The Department of Natural Resources, Maryland Geological Survey is seeking to fill a position at the Geologist III level. The successful candidate will carry out multiple primary and diverse functions associated with developing and conducting studies of the quantity and quality of groundwater resources of Maryland by collecting and analyzing data, interpreting results, and publishing reports. An important function of this position will be the planning, development, and documentation of numerical groundwater-flow models to assess the water-supply potential, movement of saltwater interface, land subsidence, and sea-level rise on aquifer systems of Maryland. More routine duties of the position include: (1) compiling and editing hydrogeologic data using ArcGIS, and other software, (2) compiling data tables and plots of ground-water levels and water-quality data, (3) producing and updating graphics and maps summarizing data collection and hydrogeologic analyses, and (4) gathering field data, including inventorying wells, setting up data recorders, and measuring groundwater levels. Less frequent duties include assisting in test-drilling activities, including aquifer testing, collecting and describing drill cuttings and cores, and collecting and processing groundwater-quality samples. Work frequently requires contact with well-drilling, consulting engineers and geologists, property owners, water-utility operators, and government personnel involved in water-resources management and regulation. The position often coordinates activities between multiple State and Federal agencies. Follow this link to apply:
