Website Joint Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research


Would you like to be an integral part of monitoring tropical coral reef ecosystems and studying climate change in action? Does working with data and how it is gathered, stored, archived, and shared appeal to you? If so, the Joint Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research (JIMAR) is recruiting for two data management positions within the NOAA/PIFSC Ecosystems Sciences Division based in Honolulu, HI.  Both positions will be with our Data Services Team and their primary duties will involve the entire gamut of data management tasks, from working with enterprise database systems and creating tools that enter and provide access to data in those databases, to properly storing and archiving that data so it is accessible to all coral reef researchers. This position also includes the likelihood of participating in a research cruise in the tropical pacific for approximately 1 month per year to support our division’s data collection and community outreach efforts.

The positions (one senior requiring 3-5 years of experience, one entry level requiring 1-3 years of experience) are open for individuals who have a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer, Biological, Physical, or Library Sciences and have a desire to work with the maintenance of our data and the creation of tools to better assist scientists to interact with that data. Having a Bachelor’s Degree may not be an insurmountable obstacle for an individual that is otherwise highly skilled.

DEADLINE: Please note the deadline to apply is December 9, 2020.
