Dear colleagues,

We are asking for your help in identifying outstanding candidates for  
a new Program Manager for the IRIS Program for Array Seismic Studies  
of the Continental Lithosphere (PASSCAL). Over the past 25 years,  
PASSCAL has become a cornerstone facility for the US academic Earth  
Science community and has helped stimulate a new era of seismological  
field experiments around the world. Jim Fowler, the current (and  
founding) PASSCAL Program Manager, was instrumental in making this  
happen and he plans to remain with IRIS in a support position as we  
transition to new leadership.

In the years to come, PASSCAL will need experienced, forward thinking  
leadership to help it continue its current activities while also  
working creatively to take the program into the future. This person  
will be instrumental in navigating issues such as identifying  
technological advances for next-generation portable instrumentation,  
developing solutions for evolving needs of the PASSCAL community,  
merging parts of USArray with PASSCAL core operations, and identifying  
funding to sustain and grow PASSCAL facilities and activities.

Finding this person won't be easy, and we ask for your help (yes,  
you!) in identifying and recruiting strong applicants. We are  
interested in applicants from a broad range of backgrounds, both  
within and external to the seismological community.

Please bring this exciting opportunity (see http://www.iris.edu/hq/employment 
) to the attention of candidates you see as the future leader for  
PASSCAL. The Chair and members of the Search Committee also welcome  
any comments or suggestions.

Thank you very much in advance for your efforts in helping us find the  
right person for this vital position.
