Job Description

Job Owner: Genevieve Dahl
Our client is seeking a Costal Subject Matter Expert responsible for the planning, design, and management of coastal infrastructure and protection systems. Their primary focus is on managing the interaction between land and water along coastlines to mitigate erosion, flooding, and other coastal hazards, while also promoting sustainable development and environmental conservation. 

Key Responsibilities:

  1. Coastal Infrastructure Design: Designing and engineering coastal structures such as seawalls, breakwaters, groins, revetments, and beach nourishment projects to protect shorelines from erosion and flooding.
  2. Hydrodynamic Modeling: Utilizing advanced computational tools and hydrodynamic models to analyze wave action, currents, sediment transport, and coastal processes to inform design decisions and predict the impact of proposed coastal interventions.
  3. Environmental Impact Assessment: Conducting environmental impact assessments to evaluate the potential effects of coastal development projects on local ecosystems, marine life, and water quality, and proposing mitigation measures to minimize negative impacts.
  4. Coastal Hazard Mitigation: Developing strategies and implementing measures to mitigate coastal hazards such as storm surges, tsunamis, sea-level rise, and erosion through the use of natural and engineered solutions.
  5. Project Management: Overseeing coastal engineering projects from conception to completion, including budgeting, scheduling, procurement, and coordination with contractors, regulatory agencies, and stakeholders.
  6. Coastal Monitoring and Maintenance: Establishing monitoring programs to assess the performance of coastal structures over time and implementing maintenance and repair plans to ensure their continued effectiveness and safety.
  7. Research and Innovation: Staying abreast of advancements in coastal engineering research and technology and incorporating innovative approaches and best practices into project designs and methodologies.
  8. Community Engagement: Engaging with local communities, government agencies, and stakeholders to gather input, address concerns, and foster collaboration in the planning and implementation of coastal projects.

  • Bachelor’s degree in civil engineering or a related field
  • Professional engineering (PE) license or eligibility for licensure.
  • Strong background in fluid mechanics, coastal processes, and coastal engineering principles.
  • Proficiency in computer-aided design (CAD) software, hydrodynamic modeling software, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
  • Excellent analytical, problem-solving, and decision-making skills.
  • Effective communication skills, both verbal and written, with the ability to communicate technical concepts to diverse audiences.
  • Experience managing coastal engineering projects and working collaboratively with multidisciplinary teams.
  • Commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainable coastal development practices.
