Hi Sarah! I hope you’re doing well and the fall semester is progressing smoothly. There are two job opportunities at SRBC that your students may be interested in. See the descriptions below and attached. Feel free to distribute and encourage interested folks to send a resume rather quickly, I think interviews are scheduled for early December.

All the best to you and your family. Have a great thanksgiving.

Over the last several months the Commission has been in discussions with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection regarding the methods we use to conduct water sampling for Chesapeake Bay monitoring sites. PADEP has decided that – due to the Chesapeake Bay cleanup goals and the need for consistent sampling methodology throughout the Chesapeake Bay drainage area – they want us to begin to use USGS sampling methods and protocols.

This change in sampling methods increases the level of effort needed to conduct the water sampling required under our grant. Therefore, the Commission is currently recruiting for two full-time Environmental Technicians for our Monitoring & Protection program. These positions will be non-exempt, which means that they will be eligible for overtime pay. Weekend work will be required. Please see the attached job description.

Due to the number of resumes already on file and the need to add these positions in a relatively short amount of time, we are only posting these positions internally. Internal candidates should send a cover letter and resume to me. Resumes will be accepted until end of day Sunday, November 20. Please feel free to forward this announcement to friends and acquaintances who may be interested in the position.
