I wanted to ask your help to spread the word on an exciting new hiring
opportunity for CRREL here in Fairbanks, Alaska. I apologize if this is a
cross E-mail for some of you- we have a short fuse on this.

We have been growing our office the past few years and these are exciting
times at CRREL. We are looking for a new PI to bring in, mentor,
collaborate with, and get spun up as a researcher at CRREL.

The position is open NOW (today) and closes June 1.

Thank you for sending this along to the broadest number of people you can.


Position: GS-11 Research Physical Scientist Position in Fairbanks, Alaska
with the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Lab (CRREL)

Location: Fairbanks, Alaska

Salary Range: $64,000 to 83,000 per year plus Federal Employee health and
retirement benefits.

Application period open: May 21 to June 1, 2015

Applicants MUST be a U.S. citizen.

We typically hire into these positions at the recent Ph.D. or Postdoc level
but a Master’s and/or a lot of experience may be suitable.

There is some text below describing the position and links on how to apply
are at the bottom of this Email. Please forward this around to as many
people as you feel may be interested.

My take:

We seek a Research Physical Scientist with a background in cryospheric
research in the broad fields of geophysics, ecology, biogeochemistry,
and/or hydrology to join a spirited and growing office of ten.

CRREL has a proud tradition of creative cryospheric research and
engineering in Alaska and other cold regions. The position requires an
ability to compose proposals, papers, and reports in a timely manner. Our
office is closely intertwined with our main lab in Hanover, NH.

We seek a dynamic individual capable of eventually garnering their own
basic or applied funded research program. We need a person who can
dependably tolerate challenging Alaska and Arctic field conditions and a
demanding, yet collegial, office environment.

The announcement “official” description:

As a research physical scientist you will specialize in cold regions
environmental characterization of permafrost and the seasonal snowpack at a
variety of spatial scales. You will be responsible for conducting remote
field physical process measurements throughout Alaska and in other Arctic
and subarctic terrains in order to better understand interactions among
ecosystems, the cryosphere, the water cycle, and a changing climate in the
Arctic and subarctic. You will support basic and applied research focused
on DoD installations and research sites throughout Alaska. You will garner
internal and external funding by leading and co-leading proposals;
presenting research results in peer reviewed journals, project reports, and
through participation in project meetings and at international research
symposia. You will collaborate on research projects with the Engineer
Research Development Center (ERDC) in Alaska and at other locations,
marketing ERDC and the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory
(CRREL) Alaska Research Office, and meeting customer needs through timely
analysis and deliverables. This position will be located at the ERDC-CRREL
Alaska Projects Office at Fort Wainwright, Alaska.

To qualify for the GS-11 level, your resume must describe at least one year
of experience equivalent to the GS-09 grade level which prepared you to do
the work of this job. Specialized experience is defined as: conducting
research related to cold regions, such as environmental characterization of
permafrost and the seasonal snowpack at a variety of spatial scales.
Experience in at least one of the topic areas of environmental
geochemistry, soil sciences, geophysical characterization, or hydrogeology.
Experience also includes identifying parameters for research and funding;
garnering internal and external funding by leading or co-leading
proposals. This definition of specialized experience is typical of work
performed at the next lower grade/level position in the federal service

You will be evaluated on the basis of your level of competency (knowledge,
skills, abilities) in the following areas:

·         Knowledge of Cryospheric Science

·         Skill in Conducting Research Studies

·         Skill in Developing Research Programs

·         Skill in Communication

All qualification requirements, including time-in-grade and time after
competitive appointment, must be met by the closing date of this

This announcement MAY be used to fill like vacancies for six months after
the closing date.

 *Basic Education Requirements:*

A. Degree: physical science, engineering, or mathematics that included 24
semester hours in physical science and/or related engineering science such
as mechanics, dynamics, properties of materials, and electronics.
B. Combination of education and experience -- education equivalent to one
of the majors shown in A above that included at least 24 semester hours in
physical science and/or related engineering science, plus appropriate
experience or additional education.

GS-11 Research Physical Scientist position in Fairbanks is live. Closes
Monday, June 1.
