Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics
Headquartered at UC Davis, the Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics (CIG) develops, supports, and disseminates community-accessible software for the international geodynamics research community. CIG software supports a variety of geodynamic research from mantle and core dynamics, to crustal and earthquake dynamics, to magma migration and seismology. Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), CIG is a community-governed organization that is committed to develop and maintain the geodynamics community through community participation across this research spectrum. Software developed is made available to the public under open-source software licenses.

We are hiring for 2 positions at CIG HQ @ UC Davis:

Community Manager @CIG
We seek a Community Manager (CM) with a background in the geosciences to develop and lead community engagement, education, and diversity initiatives for our community. The CM will work with our community to construct new online courses and cultivate and maintain communication channels.
