SWCA Environmental Consultants is actively seeking resumes from qualified, driven individuals for a Lead Wetland Scientist in our Pittsburgh, PA office. The successful candidate will lead field crews during natural resources surveys. He/she will also write natural resources reports and prepare environmental permit applications, under the direction of a Project Manager to support regulatory requirements associated with energy development.
The position will entail both field and office work; however, it is expected that up to 75% of time will be spent performing fieldwork, primarily in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio. The ability to travel to work sites regionally, and accommodate multiple overnight stays to complete fieldwork is required. This position also requires hiking in rugged conditions.
This position is a full time, hourly position. Pay will be based on individual qualifications and experience. Hours will vary depending on project workload, and may require long days in the field. Overtime and per diem may also be possible in addition to base pay.
The successful candidate(s) should have the flexibility and willingness to learn company procedures as well as the ability to employ new, improved techniques; make independent decisions when appropriate to the situation; communicate effectively with Project Managers, supervisors, and team members; and make adjustments as a member of a team in order to complete tasks in the most efficient and accurate manner possible.
