This is a really hot job that includes travel

Life a little dull? Want a little excitement?

Well, the volcano people are seeking someone to monitor the gases being emitted by the active mountains.

This does not appear to be a desk job. In addition to having a doctorate or master’s degree in a relevant field like geochemistry, the successful applicant will have to go to the various volcanos and get samples of the gases being spewed from cracks and crevices. Volatile gases.

And there is travel because that’s where the volcanoes are.

The successful applicant should be bilingual, too, said the Observatorio Vulcanológico y Sismológico de Costa Rica at Universidad Nacional in Heredia. The full posting is on the Observatorio’s Web site.
