Job Requisition Number: 23602. Standing nearly on top of the Hayward Fault, the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory (BSL) provides robust hazard information while engaging in essential geophysical research. Throughout the BSL's long history of innovation (described below), beginning with the 1897 installation of the first seismograph in the western hemisphere, our commitment to probing the Earth's deepest secrets has remained unchanged.
The BSL, in collaboration with the US Geological Survey in Menlo Park, operates seismic networks throughout northern California that provide rapid earthquake information to the state, emergency response organizations, and the public. The BSL and USGS/MP have designed, developed, and operate the Northern California Seismic System (NCSS) of the California Integrated Seismic Network (CISN) and the Northern California Earthquake Data Center (NCEDC). The CISN is a member of the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS). The NCSS provides rapid earthquake information to the state, emergency response organizations, and the public, and the NCEDC provides the long-term data archiving and distribution systems for these data, which represent, more than 100 Terabytes of stored data, and related geophysical data, such as strain and seismic data from EarthScope SAFOD, and strain data from EarthScope PBO (NSF funded major research equipment projects). The NCEDC archives and distributes earthquake catalogs and parameters, continuous and campaign GPS data; current holdings exceed 100 Tbytes of waveform data which are used by researcher all over the world. The BSL also contributes to the operation and development of the West Coast ShakeAlert Earthquake Early Warning System (EEW).
The BSL Applications Programming Manager oversees and contributes to the design, planning, implementation and operations of the software systems that process and archive real-time earthquake information and data. The incumbent participates in the design and planning of the long range goals of the BSL geophysical networks, and the associated real time telemetry system, the NCSS, NCEDC, and the CISN. The work involves writing programs in a computer language, designing related databases, web interfaces and content, or multimedia processes. The incumbent designs, develops, modifies, tests and evaluates and maintains computer programs. Work includes test-to-production processes, quality assurance, maintenance and documentation of applications, and may also include web applications programming. The Applications Programming Manager supervises internal programming staff working on the BSL projects related to earthquake monitoring, and data center operations. The incumbent also serves on and heads extra-university committees for planning, formulating and implementing standards and activities for the CISN, the ANSS and the ShakeAlert EEW system.Knowledge/Skills: ?Requires knowledge of applications programming function and organizational effectiveness. ?Must have knowledge of campus and system protocols and procedures for budget and account management. ?Highly developed skills in critical thinking, persuasion/negotiation, conflict resolution, mentoring and staff development, leadership/management, problem solving. ?Familiar with human resources policies and procedures relating to management responsibilities. ?Verbal and written communication, quantitative abilities, analytical, strong mechanical applications programming systems skills. ?Requires in-depth knowledge of IP networking, ?Ability to manage multiple projects simultaneously. ?Strong working background in C, C++, Perl, shell scripting, html, python. ?Experience and success in managing and supervising several employees or a team. Education/Training: ?Bachelor's degree in related area and/or equivalent experience/training. ?Working knowledge of seismological principles.
The University of California was chartered in 1868 and its flagship campus - envisioned as a "City of Learning" - was established at Berkeley, on San Francisco Bay. Today the world's premier public university and a wellspring of innovation, UC Berkeley occupies a 1,232 acre campus with a sylvan 178-acre central core. From this home its academic community makes key contributions to the economic and social well-being of the Bay Area, California, and the nation.
