Port Lockroy Assistant's shortlisting announcement deadline extended

Due to unprecedented interest in the Port Lockroy Assistant vacancies we have extended the deadline for contacting the successfully short-listed applicants from 16th March 2015 to 31st March 2015. As before, we are unable to contact unsuccessful candidates. We thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter and ask that you do not contact us to enquire on the progress of your application.

At final count we can confirm that we received 2264 complete applications for the four Port Lockroy positions. Eighty-three nationalities were represented in the 2063 applicants who included this information in their application. The largest proportion of applicants came from the UK (29%) and USA (12%), followed by France (7%) and Italy (5%). A significant number of Turkish, Polish, Dutch and Canadian (4%) applications were also received. Applications have been received from across the globe in smaller numbers, with most European countries represented as well as many in South and Central America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

We are grateful to everybody who applied and look forward to contacting the shortlisted candidates by the end of March.
