Within the Science Services department, itself a part of the User Engagement Division, the Senior Staff Scientist contributes to the execution of science-based services as articulated in the Strategic Plan of ONC, in which serving the research users and providing scientific solutions to stakeholders are core mandates. The Senior Scientist interacts with and provides support to a diverse national and international user community within a specific science and research area, with the goal of increasing the number of scientific publications, the number and breadth of users accessing the facility, broadening the awareness and utility of the observatories in the science community, and encouraging its use by an ever-widening community of interdisciplinary users and research topics. The Senior Scientist supervises and works with Junior Staff Scientists to facilitate research support activities for ONC users and stakeholders across all ONC installations. As an enabling catalyst, the Senior Staff Scientist acts to drive and integrate advances in interdisciplinary marine science, information technology, and multivariate earth-ocean informatics, as required by external users to analyze and use the complex data produced from ONC instruments and sensors. In conjunction with ONC Observatory Operations and User Engagement staff, the Senior Scientist ensures that engineering, software, and data delivery solutions developed and provided to stakeholders are scientifically accurate, functional, validated, and meet the highest standards for performance and integrity.

This position is required to travel nationally and internationally, approximately 8 times a year, for up to a week.  This position may be required to participate in Sea expeditions from time to time.
