Seattle Washington Firm seeks someone to become an oil spill specialist.

We are looking for a marine scientist; mid level with opportunity for advancement and company ownership. We are a small international firm specializing in oil spill preparedness and training, technical advise to oil spill response, oil spill and coral reef injury assessment and restoration.  <>We are based in Seattle, but work nationally and internationally and do very little work in the Seattle area.


Requirements are Masters with several years experience or a recent PhD.  Some consulting and/or oil spill experience is ideal but not necessary.  We are looking for someone to grow into a future senior level scientist and company principal.  Academic background may include fish and fisheries, environmental toxicology, wildlife, research design and statistics, coral biology and modeling.   The person needs to be a good writer, public speaker, self-starting, enthusiastic and ability to think quickly.  The person should also be willing to travel frequently, often at a moments notice.  A good scientific background is a basic requirement, but only partially fulfils the political and social complexities of working on environmental disasters. 

The candidate would have to relocate to Seattle in order to work closely with other company principals.  Please peruse our website below for company profile, key technical personnel and recent job experience.

Best regards,

Greg Challenger
