These positions will primarily work on two exciting projects:

About Us.  Eagle Rock Analytics is a small scientific consulting firm located in Sacramento, CA.  Our focus is on translating complex, large environmental geospatial data (mainly weather and climate) into actionable metrics, tools and guidance for decision-making.  We perform scientific research differently – working hands-on with stakeholders and clients to ensure our results are as relevant as possible to client needs.  Historically our focus has been on the energy sector, but our goal is to support the public good broadly through applied research, and advance scientific knowledge and understanding of problems relevant to society.
