Pursuant to a cooperative project between the New York State (NYS) Water Resources Institute (WRI) at Cornell University and New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), this position will support the efforts of the WRI at Cornell University, whose mission is to improve the management of water resources in New York State and the nation. NYSWRI collaborates with regional, state, and national partners to increase awareness of emerging water resources issues and to develop and assess new water resource management, technologies, and policies. WRI connects water research and water management communities.  This position is for an individual who has a holistic interest and expertise in streams and other aquatic systems with respect to, but not limited to, barriers (culverts and dams) to aquatic passage, harmful algal blooms, flood risks, watershed modeling and planning, and biotic and geomorphologic restoration.  This person will take a leadership role in the on-going efforts in aquatic barrier and stream-crossing assessments in the Hudson River Estuary watershed, while serving as a collaborative team-member to regional watershed management, planning, and outreach needs. The main responsibilities will be directed by commitments and targets in the Hudson River Estuary Action Agenda related to clean water and community resilience, although other priorities, such as scenic resource planning and outreach, may require assistance as part of an interdisciplinary team. We are especially interested in applicants with highly effective skills in community engagement and technical communication.  The person in this position is also expected to be able to coordinate grants, mentor/manage employees, and collaborate with a diverse constellation of cooperators and experts, including Cornell faculty.  Ideally, the person hired into this position would be flexible and broadly capable of accommodating and adapting to WRI/DEC program priorities as they evolve.This position is a 1 year appointment with possible extension depending on available work, funding and successful performance.  This position is located in New Paltz, NY.  See website for more details: https://cornell.wd1.myworkdayjobs.com/en-US/CornellCareerPage/job/New-York-State-Other/Extension-Supp-Spec-II_WDR-00014009
