About the Position


?Conduct hydrological assessments: Perform comprehensive hydrological assessments of lakes, including water balance calculations, rainfall-runoff modelling, and water flow analysis to understand the existing water dynamics and potential issues affecting lake ecosystems.

?Collect and analyse data: Design and execute field surveys to collect hydrological data such as water levels, flow rates, sedimentation rates, and water quality parameters. Analyse the collected data using statistical and hydrological modelling techniques.

?Assess water quality: Evaluate water quality parameters, including nutrient levels, dissolved oxygen, pH, and pollutant concentrations. Identify potential sources of pollution and assess the impact on lake ecosystems.

?Develop lake rejuvenation strategies: Collaborate with interdisciplinary teams (Civil engineers, Environmentalists, GIS Analysts) to develop and implement lake rejuvenation strategies. Use hydrological models and simulations to assess the effectiveness of various management practices, such as sediment dredging, nutrient reduction measures, and water level regulation.

?Environmental impact assessment: Conduct environmental impact assessments of proposed lake rejuvenation projects. Identify potential risks and develop mitigation plans to minimize adverse effects on the ecosystem, surrounding communities, and water resources.

?Stakeholder engagement: Collaborate with government agencies, local communities, and other stakeholders to gather inputs, address concerns, and ensure their participation in lake rejuvenation programs.

? Provide expert advice and communicate scientific findings in a clear and concise manner.

Mandatory Qualification and Experience:

? A master's degree in hydrology, water resources management, or a related field.

? Proven experience of minimum 2 years in hydrological modelling, data analysis, and water quality assessments.

?Strong knowledge of hydrological concepts, techniques, and modelling tools (e.g., The Hydrologic Modelling System (HEC-HMS) HEC-HMS, MODFLOW).

?Familiarity with GIS software (QGIS/ARCGIS) and its application to hydrological analysis.

?Understanding of lake ecosystems, water pollution sources, and restoration techniques.

?Excellent analytical, problem-solving, and critical thinking abilities.

?Effective communication skills to convey complex scientific information to diverse audiences.

?Ability to work independently and collaborate effectively in a multidisciplinary team environment.
