WATC was created to recognize the accomplishments and growing stature of nuclear treaty monitoring support programs at the UAF Geophysical Institute. WATC is an externally funded organization and critical component of the Geophysical Detection of Nuclear Proliferation University Affiliated Research Center (UARC), which was established for research, development, testing, evaluation, and use of scientific and technological capabilities to better sense, locate, characterize, and assess the threat potential of nuclear activities worldwide. The WATC leadership supports access to training and education opportunities to close any skill or experience gap upon employment. As an organization, the WATC encourages all its team members to continually develop professionally and foster a positive work environment. While these positions will be physically located at the UAF campus, WATC has recently embraced a hybrid work model.
