As an Ecological Services Project Scientist for Civil & Environmental Consultants, Inc. (CEC), you’ll manage project teams to navigate today’s complex environmental regulatory landscape, helping our commercial, institutional, and energy clients to achieve and maintain surface water compliance. You’ll supervise junior ecologists and lead project work that will include bat surveying, permitting and report writing. Project work will also include delineations, permitting, mitigation and design of wetlands, streams and other waters. Working with clients, contractors, and local government officials, you’ll impact the whole project - from conceptual and design phases, through the regulatory review process, bidding, and construction, all the way to parkland creation.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • B.S. in a natural sciences field (e.g., Biology, Environmental Sciences, Ecology);

  • 2-5 years’ professional ecological/biological consulting experience;

  • Experience with bat surveying practices including mist-netting and acoustic monitoring;

  • Experience conducting and supervising wetland and stream delineation activities;

  • Experience with writing reports and preparing Clean Water Section 401/404 permit applications;

  • Willing to travel throughout the Midwest.

Here’s What We’d Like to See:

  • Experience conducting Indiana bat surveys;

  • Experience conducting wildlife surveys and habitat assessments for threatened and endangered animals;

  • Endangered Species Act compliance experience.
