Broadcast Engineer: WRUV-FM—a 460-watt Non-Commercial FM Station located in Burlington, Vermont—is seeking a broadcast engineer to maintain the station’s equipment and to ensure that the radio station remains FCC-compliant.

WRUV’s engineer is responsible for the technology necessary to put the station’s broadcast “on-the-air” within the station’s licensed range. The engineer works to maintain existing broadcasting capabilities and provide quick solutions to problems that may arise with the transmitter, tower satellite receiver and other related equipment. The engineer installs and performs preventive maintenance on the station’s control consoles, boards, recording equipment, microphones, and a wide variety of other station equipment and electronic systems.

The engineer works closely with the station’s management. The engineer is expected to be up-to-date on latest changes in FCC and other regulations that affect WRUV and to keep management informed of these changes so as to keep the station in FCC compliance. The engineer meets as needed with the WRUV station manager and/or chief operator and responds to emergencies as needed.

WRUV is an educationally based radio station managed by UVM students, with whom the engineer meets regularly, and the ideal candidate will be one who feels comfortable educating students in station maintenance. The engineer is expected to work with and/or train the chief operator on specific equipment or operating procedures as requested by the station manager and update a technical manual for reference of any on-air operator.

The engineer works on an as-needed basis. As a contract employee, the engineer is expected to procure and maintain required insurance coverage and provide a certificate of insurance evidencing that this insurance coverage is in effect.

Anticipated hours: Approximately 2 to 3 hours a week.

Pay rate: $65 an hour.

For any given week, the engineer will work hours as deemed necessary by both the engineer and WRUV leadership. More hours would likely be worked in those weeks (1) when the engineer trains students in basic and/or advanced station operation and FCC rules, including maintenance of the public file and other tasks for which student leadership is largely responsible and (2) when station emergencies arise. Fewer hours would likely be worked during other weeks. If possible, the engineer should visit the station at a pre-designated weekly or semi-weekly time to meet with station leadership; the exact time can either be stated in the contract or negotiated post-contract. The engineer will be expected to report his hours on a weekly or semi-weekly basis, as negotiated, so that correct payment can be made promptly.

To apply: Contact the UVM student media adviser, Chris Evans, at Chris.Evans@uvm.edu or 802-656-2060.  EOE.  Posted November 17, 2017.
