Graduates of geomatics or surveying-related programs would be well-qualified and are encouraged to apply. Please share this opportunity with anyone who may be interested. I would be glad to provide any assistance I can at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looks like a great opportunity. I would try for the Woodford, Va as it is the site of the Instrumentation and Methodologies Branch. A lovely site as well in the rolling hills and close to Fredericksburg, Va a very historic city. Norfolk is also a nice place. Silver Spring not so much.
I consider the failure to provide relocation expenses to be a mistake given the high cost of living especially in Silver Spring, MD.
A great chance to get some field experience and work with some top-notch folks whose egos were well under control.
I hope you get lots of applications.
The salary slot is huge. 60k difference...
Can one expect 112k if licensed already? I'll take government work with that salary.
Big shoes to fill. Some of you may have known Charlie Glover who worked on NGS field crews and then settled down at Corbin (Woodford). He was a pioneer in the (equipment) development and testing of GNSS systems many of us use. Did not stop there as he tested optics, lasers and infrared and their measurement accuracies and furnished the manufactures his results. He would stop by the office talking for hours telling stories and always willing to help someone. Corbin would be good duty. Unfortunately Charlie died in a fire a few years ago but left a legacy and deep footprints at Corbin.
NOAA uses a pay scale called ZP which can map to the GS system used by many other agencies. The range for this announcement goes from GS-9, Step 1 in Norfolk, VA to GS-12, Step 10 in Silver Spring, MD.
OMG. I have no idea what that means. If I apply do I get the decoder ring?
