Field Engineer

October 19th, 2018

The PNSN, in the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at the University of Washington, has an outstanding opportunity for a PNSN Field Engineer/Research Scientist Engineer to troubleshoot, repair, construct, install, test and maintain seismic instruments, data telemetry infrastructure, and networking systems. This position oversees, under supervision of PNSN management, the design, maintenance and upgrading of digital seismographs and related telemetry. We value the capacity to work independently with minimal direct supervision as well as a highly coordinated fashion within a collegial team, both in the lab and the field. The position involves coordinating with the USGS and scientific colleagues throughout the US to define and employ best practices, and to communicate PNSN innovations. Work sites will range from our electronics shop at the University to off campus locations in Washington and Oregon both indoors and outdoors. Although most work will be in the Puget Sound region, some overnight travel may be necessary.
