      Waste Program - Deadline to apply 2/17

      Official announcement can be found at www.ECO.org

      752 - San Francisco, CA





      Sponsor: Environmental Protection Agency





      Workplace: Environmental Protection Agency





      Program: ECO/EPA





      Description:

      The ECO associate will train with the Tribal Solid Waste Team in their
      efforts
      to support comprehensive waste management strategies on over 140 Tribal
      lands
      throughout California, Arizona, and Nevada.  Focus areas of the Tribal
      Solid
      Waste Team include illegal dumping prevention and cleanup programs,
      recycling
      and composting programs, landfill compliance assistance programs, market

      stimulation for recyclables in and around Tribal lands, building Tribal

      environmental capacity, and solid waste code and policy development.  The

      training opportunity will enhance the student's research and outreach
      skills, as
      s/he participates in projects including but not limited to:





      Tribal Solid Waste Database Updates and Investigating Database Changes --
      Become
      familiar with the Tribal Team database of dump closures, tribes with
      collection
      systems, recycling programs, and solid waste management plans.   The ECO

      associate will have the opportunity to accompany an EPA staff person on at
      least
      one site visit.





      The ECO associate will learn from EPA staff in other waste programs,
      including
      the Underground Storage Tanks and Hazardous Waste programs and observe
      their
      work with integrated information/maps on the universe of RCRA facilities

      impacting tribal lands. Assorted Research Projects:





      * Research Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) programs in rural areas to
      determine
      how they could be implemented successfully on Tribal lands.  Information

      gathered would ultimately assist in the development of a Region 9 HHW
      website.




      * Research recycling markets in AZ, CA, and NV, specifically in rural
      areas
      and/or near Tribal lands.





      The Associate will gain an increased understanding of Tribal environmental
      and
      specific solid waste issues and will benefit from the opportunity to train
      and
      interact with the Tribal Solid Waste Team as well as key stakeholders in
      local,
      state, and federal governments, Tribal government and environmental staff,
      and
      non-profits.





      Qualifications:

      Essential skills include the ability to:

      * Communicate effectively orally and in writing with a diverse group of
      people;
      * Manage separate concurrent projects and meet associated deadlines;

      * Analyze information, develop options, and make recommendations to
      support
      decisions;

      * Coordinate and work collaboratively as part of a team to accomplish
      specific
      goals; and

      * Research topics and respond to public inquiries.







      Basic computer skills, including word processing and familiarity with the

      Internet are required.  Familiarity with database programs and GIS mapping

      ECO Associates cannot work in the same office as any relative who is an
      EPA
      employee. This means they cannot work in the same supervisory (management)
      chain
      as their relative, and that they also cannot work for a subordinate of
      their
      relative. ECO Associates must work in a totally separate and unrelated
      project
      from that of a relative. Interns must disclose information about any
      relatives
      employed at the Agency, including their name, office, title, and contact

      information. Former employees of EPA are not eligible for the program
      within two
      years of employment at EPA.
