you all, but I’ve done a lot of work on my website. I’ve added a feature that grabs the 25 most recent job listings in Centennial – which should be mostly Antarctica related jobs. Use it if you’d like.July 19, 2011 at 2:38 pm #11060
Well, that’s cool, Will.
I envy you techno savvy people.July 25, 2011 at 9:33 pm #11061
I’m not sure, but my two best guesses would be the solar person at the MEC that sets up all the field camp stuff. I bet you would be a wiz at that. You have to size the wires to the current. After that its all a couple of interfaces.
That or the new windmills need somebody to help manage them.September 5, 2011 at 9:30 pm #11062
I am medical technologist and want to do the deep freeze for a bit. Have worked in barrow and kotzebue in the arctic as well as kwajalein so I have bit of an idea altho Kwajalein was country club compared to the arctic. I know there is a new contractor forthcoming. I do know a physician who I have worked with in MT who thinks I would be the ideal candidate for a position in the medical lab there. Ant suggestions on resume or point of contact.
Will be avail early dec after a trip to SE Asia or I can wait til 2012.September 6, 2011 at 6:22 am #11063
Yellow, Unless they are severely hurting for a lab person, it is probably a bit late to be applying for this year. Go ahead and see if the job is showing up on the raytheon website. The winfly season has started and most of us will be heading downin the next 4 weeks or so. That doesn’t give a lot of time for you to apply and get your medical evaluations done. Though, it happens every year somebody drops at the last minute and they end up hiring the next person that can get medically screened quickly.
After this year it will be a new contractor and nobody knows what the hiring procedures will be.

They already have a med tech coming in during the first week of Mainbody, that’s what I was told by people I know in medical. So your best bet would be try for the 2012-2013 season with the new contractor. Good Luck!September 6, 2011 at 7:19 pm #11065
Thanks for the info. I will apply for next year.September 7, 2011 at 2:52 pm #11066
I’ll add that med tech might be a hard job to get. There is only one position and if the person comes back you won’t have a chance. In the meantime if you have any other skills, try applying for different jobs. If you get one and come down, let medical know you are a lab tech and can fill in if needed. Also, join the medical MCI team. At the very least you can get your name out there.

I’ll patiently wait til 2012 to apply. Am ex navy corpsman as well but that was a few years ago. Be an adventure for sure. I use to chase solar eclipses, former ham radio operator, and going to Borneo in nov to see if there is a rafflesia. Used to 24 hr darkness when I was in barrow/kotzebue and 24 daylite. Astronomy on the wane but keep foot in the door. Be interesting to find out types of lab equipment they have there and the kind(s) of testing they do.

I met Ron in Denver a few years ago. Wonder what he’s doing now?September 8, 2011 at 2:37 pm #11070
I also knew Ron. I don’t think he is actively involoved in the program any more. At least not where any of us would see him. He may do consults.September 8, 2011 at 5:48 pm #11071
Ron is a contract dr here in north central MT. He’ll be happy to know there are people there who still remember him. I think he is on tonight, I’ll tell him.September 10, 2011 at 2:25 am #11072
Told Ron Shemenski md there were people that still remember him. He says to tell everyone hi. He was on ER duty this eveningSeptember 10, 2011 at 2:42 am #11073
