The Illinois State Water Survey of the Prairie Research Institute at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and has been a leader in the study of water resources for more than a century. Our research and service programs provide citizens, industries, and government agencies at all levels with timely, science-based information and analyses necessary to manage our water resources wisely for economic development and a sustainable environment. The Surface Water Hydrology & Hydraulics Section mission is to investigate and understand stream and watershed processes to provide state-of-the-art scientific and engineering analyses to policymakers, planners, and resource managers in the State of Illinois and beyond so they can develop and implement sustainable rivers, streams, lakes, and watershed programs based on the best scientific and engineering analyses.
The Section is seeking a Sediment Hydraulic Engineer to carry out applied research erosion, sediment transport, and sedimentation in Upper Midwest watersheds and riverine systems.
