So, no different than the last two years, we will meet at Capital, which is the rooftop bar (8th floor) of the Scandic Continental hotel (Vasagatan 22), the one that is across the street from the Central Train Station.  

We are trying to make the website more sustainable. A first step is to set up a contribution system for you, the users! Please consider giving back to the website.

There are three ways you can contribute:

As I try to carve out some time over the next few months to focus on developing the website further, one element I’d like to get back on track is the blog (it’s been over two years since a real one!). I have plans for how to do this, but I thought I would just get the ball rolling again with some of the basics of the website. Where it came from and how it works. I think these are the two most asked questions I get when meeting people and talking about the site.

UPDATE: The survey is now closed

Dear all,

In starting to look at taking the website up a notch, we wanted to reach out and do another feedback survey to see where you all are at with the site, how to improve the site and to gather more ideas for elements and functionality that could prove useful for you all in searching for jobs and enhancing your career development. We want to make the site as user-friendly as possible and look to add features that you find useful.

Apologies for the late notice on the venue, but we're all set now... And, not such a surprise in that we will be meeting at Capital, the venue from last year, which is the rooftop bar (8th floor) of the Scandic Continental hotel (Vasagatan 22), the one that is across the street from the Central Train Station.  We have a space reserved starting at 20:00, on Wednesday, 29 August, which is when I will arive.

It's that time of year again where there is a big water meeting and I will organize a night out for drinks so you all can meet one another and I can try to put faces to the names on the website list.  So, on the occasion of the 8th World Water Forum in Brasilia, the event will take place at 20:00 on Wednesday, 21 March at BierFass Choperia e Restaurante, which can be found on the lake at Pontão do Lago Sul, s/n - Lote 9 - Lago Sul, Brasília - DF, 71630-970.  We have a reserved area there.  There is a map below.  It will take some fo

Many apologies for the long hiatus from posting jobs.  As mentioned in this morning's email digest, it was mix of a lot of things, but hopefully now back on track to continue with consistent uploading of jobs and weekly emails. 

It is my hope that we will continue to add functionality to the website and addtional activities under JWJ as well. There are some fairly interesting gaps to fill in the career development space and we aim to slowly incorporate them into the website.  So, stay tuned.

Dear All,

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Josh's Water Jobs has been put on hiatus. As you've no doubt noticed, neither the website nor the mailing list has received updates for some time now. We had originally expected this to be a short break but unfortunately we do not have an update at this time as to when job listings will start up again.

Thank you for your patience. We hope to be back at it soon, connecting the immense talent in the water community with new career opportunities!

As mentioned a few weeks ago when letting you know about the International Water Resources Association’s (IWRA) World Water Congress that will take place in May/June later this year, I hinted that Josh’s Water Jobs was going to partner with IWRA on a few activities.

Dear all,

IWRA and JWJ will be teaming up in the near future on some initiatives, but I first wanted to highlight an event that IWRA puts on every three years: the World Water Congress.  It is really one of the better quality events that takes place in the water community where, as the theme for this year suggests, science and policy unite.  This is where cutting edge academic work is presented and there is an increasing policy angle to its focus.

Plus, it is in Cancun.  Who can argue with that?
