Opportunity Type:

North Temperate Lakes Long Term Ecological Research (NTL LTER) studies the ecology of lakes as one of a network of sites established by the National Science Foundation. We are interested in how biophysical setting, climate, and changing land use and cover interact to shape lake characteristics and dynamics over time (past, present, future).

The Environmental Data Initiative (EDI) is a data repository where environmental data are publicly available for open and reproducible science promoting synthesis across space and time.

This position of a data curator for NTL LTER and EDI is a leadership role in both projects providing vision and guidance in data curation approaches and current best practices. The data curator is expected to be involved in community standards developments and lead local implementations. Provides data management consultation and engages with data creators, locally, nationally, and internationally to assure high quality data and metadata for discoverability and usability of published data products.

Both, NTL LTER and EDI, are NSF funded position and will require continued proposal development and customer interactions for future financial security.

This position is partial remote, with NTL LTER tasks requiring on site presence and EDI tasks being entirely remote in a distributed team.
