Announcement of interest in recruitment of an IT Lead for NOAA's GLERL in Ann Arbor, Michigan

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) in Ann Arbor, Michigan anticipates the recruitment of an Information Technology Specialist to lead its IT Team. GLERL is a federal government laboratory with the mission to conduct innovative research on the dynamic environments and ecosystems of the Great Lakes to inform resource use and management decisions that lead to safe and sustainable ecosystems, ecosystem services, and human communities. In addition to the Ann Arbor facility, GLERL also operates the Lake Michigan Field Station located at Muskegon, Michigan. The GLERL IT system supports about 100 users running multiple computing platforms (Windows, Mac, UNIX, and Linux) and a 527-core SGI computing cluster.

The IT Lead will oversee and be responsible for all aspects of the Team's operations including applications software, operating systems, and network services and security. Ideal applicants would have knowledge of and experience in advanced IT principles, concepts, and practices; interrelationships of multiple IT disciplines, information systems security principles and concepts; network management methods; customer support; and project management principles, methods, and practices. Applicants should also have skills in applying advanced IT methods and standards and the ability to provide technical advice, guidance, and recommendations to management and other technical specialists on critical IT issues. Previous experience managing IT systems in a research and development setting is highly desirable, particularly if related to Great Lakes or oceanographic applications.
