Chagrin River Watershed Partners is looking for two talented and motivated people to join our team. The positions are open to University of Akron undergraduate students, who are qualified and interested.

The Project Managers will work with communities, counties, park districts and watershed organizations on flooding, erosion, and other land use issues.   Successful candidates will help lead watershed protection, restoration and storm water management projects in the Chagrin River watershed and across Northeast Ohio through the Central Lake Erie Basin Collaborative.

Project Manager #1 will have a key focus on developing residential and commercial green infrastructure incentive programs and storm water fee credit programs.  

Project Manager #2 will focus on Collaborating to Protect Ohio's Healthy Central Lake Erie Basin Watersheds, a project funded by the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities Healthy Watershed Consortium grant program. 

Both Project Managers will work with communities to protect and restore streams and wetlands, manage storm water, minimize flooding and erosion, and enhance outdoor recreational opportunities. Both Project Managers will also assist communities with comprehensive planning, watershed protection ordinances and NPDES Phase II Storm water Management Programs.  Candidates should indicate in their cover letter the position(s) for which they would like to be considered.

Summa Health System, Employment Opportunity:

From: Melissa Maddi: Research Program Director of Orthopaedic Surgery at Summa Health System.  

We are interested in obtaining the assistance of undergraduate students who would be interested in helping out on manuscripts for publication.  At this level, we would provide them with a detailed outline (written by our residents and attending physician), where then the undergrad student along with the assistance of medical students would perform the literature search and write the first draft of the paper (review articles, book chapters, meta-analysis, etc).  

Obviously, if accepted for publication their name would be listed!  We feel this is the great way for students to get exposure to medical research and build up their CVs for medical school applications.  This will also help us push more projects through our pipeline.  

Feel free to email or call if you have any question.
