The Position
Staff Associate Engineers perform professional engineering assignments not requiring licensure by the State Board of Professional Engineers & Land Surveyors.
Incumbents possess a degree of knowledge and proficiency sufficient to perform advanced-level work and may provide work direction and training to others. The Division of Water Resources (DWR) is recruiting for a Staff II Associate Engineer to underfill a Professional Engineering (PE) position. Incumbent may progress to the Professional Engineer level upon meeting the minimum qualifications for that job title, with satisfactory performance, and the approval of the appointing authority. Applicants must have an ABET accredited BS engineering degree (or equivalent as defined by the Nevada Board of Professional Engineers). Applicants are expected to have passed the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam (FEE) prepared by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying. If the selected applicant has not yet passed the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam at the time of employment, the incumbent will be expected to take and pass the exam within the first year of employment. If the employee fails to pass the FEE exam within a year, they will be considered for release prior to the end of probation. DWR will work to ensure that the employee who is selected for this position will obtain their license by doing the following: a) If the applicant has already passed the PE exam, then the Division will ensure that the position assigned is completing qualifying engineering work so the required four years of engineering experience can bet met. b) If the applicant has not yet passed the PE exam at the time of employment, the applicant will be expected to take and pass the exam within a four-year time frame. If the applicant fails to take the exam a total of three times, then the applicant will be required to furnish proof that he/she has completed the refresher course as required by the Nevada Board of Professional Engineers (NAC 625.350).
The incumbent will perform basin engineering duties including but not limited to performing technical and statutory review of water right applications; conducting field investigations and dam safety inspections; collecting hydrologic data; analyzing data and writing reports; drafting permit terms, certificates, and rulings; reviewing the work of other technical and engineering staff; and assisting the public daily in-person, by phone, or by e-mail.
