Clemson Cooperative Extension is seeking applicants for five Area Water Resources Extension Agents positions to be housed in each of the five Extension districts – Upstate, Midlands, Pee Dee, Savannah Valley and Coastal.
Droughts, floods and increasing water demand over the past 10 years have raised concerns about our understanding of South Carolina’s water resources. These five positions are part of a cluster hire that will allow Clemson to support research and extension in statewide programs that will expand our efforts to build baseline measurements of the state’s eight river basins and our aquifer capacities relative to crop production, soil science and hydrogeology, and systems modeling and improve the efficiency of water use for agriculture.
A Bachelor’s degree in a relevant major is required. Master’s degree preferred. A minimum of 2 years of demonstrated work experience and expertise in an applicable field such as, but not limited to, agricultural water conservation, urban water conservation, agricultural irrigation, and pond management.
As the state’s land-grant university, Clemson University is ideally positioned to lead a comprehensive science-based water resource research program to provide objective knowledge about the capacity of our rivers and aquifers. Clemson Extension has statewide programs that address water quality in forested wetlands, efficient use of water for agriculture, and stormwater management. Our faculty members are working collaboratively on crop irrigation systems, forested watershed management, water quality assessment, water treatment and data analysis and modeling of the state’s water resources.
