To support a new, 3-year, NSF-funded research project to create NEPAccess, an

applications for a full stack web applications developer.

The position is an exciting opportunity to be part of a cutting-edge,

School of Information (Steven Bethard), and Department of Management 
Information Systems (Sudha Ram)—related to environmental decision-making and 
citizen participation in the U.S.

The selected candidate will develop scalable techniques to organize and analyze 
(and publish scholarly papers on) documents and data arising from the National 
Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and housed a variety of repositories and 
federal agency sources.

The candidate will integrate these disparate data sources using relational and 
graph databases and will work with stakeholders and users to develop a web 
front-end and a suite of tools to support the retrieval and analysis of data.

The candidate should be comfortable with all phases of the software development 
life cycle. This is a one-year position, renewable to a maximum of 3 years, 
with the possibility of renewal contingent on availability of funding.

Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, and vision insurance plans;

holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family 
members; state and optional retirement plans; access to UA recreation and 
cultural activities; and more!
