We are looking for an enthusiastic, multi-talented individual to join our 
group.  We need someone who can learn to install, troubleshoot, and maintain 
Linux systems with our extensive Python code base; is comfortable training 
marine technicians to operate UHDAS, and working with scientists to adapt UHDAS 
and CODAS to their needs; and is interested in traveling to ships in port and 
on short cruises for installation, maintenance, and training.  The job will 
call on a wide range of skills: communication and working with a variety of 
people; technical proficiency with instrumentation, computers, and programming; 
and scientific sense in evaluating observations, from the raw data streams 
through the final product.

We have recently acquired funding to install and support UHDAS on much of the 
NOAA research fleet, so 

Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) are used on research ships to 
measure ocean currents.  During a cruise, the current observations may be used 
to locate features, or to aid in deploying over-the-side equipment; afterwards, 
they play a role in a wide range of applications, from climatological 
descriptions of ocean circulation to detailed process studies of current 
features (e.g., fronts, eddies) and phenomena (e.g., internal waves).  Our 
group at the University of Hawaii has been involved with shipboard ADCPs for 
over 30 years. As developers of a widely-used open source, multi-platform 
shipboard ADCP processing system, (CODAS: we help scientists 
and technicians turn their raw ADCP and ancillary measurements into a 
science-worthy data product.  Our acquisition system, UHDAS 
(, is 
installed on most of the U.S. academic research vessels.  It is designed to 
provide rapid access to the measurements at sea, and to facilitate subsequent 
processing and use of the data. UHDAS will now be installed on much of the NOAA 
research fleet, and we will support this effort. We are looking for a talented 
individual to
