Qualifications: Required qualifications:
• MS in Physical Oceanography, Environmental Engineering, Environmental Science, or closely related field;
• Minimum of 15 years of direct experience working on federal and state Superfund or RCRA corrective action sites;
• Experience in use and development of comprehensive numerical modeling tools for waterways, such as hydrodynamic, sediment transport, and contaminant fate and transport models (e.g. ECOM, EFDC, SEDZLJ, WASP, RCA-TOX);
• Familiarity with the procedures for collecting environmental data under agency approved plans and data evaluation and interpretation techniques;
• Ability to analyze and interpret physical and chemical data for the use in a variety of environmental models;
• Ability to perform model calibration and verification;
• Ability to present analysis, findings, and conclusions in a variety of formats and venues;
• Ability to lead a team of staff to perform modeling assignments and deliver results for federal, state, and local clients in the northeastern US;
• Must possess excellent verbal and written communication skills.
