Ever wondered what it's like to work in Antarctica? Now's your chance to find out.

Every Tuesday from 12pm-1pm we'll be running a live chat with someone with an interesting or unusual job as part of our "What I do" series.

First up, Antarctica New Zealand's Becky Goodsell - the woman who is running New Zealand's Scott Base over the winter - will be joining us from Antarctica from 12pm today to answer your questions about what it's like to live and work on the ice continent after its plunge into 24/7 darkness.

As well as being Scott Base's Winter Base Leader, Goodsell holds a PhD in Glaciology, is an advanced First Aider (PHEC), a Justice of the Peace and has spent two previous summers in Antarctica - one as part of a scientific project funded by Antarctica New Zealand studying on the McMurdo Ice Shelf, and one as a summer domestic.

Are there any other jobs you'd like to know more about? Email your suggestions here.
