The GLOBE Observer team has two job opportunities we would appreciate you passing along to your networks as appropriate. GLOBE Observer is part of the Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) Program, an international science and education program that provides students and the public worldwide with the opportunity to participate in data collection and the scientific process, and contribute meaningfully to our understanding of the Earth system and global environment.  GLOBE Observer is an app-based citizen science program that makes it possible for anyone to participate in GLOBE.

  • Research Scientist - Science Outreach - The position includes building and supporting a strong science user base for GLOBE citizen science data and communicating back to citizen scientists about how the data is used, as well as conducting research using GLOBE Observer data.
  • Graphic Designer/Technical Writer - The position entails creating content for print products, the website and social media. The individual selected for this position will play an active role on the GLOBE Observer communication team.

Both positions would be as contractors with Science Systems and Applications, Inc., but based out of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
