Coordinator for Enviro-weather: Weather-based pest, natural resources and production management tools

Michigan State University’s Enviro-weather Project is seeking an individual to help manage and lead the program as coordinator. Enviro-weather consists of a network of more than 80 automated weather stations throughout the state that collect and transmit detailed weather data to a central database where it is organized and processed into more than 60 weather-based information and decision-making products and applications. Information from the system is distributed operationally to the public through its website: (www.enviroweather.msu.edu).

The Enviro-weather project team is a small but diverse group that performs website programming, systems administration, field operations, and communication tasks related to the project.  The Enviro-weather coordinator plans and organizes short-term logistics for the team.

The Coordinator is the liaison between the Enviro-weather team and users.  A primary responsibility is to educate users, answer questions, coordinate solutions to problems, assist with the development of new applications, develop training and publicity materials, attend meetings and solicit feedback. The successful candidate will be a team builder with strong interpersonal and communication skills.
