From: Mike Lisowski <mlisowski at usgs.gov>


The USGS Cascades Volcano Observatory (located in Vancouver, Washington 
(USA)) is seeking to fill a field engineer position at the GS 11/12 level. 

The primary purpose of this position is to provide expertise and support 
for the data-telemetered monitoring programs at Cascades volcanoes and at 
foreign volcanoes. Duties include: installing and maintaining seismic and 
other geophysical equipment needed for monitoring volcanoes in the 
Cascades, the Mariana Islands, and at foreign sites; installing and 
maintaining radio (analog and digital), microwave, satellite, and 
internet-based telemetry systems; developing, designing, and maintaining 
PC-based computer systems for data acquisition and analysis; and writing 
programs in BASIC, FORTRAN, C, MATLAB, and/or JAVA for collecting, 
viewing, and processing telemetered data associated with the monitoring 
and study of volcanic processes. The incumbent will need to be comfortable 

working in remote and often harsh conditions that are typically found in 
volcanic environments. Applicants with experience in installing and 
maintaining networks of geophysical instruments in remote environments 
with associated analog and digital telemetry systems for transmitting data 

to processing centers in real-time are particularly encouraged to apply.

without further competition. You must be a U.S. citizen to be eligible for 

this position.
