The mission of the Ecosystems Mission Area of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is to provide scientific understanding and technologies needed to support sound management and conservation of our Nation's natural resources. Fulfilling this mission depends on effectively balancing the immediate need for information to guide management of resources with the need for technical assistance and long-range, strategic information to understand and predict emerging patterns and trends in ecological systems. The Great Lakes Science Center (GLSC) has five large research vessels throughout the Great Lakes Basin dedicated to research on fish community population dynamics, trophic interactions and ecosystem modeling, climate change, contaminants in fish, and application of advanced technologies. Thescientific mission requires that systems onboard all large vessels function properly, that safe access and its systems are maintained, and the USGS investments in the vessels are protected. Therefore, oversight and maintenance of GLSC large vessels is necessary to sustain the scientific research programs of GLSC.
Akima is looking for support personnel to work at the GLSC vessel base in Cheboygan, Michigan and occasionally the GLSC Lake Superior Biological Station (LSBS). The employee will serve as Machinery Maintenance Mechanic (MMM) aboard large vessels (between 100 and 299 gross registered tons) operated in support of fishery research on Lakes Michigan and Huron, and occasionally Lake Superior.
Operation of the vessel is essential to the conduct of important fish stock assessment and environmental research performed by the GLSC on the Great Lakes. The Center's program yields fundamental data on the year-to-year conditions of stocks of valuable game, food, and forage fishes and also provides related observations on their biology and quality of their environment.
The employee will undertake the following tasks with the possibility of strenuous, physical labor and sometimes under adverse weather conditions. Overnight travel will be required.
Task 1: Large Research Vessel General Operations and Maintenance
Task 2: Large Research Vessel Safety
