CSI is seeking a qualified individual to work on research and development projects including gas analyzer development and validation, optimization of gas analyzer production processes, laser-based trace gas analysis, and ultrasonic anemometer development. We are seeking a creative individual with a strong background in instrumentation to join our interdisciplinary team of researchers and engineers specialized in these measurement techniques. The successful candidate will contribute to this team and help identify new opportunities and solve challenges of bringing those techniques to the marketplace.
For this position, we welcome individuals pursuing academic research objectives (graduate or postdoctoral) that can offer crossover skills as a hands-on technician. Research opportunities include measuring gas and energy exchange between the land surface and the atmosphere using the eddy covariance technique. The experiments rely on eddy covariance for measuring carbon dioxide, water vapor, methane, nitrous oxide, and energy exchanges.
The candidate will work closely with engineering staff, researchers, market specialists, and technicians that are attentive to all aspects of sensor development in a highly collaborative and engaging work environment. The ability to work constructively in this group dynamic is essential, as are strong verbal and written communication skills. The combination of specialty skills needed for this job should not discourage otherwise qualified candidates from applying if they lack particular qualifications. To a reasonable extent, gaps in qualification may be filled with training and mentorship on the job.
You'll Support Your Team by Performing the Following Tasks
- Participation in field research activities involving instrument setup, maintenance, data collection, and field campaigns.
- Assist in the collection and analysis of flux data and subsequent publication of findings.
- Prototype assembly of micrometeorology instruments. This requires mechanical, optical, and electronic skills.
- Learn and follow standard CSI operating procedures for the design process, manufacturing, and other operations.
- Create and maintain a strong culture in accordance with Campbell Scientific's core ARCTIC values - Accountability, Respect, Client-Centric, Teamwork, Innovation, Continuous Improvement
What We're Looking For
- Fulfil work responsibilities under moderate supervision, in team settings, as well as individually.
- Designs, implements, installs, and maintains hardware, software, and installations. Monitors overall performance to proactively identify potential issues. Performs root cause analysis on failed components and implements corrective measures. Works with others to establish and improve processes and procedures.
Work Environment & Physical Requirements:
- Preferred to have general knowledge in the following areas:
- Micrometeorology and eddy covariance
- Gas physics, isotopic analysis, or gas flux analysis
- Application of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, calculus, statistics, and physics
- Electronic technician techniques
- Mechanical and optical assembly techniques
- Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English
Much of the work is performed in an office setting at a computer or in the production laboratory/workshop. Outdoor field work involving lifting, climbing, and walking in moderate terrain is also expected. Must be physically able to work in all of these settings.
