ANZIC is the Australian and New Zealand International Ocean Discovery Program Consortium, part of an international marine research collaboration harnessing state-of-the-art scientific ocean drilling to explore the Earth under the sea.

The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) is a 22-nation collaboration that advances the scientific understanding of the Earth and unifies the international research community to explore Earth’s last frontiers. 

Australia and New Zealand form the Australia-New Zealand IODP Consortium (ANZIC), through which our two nations can access all IODP activities including shipboard and post-cruise research, participation in planning committees and groups, and visits from outstanding scientific speakers.

ANZIC supports Early Career Researchers and opportunities exist for all Researchers (including PhD students) in all shipboard specialties—including, but not limited to, sedimentologists, micropaleontologists, paleomagnetists, petrologists, inorganic/organic geochemists, petrophysicists, microbiologists, and borehole geophysicists.
