Our Civil Group offers an array of exciting career opportunities for the best IT, energy, logistics and engineering professionals. 

Leidos is seeking an Environmental Task Leader under the SERAS Contract that will support a team that provides Air Monitoring and Sampling at Hazardous Waste Sites, Environmental Emergency Responses, Vapor Intrusion sites and other events or sites to ensure public health and safety to US EPA’s Environmental Response Team (ERT).  Environmental multimedia (liquid and solid) sampling is also possible using EPA, NIOSH, OSHA or ASTM methods.

  • Maintain records and prepare clear and concise reports.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with real-time air monitoring instrumentation or air sampling equipment.
