Stormwater Monitoring Consultant

by Sara Gomez Garcia

The Law Office of Nora J. Chorover (“NJC Law”) is looking for a stormwater monitoring consultant (“Consultant”) to perform stormwater monitoring tasks as part of the law firm’s ongoing Citizen Enforcement Project in Massachusetts. NJC Law represents environmental organizations in citizen suits brought in federal court to enforce environmental laws. Most federal environmental laws contain “citizen suit” provisions giving environmental groups the right to seek judicial remedy for illegal pollution. NJC Law’s Citizen Enforcement Project is presently focused on achieving widespread compliance with stormwater requirements of the federal Clean Water Act. Many of these stormwater suits are resolved through settlements in which companies agree to clean up their stormwater discharges and make a payment to a third party group that is working to improve the quality of the affected waterbody.

The Consultant will help NJC Law and its clients to determine whether particular facilities are complying with the Clean Water Act. In particular, the Consultant will conduct visual and analytical monitoring of industrial stormwater discharges in accordance with EPA’s “Industrial Stormwater Monitoring and Sampling Guide.” The Consultant will visit specified industrial facilities during rain events to perform water sampling and visual analysis. The Consultant will collect stormwater samples for laboratory analysis, send samples to the lab, and report back to NJC Law on the lab results. If litigation is required, the Consultant may be called upon to testify in court.

Qualifications: Bachelors or post-graduate degree
Interest in or familiarity with water quality monitoring
Driver’s license and either own car or qualify for car rental

Location: Massachusetts (various locations throughout Commonwealth)

Time commitment: As needed (1-3 monitoring events per calendar quarter)

Compensation: $30/hour for monitoring sampling and reporting
$80/hour for preparing and providing written or verbal sworn testimony in court proceedings

 

If interested, please contact Nora Chorover: nchorover@choroverlaw.com; (617) 477-3550

Allied Whale Intern/ Research Assistant Positions

by Sara Gomez Garcia

Allied Whale, the marine mammal research lab of College of the Atlantic
located in Bar Harbor, Maine, seeks 4 intern/research assistants for the
2015 field season. These are entry-level research positions designed to
offer experience for individuals seeking to develop their professional
careers in marine mammal research. Two three-month positions (mid
May-August) and two five-month positions (mid May-October) are available.

*Overview of position:* This is a unique internship program in that the
selected individuals will have the opportunity to participate and receive
training in a wide range of marine mammal research activities while
receiving a small income. Allied Whale currently supports field projects in
the behavioral ecology and distributions of humpback and fin whales, the
ongoing housing and maintenance of the North Atlantic humpback and fin
whale photo ID catalogs, an active stranding response program, and a
continued relationship with the local whale watch company. In addition,
Allied Whale maintains the facilities on and conducts research from Mount
Desert Rock, a remote offshore island. The interns play a critical role in
the success of the field season and serve as support to all aspects of
summer activities within Allied Whale.

*Description of duties: *Once the season is in swing, interns will rotate
through time on land and offshore. While on land, interns will take shifts
of working as a Research Assistant (RA)/Deckhand for the Bar Harbor Whale
Watch Co. and being on call for boat-based cetacean surveys on our research
vessel (TBD based on projects/funding).

*On land: *Research responsibilities on the whale watch trips include
searching for whales, photo-identification of whales and data
collection/entry. Deckhand responsibilities include line handling, vessel
cleaning, helping seasick passengers and passenger safety. RAs are also
responsible for assisting the naturalist in promoting education and
conservation programs on each trip.

While on board our research vessel, interns will be responsible to
participate in cetacean surveys along transect lines, computer data entry,
and photo identification of whales.

While not on the water, interns may freely structure their time to complete
office work, assist with/develop independent projects, assist with
stranding activities…or explore Acadia National Park!

*Offshore: *Interns will have multiple shifts (at least a week in length)
at our offshore research station Mount Desert Rock. While on the island,
interns will participate in land-based whale monitoring from the lighthouse
tower (with use of a theodolite), plankton tows, seal counts,  and
maintenance/construction projects at the station.

*Pay/Housing*: Those accepted to the program are able to earn income by
their work on the Bar Harbor Whale Watch Company. Deckhands are paid $45 a
trip (at the height of summer, there are 3 trips running a day) plus
considerable tips. Interns also receive free First Aid Certification.
Housing in Bar Harbor is provided and mandatory for a fee. Rent is $375 a
month. While at Mount Desert Rock, food is provided for free.

*Qualifications: *Applicants should have a college background in biology,
ecology, and/or marine sciences. Previous experience in a research setting
and knowledge of marine mammals are great advantages. Experience offshore
and skills in small boat handling are also assets. Unfortunately, because
of employment through the whale watch company, all interns must also be
U.S. citizens. Most importantly, applicants must be positive in attitude,
flexible to quickly changing schedules, able to work independently, and
comfortable working on boats. Because of the community living situation
both in Bar Harbor and on Mount Desert Island, applicants must get along
well with others and be able to handle working in a team setting.

These positions begin *~May **11**t*h and applicants must be able to work
through with no other commitments (excluding COA students). *Please specify
which position you are interested in (three of five month)*. Deadline of
application is February 1st.

**Please send a cover letter detailing your reasons for applying, a resume,
and two letters of recommendation to:

Backcountry Horseback Naturalists

by Sara Gomez Garcia

Job Description: Experience the best backcountry Yellowstone National Park has to offer! Use your wildlife and botany knowledge to work as a naturalist for Yellowstone Wilderness Outfitters. You will have the opportunity to view grizzlies, black bears, elk, and wolves all while interpreting Yellowstone’s hottest conservation issues for our guests. Guiding horseback tours in Yellowstone is the adventure of a lifetime. You are not just a tour guide; you are a Yellowstone ecology expert. You’ll learn all about the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and add extensive backcountry experience to your resume.

Interpersonal skills are vital to interacting with our guests. A guide must be able to field any and all questions about Yellowstone National Park. Knowledge of wildlife, wildflowers, general ecology, geology, and history is essential. We will point you toward materials that will help you prepare. You are essentially naturalists working on horseback. There is also a very physical side to the job. The job requires lifting 50 lbs or more, working in all weather conditions at altitudes of 6,000 to 10,000 feet, very long hours, and very few days off.

We are based out of Gardiner, MT, the North Entrance to Yellowstone National Park. Housing is required on-site in a huge, nice camper trailer, shared among other guides, and costs around $200 per month. Pets and personal horses are not allowed.

If you plan to spend all your time in the local bars, please don’t waste our time (and yours) applying. We expect all applicants to have a genuine desire to work in Yellowstone National Park.

Qualifications:
We are looking for a motivated individual who can follow basic directions and multi-task! Applicants must want to be part of a hard-working team; teamwork is what makes horseback trips run smoothly. Because you will be spending a great deal of time with our guests, you must desire to work with people and be happy to go the extra mile for our guests. Hours are long and in all weather conditions, but the reward is the Yellowstone backcountry! This is an outdoor job and you will be required to provide the equipment necessary for working in the backcountry. At a minimum, this must include: waterproof boots, western wear and hat, rain and winter gear, headlamp, Leatherman Wave, and a zero degree sleeping bag.

Specific qualifications include:
Commit to the season: June through September 2015 (exact contract dates to be determined). Be able to demonstrate experience with horses and possess competent riding skills. Video may be required of applicants. A minimum of a Bachelor’s degree is required. Previous naturalist and guiding experience is a plus, but not mandatory. Any experience with the public is beneficial. All positions are very labor intensive and applicants must be physically fit. Applicants must be at least 18 years old and arrive with valid First Aid and CPR certification. At this time, we are only able to hire US citizens or those with a U.S. work visa in-hand.

Position Descriptions: We will be hiring 1-3 guides.

Day Ride Naturalist Guide. We run half and full day rides in the Mammoth Hot Springs area. Your duties will include catching, saddling, and loading horses into a trailer; driving the trailer into the Park to meet your guests for the day; taking care of your guests along the trail and give info on YNP; serving lunch on the trail; and returning to the barn to unsaddle and check over horses and tack. You are also responsible for barn chores: basic horse health care, putting out hay, cleaning water tank, shoveling poop, and truck/trailer inspections.

Backcountry Naturalist/Wrangler. We run trips lasting four to six days every week for 13 weeks in a row. Pack trips are camping trips into the Yellowstone wilderness on horseback and take place throughout the Park. We camp in tents and sleeping bags and ride horses 15 miles per day. Your duties will include saddling horses and mules, setting up our portable electric fence, setting up camp, assisting with camp and kitchen tasks (tending the fire, fetching water, washing dishes, etc.), packing food and equipment in panniers, and assisting guests on horseback and around camp.

Backcountry Naturalist/Camp Cook. We run trips lasting four to six days every week for 13 weeks in a row. Pack trips are camping trips into the Yellowstone wilderness on horseback and take place throughout the Park. We camp in tents and sleeping bags and ride horses 15 miles per day. Your duties will include a combination of saddling horses, cooking breakfast and dinner, packing food and equipment in panniers, and assisting guests on all of our pack trips. This position requires a great deal of interacting with our guests. You will help them on the trail and discuss Yellowstone with them over breakfast. Backcountry and/or cooking experience not required.

For Application Instructions, please visit our website at  http://www.yellowstone.ws/jobs.html The application is very detailed; please be sure to follow all directions carefully and answer question fully. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
