The Alaska Earthquake Center is looking to hire a Seismic Data Analyst to join our team on the front lines of earthquake monitoring. The Earthquake Center’s mission is to advance Alaska’s resilience to earthquakes through monitoring, research, and public engagement. This position offers a flexible schedule, retirement and health insurance benefits, sick leave and vacation pay, tuition waivers for UAF courses, and a respectful, inclusive, and collaborative team environment.

About this position:
We track upwards of 100 earthquakes each day in Alaska. In this position you will learn how to assess and measure these earthquakes. The successful candidate must demonstrate ease and comfort in using computers, a passion for detail, an ability to execute repeated computer tasks, and a talent for spatial thinking. While a basic knowledge of earth sciences or earthquake monitoring is desirable, it is not required. On occasion, the position requires being on-call for 24/7 to respond to significant earthquakes. An interest in social media in a professional setting is an asset. Under-represented groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
The Earthquake Center is a mission-driven organization set within the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The university offers an attractive work environment and strong benefits including retirement and health insurance, generous leave policies, and tuition waivers for UAF courses. The Earthquake Center’s values emphasize employee flexibility, the open sharing of different perspectives, a respectful inclusive environment, and a commitment to serving Alaska and Alaskans with strong applied science. Career growth and professional development are expected and encouraged.
