City of Asheville – Systems Analyst II – GIS

Here are the two student positions we would like to fill.

1. Data Analyst – This position will be on site at NC Highway Patrol Headquarters in downtown Raleigh. It is actually more of a data assistant than analyst, with the expectation that it “may” turn into a full time analyst position after one year. Undergrad fine.

2. Statistical Analyst – This position will be on site here at ITRE, working with our GIS Analyst to assist with crash analysis, and a second project implementing a personnel allocation model for reducing truck crashes.

Both are 12-20 hours per week at $16-18/hour depending on skill levels.
Instructions for applying are in the attached documents.
