Are you next to join ddms’ outstanding Environmental Chemistry Services team?

An Environmental Chemist may manage more than one project and/or client at a time. All Environmental Chemists may also be expected to collectively serve as part of the business development arm of ddms and are responsible for growing the footprint of their projects (when it benefits the client), obtaining new projects from existing clients and identifying and retaining new clients through networking, conferences, and other professional opportunities.

Environmental chemists may serve as projects managers (PMs) for environmental chemistry projects, overseeing all financial, contractual, and technical aspects of client (non-ddms managed data) and internal projects (ddms managed data). As a PM, the Environmental Chemists may be responsible for the satisfaction of each of their clients and for delivering ddms’ work products to specifications, on time, and within budget. Environmental Chemists may oversee project teams, which may include one or more ddms data analysts, technicians, and/or other Environmental Chemists. If this seems like an opportunity in which you can both thrive and find satisfaction, please apply.
