MassDEP’s Watershed Planning Program: Field & Laboratory Operations Coordinator (Environmental Analyst III)

MassDEP’s Watershed Planning Program (WPP) is responsible for conducting surface water quality monitoring to support the implementation of key programs under the Clean Water Act. While the majority of samples collected by WPP are analyzed by the MassDEP Wall Experiment Station Laboratory in Lawrence, MA, WPP conducts some analyses in-house (e.g., color, turbidity, chlorophyll a) and makes extensive use of field instruments (multiprobe sondes and data loggers). The Field & Laboratory Operations Coordinator will oversee all of WPP’s in-house field preparation and lab activities, play a key role in downloading and processing data collected in the field from tablets and data loggers, and conduct other tasks as described in the full job description (see link below).

We are seeking candidates with a strong interest in providing support to water quality field and laboratory operations, and a demonstrated ability to perform this function through past experience, including managing laboratory and/or field operations in conformance to strict quality assurance protocols. The candidate’s main duties will be supporting the deployment of field crews, lab analyses, and quality assurance/data management activities, but may occasionally participate in field operations.
