Job description

The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at the University of Colorado Boulder conducts collaborative research with NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI). CIRES has an immediate opening in the CIRES/NCEI Geomagnetism group for an Associate Scientist.

The successful applicant will collaborate with scientists from CIRES/NCEI Geomagnetism on developing new crustal magnetic field data products in support of magnetic field-aided navigation (MagNav). An example of such products is NOAA’s Earth Magnetic Anomaly Grid (EMAG), a global magnetic anomaly grid derived from satellite, ship, and airborne magnetic measurements. Other examples include high-resolution magnetic anomaly maps in selected areas of interest, and global geomagnetic field models (e.g., NOAA’s Enhanced Magnetic Model). MagNav, which allows for navigation when GPS is unavailable, is a fast-growing research field attracting considerable attention and investment.

The ability to work collaboratively within a team of research scientists, data managers and software developers is a must for this position. When new data collection is required, the Associate Scientist will collaborate with scientists from CIRES, NCEI and other organizations to design data collection campaigns and analyze the results from these new magnetic field surveys.

CIRES’ world-class research environment offers exceptional opportunities for professional growth and a pleasant Boulder, Colorado location. The CIRES Geomagnetism Team is known worldwide for expertise in geomagnetic research. This position offers flexible telework options but does require in-person work as well. 


The University of Colorado Boulder is committed to building a culturally diverse community of faculty, staff, and students dedicated to contributing to an inclusive campus environment. We are an Equal Opportunity employer, including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
