Job description

The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) has an opening for a mid-career electrical engineer or electronics technician with experience in data acquisition and instrumentation design, preferably high accuracy aerosol, radiation, and meteorological measurements for research in climate monitoring. The position will be in the GML Radiation, Aerosol, and Cloud Division (GRAD) in the Global Monitoring Laboratory (GML) of NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratories in Boulder, Colorado. The successful candidate will work at the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at the University of Colorado at Boulder alongside federal and university employees engaged in research examining the climate forcing properties of aerosols and clouds at long-term U.S. and international sites as part of a GML monitoring network and in field campaign activities.

The successful candidate will provide engineering and electronics support for our long-term and short-term field observations. This includes managing data acquisition, programming of dataloggers and instrument firmware, building electronic data acquisition and process control boxes, assisting with the design and fabrication of new instrumentation, optimizing instrumentation setups to function in extreme conditions from tropical coastal sites to the South Pole, and assisting in field logistics and related technician activities. The successful candidate will also be required to repair and maintain existing electronic components and instrumentation used at GRAD field campaigns and long-term sites.

The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
