Description of Position
The Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (NBMG) at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) invites applications for a Geologic Mapping Specialist position. NBMG is seeking candidates with a foundation in field based geologic data collection and analysis to contribute to the NBMG geologic mapping program. Primary responsibilities include geologic mapping, interpretation of geologic data, and publication of results. The position is principally focused on the production of geologic map products, primarily at 1:24,000 scale, with support from the USGS STATEMAP and EarthMRI programs. The position also involves participation in fundamental geologic research topics and applied projects related to evaluation of natural resources (e.g., mineral, geothermal, oil-gas) and/or geologic hazards (e.g., earthquakes, floods, and landslides). The ideal candidate will work closely with the Cartography / Geographic Information System (GIS) staff within NBMG. Additional duties include project management of grants and contracts, as well as identifying new research ideas and assisting in writing proposals for funding. The successful candidate must work independently, show creativity, and be assertive in the development, application, and evaluation of geologic mapping projects. The position is based on the UNR campus in Reno, Nevada, is funded by annual federal grants, and reports to the Director of NBMG.
