The Alaska Earthquake Center is hiring a GNSS Specialist to serve as the Center's expert resource for geodetic field installations, data acquisition, archival, dissemination, and quality assurance. We seek an individual with expert knowledge of real-time GNSS data acquisition and field infrastructure. We especially seek applicants with diverse (broadly defined) backgrounds that are historically underrepresented in STEM fields.


The Alaska Earthquake Center is a cooperative environment where projects and operations are executed by well-empowered collaborative teams. The duties of the GNSS Specialist include geodetic field installations, data acquisition, archival, dissemination, and quality assurance, especially for real-time data streams. During the summer field season (May-October), this position will participate in field campaigns in remote conditions and will have extensive opportunities to travel to all regions of Alaska.


The Earthquake Center is a mission-driven organization set within the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The university offers an attractive work environment and strong benefits including retirement and health insurance, generous leave policies, and tuition waivers for UAF courses. The Earthquake Center’s values emphasize employee flexibility, the open sharing of different perspectives, a respectful inclusive environment, and a commitment to serving Alaska and Alaskans with strong applied science. Career growth and professional development are expected and encouraged.
