Aloha All-

Below is the second announcement for a position open in the NOAA  
Hawaiian Monk Seal Research Program.  This is a non-Federal position  
so non-US Citizens are eligible for the job.

We are re-advertising for this position as our candidate pool wasn't  
large enough after the first go.  I would like to emphasize that this  
position is focused on database building and management, but also has  
a large component of dealing with computer/electronics needs for  
field work.  There is also the potential to be involved with the  
field aspect of our program for qualified candidates who are  
interested.  There is no GIS component to this job, though  
familiarity with GIS systems and geocoded data etc. is a plus.  So if  
you are looking for a job related to spatial ecology etc. this is not  
the one for you.  If you have any questions about job specifics  
please contact me (charles.littnan AT noaa.gov).

For information specific to JIMAR or applying for this position use  
the contact information below in the job advertisement.  I would also  
emphasize that the salary listed below is a MINIMUM, the actual  
salary will be based on experience and skills.


Please pass this along to anyone you think might be interested.
