The National Science Foundation (NSF) EarthCube initiative is a community-driven project aimed at creating an integrated environment for the sharing of geoscience data and knowledge in an open, transparent, and inclusive manner. EarthCube is governed and guided by its Leadership Council, Standing Committees, Teams, and Working Groups. The community-based EarthCube Science Support Office (ESSO) is being created within UCAR in Boulder, Colorado to oversee and govern EarthCube project activities.
The Project Coordinator will provide experienced operational support to program management and represent the office in committee, community, and governance engagement.
The Project Coordinator will, among other things:
- Serve as a liaison between EarthCube governance and the EarthCube community, as well as between EarthCube governance and NSF, facilitating exchange of information between these stakeholders.
- Participate in the production and management of ESSO communication channels and products, including the EarthCube website, online forums, newsletters, electronic mailing lists, private document sharing, and overall ESSO updates.
- Provide administrative, logistical, and travel support for organization of virtual and face-to-face meetings of EarthCube governing committees, conferences, and workshops, including the annual EarthCube All Hands Meeting and EarthCube meetings at key scientific conferences like AGU.
Initial consideration will be given to applications received by July 15, 2016.
