UNAVCO Data Products Manager Position Announcement
UNAVCO, a non-profit membership-governed consortium located in Boulder, Colorado, facilitates geoscience research and education using geodesy.
UNAVCO, Inc. is seeking a dedicated Data Products Manager to lead its efforts to develop and deliver high-quality data products to the science, hazards, and educational communities. A particular focus of the position will be the continual improvement of the access to, and the quality of, Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO) data products. The candidate will oversee and coordinate the work of the PBO Archives and Analysis Centers, including overseeing the necessary subawards, and will participate in designated UNAVCO and community mechanisms for coordinated development and evaluation of geophysics data products. Position responsibilities also include contributing to proposals for ongoing and new activities in a support or co-Principal Investigator role. All work will be carried out in close collaboration with UNAVCO's internal and external stakeholders in support of UNAVCO strategic objectives and community science goals.
The Data Products Manager supervises five engineering and staff members who provide support for data products operations for PBO and UNAVCO. Currently supported technologies include campaign and continuous GPS, borehole and laser strainmeters, borehole seismometers, tiltmeters and meteorological sensors. This position is based in Boulder with frequent travel per year to scientific conferences and other meetings. The successful candidate will have strong project management, technical, and people management skills and experience, together with understanding of investigator science research across the breadth of the geosciences.
For nearly three decades, UNAVCO has spearheaded the utilization of cutting-edge geodetic technology while providing robust operational support for researchers exploring tectonics (earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics), the deformation of ice, the Earth's response to ground water, sea level, and aspects of the hydrosphere, and atmosphere. Our instrumentation toolbox includes high-precision GPS, LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) for Airborne Laser Swath Mapping and Terrestrial Laser Scanning, InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar), and more. We host the NSF’s Geodesy Data Archive and provide cyberinfrastructure to support the full data life cycle and interoperability with national and international Earth science Data Centers.
Our long-term success depends on development of a forward-looking, diversified workforce that draws on and cultivates talent across the demographic spectrum of gender and ethnicity, across international boundaries, and across scientific disciplines.
