Greenland Summer Positions
CPS staffs two small camps in Greenland each summer. The season is considered to be mid-April to late August. Several full-summer and part-summer positions are available.
CPS requires prior experience working in polar regions/polar field camps OR a strong outdoor background working in cold climates/remote areas. Additionally, staff may be required to pass a National Science Foundation-mandated physical exam.

- Camp Managers
- Mechanics (Heavy/Facilities)
- Heavy Equipment Operators
- Science Technicians
