Essential Duties and Responsibilities
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.

Essential Qualifications Include:
  • 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
To apply, please mail, fax or e-mail attention L. Mack, hiring@balancehydro.com. We invite phone inquiries, but ask that applicants first transmit an initial letter of interest and a resume.
