Opportunities: Data Management Specialist and Information Product Specialist, US IOOS
The US IOOS program is hiring two new federal positions. The advertisements are published on USAJobs (links below) and are open to both current federal employees and non-federal employees.
These two employees will be part of the Operations Division and will help set the course for IOOS activities focused on collecting, managing and distributing ocean information. The first position is a Data Management Specialist who will focus on technology and policy issues relevant to the Data Management and Communications subsystem of IOOS. The second position, a Products Specialist, will focus on connecting DMAC to users through product and tool development. The Product Specialist will document the requirements and needs for value added ocean information products and work closely with the DMAC data management specialist to devise strategies for technical implementation. Both positions will work closely with regional, NOAA, and interagency data management colleagues and will offer the opportunity to bolster project and program management skills selecting and guiding a portfolio of activities aimed at making the most out of ocean observations.
These are important positions for the IOOS office and we ask your help in advertising widely so that we can select from a deep pool of qualified applicants. There are two listings for each position. The primary differences between the two listings are that the MAP listing is for current federal employees while the DE listing is for people not currently employed by the government. However, there are some further nuances and we recommend that you read both position descriptions closely and contact workforce management with any questions. Please do not contact the IOOS office with questions.
