The Pacific Northwest Seismic Network (PNSN) at the University of
Washington in Seattle has an outstanding opportunity for a ShakeAlert
User Engagement Facilitator to support the implementation of Earthquake
Early Warning (EEW) in the Pacific Northwest.

The PNSN monitors earthquakes in the states of Washington and Oregon for
public safety and scientific research.  EEW will save lives during, and
speed recovery after, damaging earthquakes in Washington and Oregon by
giving alert receivers from a few seconds to a couple of minutes of
warning so they can take protective actions before strong shaking hits
them. The ShakeAlert EEW project is a multi-million dollar effort that
is collaborative with the US Geological Survey, University of Oregon, UC
Berkeley and Caltech.

Under direction of the PNSN director, the Program Operations Specialist
will be responsible for establishing and maintaining relationships with
entities that receive and use warnings in Oregon and Washington. They
will also help plan and execute projects with the goal of disseminating
widespread public alerts. They will implement user engagement and
educational outreach projects in coordination with ShakeAlert partner
alert providers in Oregon and California. User engagement includes
providing educational outreach about EEW to groups with a variety of
technical knowledge, exploring how EEW can benefit the user, and
coordinating and catalyzing the development, implementation, and
documentation of pilot EEW projects.
