BEIJING, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- China's polar exploration authorities are offering employment for domestic jobseekers in the form of logistical positions at the country's two Antarctic research facilities.

Eligible candidates must be Chinese nationals and meet the requirements specified in the job offers, according to a circular recently issued by the Chinese Arctic and Antarctic Administration (CAAA) under the State Oceanic Administration (SOA).

Prospective candidates can download application forms from the CAAA's official website, according to the CAAA circular. The positions being sought include a doctor/environmental officer, chef, electrician, plumber, carpenter and Internet engineer for each of the research stations.

The "Changcheng" (Great Wall) research station also needs three additional mechanics, while the "Zhongshan" (Yat-sen) research station needs 34 mechanics and an electrical engineer.

Applicants are allowed to apply for one position at a time. Those who pass the primary selection process will have to undergo medical checkups, psychological tests and outdoor training sessions, as well as exams designed to test applicants on specific job-related knowledge.

The positions at the Changcheng station will start in December 2012 and end in December of the following year, while the Zhongshan positions will last from November 2012 to April 2014. The government will cover related expenses such as insurance, visa fees and the cost of any domestic or overseas travel.

Recruits will receive subsidies during their stays at the research stations, with their original salaries and benefits remaining unchanged, according to the circular.
