The Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS, 
www.iris.edu) is a university research consortium dedicated to refining 
the understanding of the Earth through the collection and distribution 
of seismographic data. IRIS programs, funded by the National Science 
Foundation, contribute to scholarly research, education, earthquake 
hazard mitigation, and the verification of a Comprehensive Test Ban 
Treaty. IRIS's Instrumentation Services and Education and Public 
Outreach Programs focus, respectively, on facilitating the collection of 
high-quality geophysical data and developing educational products and 
services for members of the IRIS community and the general public. We 
seek a Project Associate to help fulfill these missions.

The Project Associate will work closely with the Directors of 
Instrumentation Services and Education and Public Outreach, and other 
IRIS managers, to collect and assemble technical data for reporting, 
presentations, and related project management tasks. The successful 
applicant will manage the development, curation, and dissemination of 
IRIS-wide teaching and research training materials, including community 
contributed software and data, at the undergraduate through professional 
level. The individual will work with seismological data and software 
tools on special tasks, present project data, and prepare and edit 
content for IRIS web pages. The Project Associate will routinely 
interact with scientists within the IRIS community and be expected to 
regularly attend and participate in workshops and scientific 
conferences. This position will provide a unique opportunity to utilize 
scientific skills while participating in activities related to the 
management of large-scale seismological infrastructure and the 
development of educational materials.

The ideal candidate will have a combination of training and/or 
experience in: seismology, seismological software/tools, basic web 
authoring, and scientific/technical writing. Advanced computer skills 
are a necessity. Demonstrated experience as an undergraduate or 
graduate-level instructor or Teaching Assistant and/or undergraduate 
research mentor is highly valued. 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 and teaching communities.

We offer a competitive salary and excellent benefits. Candidates should 
submit a letter of interest (including salary requirement), resume 
highlighting pertinent work experience, and the names and contact 
information for at least two references. To apply, these should be sent
