The position will perform geologic hazard mapping with a focus on alluvial fan and debris-flow deposits, faults, folds, and associated landforms.
The successful candidate will also respond to emergency requests for technical input and community outreach as needed for a wide variety of potential geologic impacts to society.
Duties include documenting the site conditions, assessing the geologic impacts, and recommendations in memos or reports.
Assist other agencies in the technical response including public outreach as needed for the emergency response team.
Field work in remote areas will be required, as well as potential travel and work on short notice as an initial responder that can include weekends, holidays, and evenings.

About Mines & Golden, CO

When the world looks for answers, the world looks to Mines.

Colorado School of Mines is a top-ranked public university solving the grand challenges facing our society, particularly those related to the Earth, energy and the environment.
Founded in 1874 with specialties in mining and metallurgy, Mines’ scope and mission have continually expanded to meet the needs of industry and society.

Mines graduates are change makers, boundary breakers and problem solvers.
Since our earliest days, a Mines education has been and continues to be a transformational opportunity, with one of the strongest returns on investment out there for talented STEM students of all backgrounds.

At the same time, Mines faculty members are pushing their fields in new directions, whether that’s manufacturing, space resources, quantum engineering, carbon capture or more.
Mines was recently classified as a R1 “Very High Activity” research institution by Carnegie, a notable feat for any university but particularly one of our size.

Are you looking for an inspiring, mission-driven workplace where you can contribute to solving the world’s problems and educating the next generation of change makers?
