The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS,

collection of high-quality geophysical data. We seek a Project Associate 
to help fulfill this mission, specifically relating to the portable 
seismographic instrumentation programs centered at the PASSCAL 
Instrument Center (passcal.nmt.edu).

The Project Associate will work closely with the Portable Program 
Manager to analyze scientific, technical, and logistical (scope, budget, 
scheduling) information for projects associated with the PASSCAL and 
Polar Program activities. The individual will organize the procurement 
of new equipment, work with seismological data and software tools on 
special tasks, present project data in formal reports and at various 
community workshops and meetings, and prepare and edit content for IRIS 
web pages. The Project Associate will routinely interact with scientists 
within the IRIS community as well as the staff at the PASSCAL Instrument 
Center. An important aspect of this position will be to develop and 
execute a Quality Assurance System for portable operations, interacting 
with other branches of IRIS Instrumentation and Data Services during 
this process. This position will provide a unique opportunity to broadly 
utilize scientific skills and knowledge to manage a wide range of 
activities associated with portable seismology.

The ideal candidate will have a combination of training and/or 
experience in: seismology, logistics management, seismological 
software/tools, basic web authoring, and scientific/technical writing. 
Familiarity with SEED metadata, data quality assessment, 
instrumentation, and basic field operations are vital. A graduate degree 
in geology, geophysics, or equivalent experience, and excellent verbal, 
written, and interpersonal skills are required. The candidate must be 
able to work effectively and collegially with the IRIS team and the 
broader earth science research community.

We offer a competitive salary and excellent benefits. Candidates should 
submit a letter of interest, resume highlighting pertinent work 
experience, and the names and contact information for at least two 
references. To apply, these should be sent electronically to hr at iris.edu 
with the subject line "Portable Project Associate".
