Job Description

The Data Science and Innovation Group is seeking an Undergraduate Intern to serve as a curator for both the Geothermal Data Repository (GDR) and the Marine and Hydrokinetics Data Repository (MHKDR). These data repositories provide public access to DOE-funded geothermal and marine and hydrokinetic energy research. Data is typically submitted by scientists conducting the relevant research; therefore, work will consist of curation of individual submissions and helping scientists to properly submit data.

Curation of submissions is defined as the review of metadata provided with each submission for accuracy, completeness, and relevance to the submitted files. Curation also includes the organization of disparate submissions, creating consistency amongst metadata fields, updating metadata from older submissions to be consistent with current standards and requirements, and the addition of supplemental information that may assist the DOE GTO in categorizing data submissions. When necessary, curators contact submitters directly to resolve any discrepancies or omissions detected during the review.
