Description

Duties

As a Hydrologist (Science Advisor) within the Oregon Water Science Center, some of your specific duties will include:
  • Serves as senior expert in the field and as such is responsible for complete, large scale hydrologic investigations by planning, conducting, and reporting on interpretive studies.
  • Represents the bureau on controversial projects. Works on highly complex or controversial water issues
  • Provides technical data, expert advice, and/or recommendations to senior leadership.
  • Serves as an authoritative source of consultation for other scientists and program specialists.
  • Develops and implements landscape-level projects to restore watersheds, improve water quality, and protect federal and tribal water rights. Prepares investigative project proposals and develops work plans/protocols.
  • Writes and publishes reports of findings as internal or external reports, recommendations to resource managers, or scientific journal publications.
  • Operates a government vehicle as an incidental driver.
Physical Demands : The work is typically performed in an office setting with no special physical demands. However, work may also be performed in the field which involves periods of walking, bending, climbing, or driving motor vehicles to worksites. The work may also involve some overnight travel for training, meetings, and site visits.

Working conditions : The work is usually performed in an office setting. However, work time may also be spent periodically visiting field sites. Field site visits are typically performed in either an outdoor setting subject to weather changes, diverse terrain, and safety hazards associated with working around complex features and/or construction, or an industrial setting subject to noise, fumes, and moving machinery. Both settings may require the use of personal protective equipment. Safety precautions and protocols are observed at all times and the scientist complies with safety instructions and regulations and ensures individual and others' safety by promptly reporting unsafe acts, unsafe conditions, and accidents to the supervisor.
