  • Interact and communicate with environmental risk assessment scientists, engineers, and project managers throughout GHD network
  • Communicate directly with clients and regulatory agencies throughout North America (and potentially Internationally)
  • Manage multiple projects and support teams

  • Strong background in data analysis and biostatistics
  • Must have good oral and written communication skills, attention to detail, and excellent computer skills
