Open Positions at the Berkeley Seismological Lab

Applications Programming Manager I (Job ID #23602)

The Berkeley Seismological Lab (BSL), in collaboration with the US Geological Survey in Menlo Park, operates seismic networks throughout Northern California that provide rapid earthquake information to the state, emergency response organizations, and the public. The BSL and USGS/MP designed, developed, and operate the Northern California Seismic System (NCSS) of the California Integrated Seismic Network (CISN) and the Northern California Earthquake Data Center (NCEDC). The CISN is a member of the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS). The NCSS provides rapid earthquake information to the state, emergency response organizations, and the public, and the NCEDC provides the long-term data archiving and distribution systems for these data. The BSL also contributes to the operation and development of the West Coast ShakeAlert Earthquake Early Warning System (EEW).

The Berkeley Seismologial Lab Applications Programming Manager oversees and contributes to the design, planning, implementation and operations of the software systems that process and archive realtime earthquake information and data. The incumbent participates in the design and planning of the long range goals of the BSL geophysical networks, and the associated real time telemetry system, the NCSS, NCEC, and CISN. The incumbent designs, develops, modifies, tests, and evaluates and maintains computer programs, while also designing related databases as well as web interfaces and content. Work includes test-to-production processes, quality assurance, maintenance and documentation of applications, and may also include web applications programming. The Applications Programming Manager supervises internal programming staff working on the BSL projects related to earthquake monitoring, and data center operations. The incumbent also serves on and heads extra-university committees for planning, formulating and implementing standards and activities for the CISN, the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) and the ShakeAlert Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) system.
