Due to continuing growth, we are seeking a Junior Environmental Engineer to join our Spill Response Group in our Chicago, IL office.

 
GHD’s Chicago Spill Response Group offers a wide variety of multi-discipline engineering experience and opportunities for the successful candidate.  Our Team offers 24/7/365 response services to our clients in the transportation, insurance, and industrial industries (among others) within the Midwest and occasionally across the US and Canada, providing engineering support for various emergency incidents including; train derailments, pipeline releases, industrial fires, trucking accidents, chemical spills, residential heating oil release, etc. Some of these incidents require immediate response and quickly turn into short to long-term environmental remediation projects for GHD.  Some of the environmental engineering services our Team provides include, environmental investigation, air monitoring, soil and groundwater remediation, water resources and storm water management, underground tank removals, regulatory compliance assistance, and Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments for both spill response and historical long-term environmental projects.

 

 
The Successful Candidate will be responsible for:
  • Conducting field work including; groundwater/soil sampling, water level monitoring,  investigative drilling, monitoring well installation, soil and groundwater remediation (excavation, in-situ, etc.), contractor oversight, air monitoring, stream and river rehabilitation, site restoration, and  construction inspections for both emergency spill response and long-term environmental investigation and remediation projects
  • Assisting with the preparation of technical engineering reports including environmental investigation and closure reports, remedial alternative / design / action plans, design project specifications, bid documents, regulatory submissions, and emergency response plans
  • Assisting Project Managers with preparing proposals, work plans, cost estimates, memorandums, letters, tables, figures, presentations, etc.

  • Flexible availability to assist with emergency spill response work (including weekends and nights) for clients when required (Note: emergency response services in this group are carried out as a team, the successful candidate would not be required to respond to every emergency event)
  • Excellent organizational and time management skills to be able to meet deadlines
