I received the following career opportunity announcement for a Polar Engineer from a former grad student at Oregon State University that I had the pleasure of working with. The window is short, so you have to move fast to get in on what sounds like a unique geomatics opportunity.
UNAVCO is seeking a Field Engineer to join the Polar Group. UNAVCO,
Inc is a non-profit, university-governed consortium that facilitates
geoscience research and education using geodesy. This position, based
in Boulder, CO, would focus on supporting geodetic projects in Polar
Polar Engineers are responsible for the successful development,
planning and evolution of polar geodetic project support for the
National Science Foundation Office of Polar Programs. This includes
review and implementation of Principal Investigator (PI) GPS and
Terrestrial LiDAR support requirements and workflow planning;
development and installation of integrated GPS, power and
communications technology for remote polar applications; oversight of
polar campaign equipment pool; planning and provisioning of field
support for technically and logistically complex projects; scheduling
equipment and sufficient work time to ensure the successful execution
of multiple project efforts.
This position requires field instrumentation operation in challenging environments, desktop processing of data collected from GPS, LiDAR and Small Uncrewed Aerial
Systems (sUAS) systems as well as day to day and project specific
equipment testing and management. Up to three and a half months travel
is required in direct support of Polar projects, including in Alaska,
Greenland, and Antarctica.
