Sealaska Technical Services (STS) is a critical subcontractor on the N3B Los Alamos LLC team and will be providing program management and technical services in support of the ground & surface water monitoring program at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Los Alamos National Laboratory.
STS is a full-service engineering and environmental consulting company with a worldwide reach in the areas of environmental monitoring and remediation, national security, systems engineering, data management and analytics for both federal and commercial customers. Sealaska is an Alaska Native Corporation founded in 1972 and established by the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act.
STS is currently seeking an experienced Hydrogeochemistry/Modeling Technical Specialist to design, direct, review and manage hydrologic and geochemical field studies and groundwater modeling activities and work products associated with the Los Alamos Legacy Cleanup Contract (LLCC) at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration’s Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). This strategic leader will be part of the Tech2 Solutions (Tetra Tech-Sealaska Joint Venture) Project Team for the N3B Los Alamos LLC team, which was awarded a 10-year, $1.3B contract.
The successful candidate will function in a lead role for the LLCC helping to develop site management strategies and play a significant role in the investigation and evaluation of potentially contaminated shallow and deep groundwater in the vadose zone and regional aquifer, and development of remediation strategies and plans. Contaminants of concern include both toxic chemical constituents and radionuclides. This role will also serve in a management capacity for interactions with Los Alamos National Laboratory's site management and operations (M&O) contractor.
Hydrogeochemistry/Modeling and field activities could include: field investigation scoping; development of Data Quality Objectives; work plan development; justification of approaches to LANL, regulators and stakeholders; sampling oversight; data assessment activities; statistical and risk analysis; report preparation; and risk communication.
This lead role requires quantifying the nature and extent of contamination as a result of past releases through a combination of field studies and measurements and numerical models. Duties could also include the review and ability to synthesize hydrogeological and environmental data from field investigations and technical reports; development of conceptual site models including surface water/vadose zone/groundwater water interactions and contamination and lead the development of groundwater flow and transport models to support site characterization and environmental site remediation.
