You might imagine long summer days on a ship studying sea ice and the animals that live under it, tagging birds so you can track their migration, or digging deep holes in a glacial snowpack to study snow crystals. But in reality, there are a lot of different jobs in the Polar Regions.
For example, the researchers studying onboard a ship in the Arctic may need someone to captain the ship, cook the food, design and maintain their scientific tools, or make videos of their research. In the Arctic and in Antarctica there are many types of scientists and many other types of careers.
