This is a highly experienced Scientist position responsible for performing a wide range of non-routine, progressively more complex scientific-related work that involves investigation of a number of variables and alternatives and requires application of advanced and comprehensive knowledge of discipline-related concepts, methods and practices. The position independently plans, schedules, coordinates, manages and conducts moderately complex scientific processes or multi-phase scientific projects that support water resources management and environmental restoration initiatives.

The Scientist Senior position will reside in the Compliance Assessment and Reporting (CAR) Section within the Water Quality Bureau and will report to the Compliance Assessment Section Leader.

This position requires understanding of water quality data, hydrologic data, statistical methods, DBHYDRO, standard computer tools, and the Clean Water Act (including the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System [NPDES] program and TMDLs) as well as state water quality standards and their application.

The successful candidate must possess knowledge of computer hardware and software for word processing, data retrieval, data analysis, and presentation/publication of scientific information; ability to build and maintain effective interpersonal relationships with District professional, technical, and computer staff, work effectively in a team environment, and demonstrate strong oral and written communication skills.
