This person will work with AVO staff to develop and implement software to improve volcano monitoring and research. Tools developed will analyze real-time data streams collected from instruments deployed on-site and/or remotely viewing volcanoes distributed throughout the state of Alaska. In this role, you will need to consult with AVO researchers and staff to develop, test, and deploy software; troubleshoot operational systems; and collaborate with the AVO IT staff to scope and manage a variety of software development, database, and IT projects.
