Our Jobs

The research expeditions during the summer of 2023 in Iceland will focus on conducting cultural and environmental field research for our upcoming publications and the development of a mobile web-app. Researchers will travel to Iceland for 8 days of field research and then spend 2-3 months working remotely, before and after the field research, synthesizing the information to be included in the books and mobile web-app. The ultimate goal of these publications and the web-app is to provide travelers with insight into the culture and natural world they will be traveling through. This will include information on the island's geography, geology, wildlife, plants, marine life, natural resources, hiking trails, economy, historic and current culture as well as tourism and its impacts. 

RESEARCH OBJECTIVE #1: ANTHOLOGY OF ICELAND E-BOOK

This will include topics such as tourism impacts, sustainability, geothermal energy, natural resources, geology, environmental topics, cultural norms, racism, gender roles, family dynamics, immigration, police culture, crime, photography, and other creative writing pieces. 

RESEARCH OBJECTIVE #2: TRAIL GUIDE / FIELD GUIDE MOBILE WEB-APP & E-BOOK

We are looking for research assistants to help us collect information on: GIS mapping, common plants and wildlife encountered on the trails, habitats and ecosystems, geography, geology, tourism impacts, Icelandic culture, myths and legends, cultural norms, travel and trail logistics, trail descriptions, photography, video production, travel blogging and other relevant information.
