Balance Hydrologics is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer.
Balance Hydrologics is seeking a senior-water quality specialist to support its habitat restoration and management programs. The successful candidate will:
- Simulate treatment efficacy using a variety of scenarios and software
- Help design and conduct field trials for storm runoff in urban and agricultural areas
- Participate in Balance's sediment-transport and sediment-tracing programs
- Quantify effectiveness in vadose-zone and shallow groundwater using lysimeters, nested piezometers and other instrumentation
- Assess treatment efficiencies in wetlands in waters and soils
- Support or conduct microbial-source tracing of pathogens
- Distinguishing anthropogenic and natural sources of trace elements.
Most work entails nutrient budgets, detection of agricultural chemicals in offsite runoff, design of treatment wetlands, and real-time tracing of runoff. Balance's work is fundamentally in support of habitat management and restoration; conventional toxics or RCRA is rarely done.
- An advanced degree in a related field
- At least 8 years of a mix of field and permit-support work
- A record of interdisciplinary work, and strong history of team science
- Ability and willingness to conduct sampling during storms or other adverse conditions, and to install and operate instrumentation in montane or rough terrain
- Familiarity and a history of working with conventional stormwater regulations, NEPA, CEQA, ESA, and coastal-zone regulations
- Strong communications and supervisory abilities
