The Alaska Earthquake Center is hiring the position of Product Manager. This is a leadership position with primary responsibility for ensuring the integrity of the center’s data products, ranging from earthquake parameters and raw seismic waveforms, to metadata. The purview of the position includes the center’s quality control procedures and a lead role in the development and implementation of new products. This individual will be directly involved in the day-to-day activities of several people and, depending on qualifications, may lead a team of staff.

The Alaska Earthquake Center is part of the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The center’s mission spans monitoring, research, and public engagement. The Product Manager is expected to have involvements across all three mission areas, and maintain substantial internal and external communications. Close involvement with the research community and stakeholders is critical to understanding how the center’s products are used and what the center’s development priorities should be.

Alaska has long been a land of growth and opportunity. The unparalleled tectonics and landscape create countless science opportunities as well as hazards with a profound impact on society. We are seeking a career colleague who embraces this spirit and is drawn to the prospect of being part of a mission that matters.
