Are you or someone you know interested in working to protect and restore wetlands, streams, and other aquatic habitats? If so, U.S. EPA Region 9 will soon announce some exciting job opportunities. This will include hiring two wetlands specialists (GS-11/12) to work in the Wetlands Section in the Water Division at U.S. EPA Region 9. These positions entail using scientific expertise, planning, monitoring and assessment, and integrating the Clean Water Act Section 404 regulatory and non-regulatory programs to protect and restore wetlands and other aquatic resources. Candidates must have a degree in the life or physical sciences (e.g., biology, ecology, hydrology, geology, etc.) and we are very interested in those who have experience working in wetland regulatory and/or related aquatic resource protection and restoration programs. In the coming weeks, job announcements with specific requirements for these wetland positions should be posted at USAJobs.
