Job description: 

This position is located in the Southeast Alaska Network of the National Park Service Inventory and Monitoring Program. The Southeast Alaska Network supports Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve, Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, Sitka National Historical Park, and coastal portions of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve. These park units harbor an incredible diversity of ecosystems including environmental features of global significance, offering unparalleled opportunities for the study and stewardship of unique protected areas.

The Interdisciplinary (Ecologist/Physical Scientist), serving as the SEAN Environmental Scientist, will collaborate with network staff to implement component long-term monitoring efforts including, but not limited to, freshwater water quality, streamflow, climate, oceanographic conditions, glaciers, environmental contaminants, and wildlife for the network parks. The Environmental Scientist will have diverse responsibilities in support of these programs including leading the implementation of one or more monitoring programs that align with their area(s) of expertise. Duties will include logistical arrangement for field expeditions and sampling, leading field crews in remote wilderness settings, processing and analysis of monitoring data from automated weather stations and water quality or oceanographic sampling instruments, authoring routine

monitoring reports and other publications or outreach products, and delivering presentations to share program plans and findings with diverse audiences.

Much of the work of the SEAN occurs in rugged and inaccessible locations, requiring a steadfast commitment to safety and situational awareness. The Environmental Scientist will serve as the network's collateral-duty safety officer, supporting the development of safety plans and practices for each of the network's component monitoring programs.

Calling all programmers

Hi All,

The Juneau Chapter of the Alaska Developers Alliance (ADA) is going to start hosting its monthly meetings on the UAS campus. The ADA offers an opportunity to learn more about programming and interact with developers from around Alaska.  The January meeting is tomorrow (1/23) at 6:45 pm in Egan 108. The video meeting will be linked with the Fairbanks and Anchorage Chapters and there will be a video presentation by Kateryna Nesmyelova from New Zealand (title and description below). There will also be free pizza.

Title: Mindshift to CI/CD: The future is here

Description: Kate will talk about the shift you need to undertake - the shift in your skills, your attitude, but, first of all, the very way you think about the software - to catch up with the CI/CD pace - with a QA perspective

 

A brief description of the ADA is below and more information about the group can be found here: https://akdevalliance.com/

The Alaska Developers Alliance is an organization focused on bringing together all segments of technology in Alaska: from programmers, to industry, to academia. It was built as a community to get students plugged in; to provide continued learning opportunities for professionals; and to inspire, educate, and connect the community. All tech professionals, hobbyists, and enthusiasts are welcome to join. Member interests run the gamut from video game & VR development; to web & mobile development; to enterprise software & tooling; and more. The Alliance bridges the geography of Alaska with chapters in Juneau, Anchorage, and Fairbanks. It currently has over 200 members and regularly holds state-wide meetups and hackathons joining all three locations by live-streamed video calls.

Please pass this along to anyone that you know who may be interested that is not on this list. They are very keen to get UAS students involved in the group.

Thanks,

Eran
