The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences is seeking a motivated Research Technician to assist with the operation of the NSF-funded BIOS Tudor Hill Marine Atmospheric Observatory and various other environmental monitoring projects.
The main duties of the technician will include: 1) Maintenance and operation of atmospheric sampling equipment and field site facilities; 2) Preparation and shipping of samples; 3) Data analysis and management. Other duties will be assigned by the Principal Investigator as needed. The successful applicant will be required to acquire Bermuda scooter and/or light truck driving licenses.
The Tudor Hill Marine Atmospheric Observatory hosts a range of dynamic and varied research programs that often function in response to operational needs at short notice. The ideal candidate will therefore need to be flexible, reliable, and conscientious, possess good personal organization skills, and be able to often work independently. Some physical activity, including servicing instrumentation on a 23 m walk-up tower and lifting heavy loads, is required.
Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree in one of the physical sciences. Some experience in any of the following would be an advantage: Air pollution and atmospheric chemistry; Instrumental analysis and/or electronics, including troubleshooting and maintenance; Data analysis and coding/programming (particularly using Campbell Scientific loggers); General maintenance, and use of power tools.
The position will initially be for up to 2 years, with continuation dependent on extension of project funding and on job performance. The starting salary will be in the range of $38,000 to $47,000, commensurate with experience and qualifications. Subsidized housing is available at BIOS. Given the restrictions on sponsored dependents residing in Bermuda set by the Bermuda Department of Immigration, all applicants are recommended to review Section 5 of the Bermuda Work Permit Policy
