Please distribute the following information to any past/ present students who may be interested in state employment here in Springfield, IL. The job posting below is an entry position into my section in the Bureau of Water. The posting below is pretty vague on what the primary job duties are, but I’d be more than happy to speak with anyone who wants more information regarding the job. Basically, we need someone with some expertise in toxicology, fish biology, or stream ecology. This job as well as any other postings may be found at https://agency.governmentjobs.com/illinois/default.cfm?clearsearch=1. Additionally, we are losing several of our Springfield region stream biologists to retirement so within a year I’d expect some postings in our surface water section as well. Even if the job below is of little interest, it wouldn’t hurt to begin the application process early to get vetted through IL CMS and get on the list of qualified applicants.
