Local recruitment: Chesapeake Bay Program's Water Quality Goal Team Staffer

Chesapeake Research Consortium

Annapolis, MD, USA 🇺🇸

The Environmental Management Staffer in this position will support the Chesapeake Bay Program’s Water Quality Goal Implementation Team (WQGIT). The WQGIT coordinates and provides support to the Chesapeake Bay Program partners in efforts to achieve clean water goals of the 2014 Watershed Agreement, particularly in implementing nutrient and sediment reduction efforts necessary to meet the water quality standards to support the Bay’s living resources. The goal team’s primary focus is to support efforts to reduce nutrient and sediment loads entering the Bay and to ensure that these reductions are maintained over time. There are two Water Quality GIT Staffers who provide support to the GIT and workgroups associated with the goal team’s focus areas. This Staffer position will support the work of the WQGIT and be the primary support for the toxic contaminants, watershed technical, and urban stormwater workgroups. As the Environmental Management Staffer in this position, you will work closely with the Water Quality GIT chairs, coordinator, and workgroup chairs and will assist them with the coordination, communication, and tracking of collaborative team actions. As an Environmental Management Staffer in this program, you would have a unique opportunity to develop up to 3-years of professional experience through your day-to-day work activities while having dedicated time and support focused on your individual professional growth. This position offers an opportunity to work with a broad team of partners from across the Chesapeake Bay watershed representing a vast network of government (federal, state, and local) and nongovernment entities. The skills and network gained from this position will be valuable to someone seeking further education and/or career development in the environmental policy and scientific field with a focus on water quality, watershed restoration and natural resources management. Environmental Management Staffers work a hybrid work schedule, dividing time each week between in-office work and telework.
