Two Ocean Observatories Initiative positions at Oregon State University
The College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University is hiring two full-time Faculty Research Assistants to work on the Ocean Observatories Initiative. Oregon State University (OSU) is a partner on a large-scale multi-year federally funded project called the Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI). OOI is in the process of constructing and operating a global, networked infrastructure of science-driven sensor systems to measure the physical, chemical, geological, and biological variables in the ocean and seafloor. OSU operates the OOI Endurance Array which is a network of sensors deployed off the coast of Oregon and Washington. The Endurance Array includes over 200 instruments mounted on 6 surface moorings, 6 profilers, and 6 gliders. Ocean measurements from these instruments will be made available online in near real-time. 

The mooring technician FRA will oversee and participate in research facility and field operations to assemble, deploy, recover and refurbish oceanographic platforms and instruments used in the Endurance Array with a focus on mooring operations, including: 
- mechanical assembly and testing of oceanographic research platforms 
- ground transportation of research equipment 
- deployment and recovery of large oceanographic research platforms 
- refurbishment of oceanographic research mechanical components
