The College of the Environment has an outstanding opportunity for a Research Scientist/Engineer 2 – OAEL (Ocean Acidification Environmental Laboratory) Lab Manager and Research Analyst to conduct scientific analyses of water samples and to manage the operations for an ocean acidification laboratory for research and teaching at UW Friday Harbor Laboratories. Position is located in Friday Harbor, WA.
The Research Scientist/Engineer 2 – OAEL Lab Manager and Research Analyst is a position with the University of Washington’s College of the Environment, Washington Ocean Acidification Center (WOAC). In order to foster connections among researchers, policymakers, industry, and others, the Washington Ocean Acidification Center was established in July 2013 under direction from the Washington State Legislature and Governor Inslee. The establishment of the WOAC is a result of the Blue Ribbon Panel on Ocean Acidification recommendations.
The Center is led by the College of the Environment at the University of Washington and includes faculty and staff from multiple departments and disciplines. The Center is co-directed by Jan Newton (Applied Physics Laboratory, Oceanography) and Terrie Klinger (Marine and Environmental Affairs).
The OAEL Laboratory at the Friday Harbor Labs is a UW cost center, an organizational unit or activity that provides goods and services primarily to internal University operations. Therefore, there are, and will increasingly be, multiple clients (researchers and research groups) who will be using the laboratory.
This position will play a key role in the continued development of ocean acidification research at the University of Washington and among its partners in the WOAC. Faculty and research scientists from the University who will engage in OA research will have access to a laboratory where they can conduct experiments critical to the determining the state of ocean acidification in the PNW.
