Riverkeeper Job Posting

Dear Colleague:

Riverkeeper has an opening for a Staff Attorney who will immediately work with senior attorneys on Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant litigation and on other pressing environmental cases. This is a unique opportunity for an attorney who is interested in joining one of the most effective and distinguished environmental advocacy organizations in the country. Riverkeeper is looking for a qualified, experienced environmental litigator and advocate with an exceptional commitment to the environment and a strong academic and experiential learning record.

The Staff Attorney will expand Riverkeeper's presence and effectiveness in the mid to upper Hudson River watershed and the New York City drinking water watershed through litigation, advocacy, public education, and public outreach in order to advance Riverkeeper's policy goals of fishable, swimmable waterways. The position requires significant travel throughout the Hudson River Valley, and a commitment to attend meetings and appointments that may be outside of normal business hours.

It is a pivotal moment in Riverkeeper history. In 2016, we will celebrate our 50th year of working on clean water and environmental issues. In 1966, Riverkeeper was established as an independent, member supported environmental organization whose mission is to protect the ecological integrity of the Hudson River and its watershed, and to safeguard the drinking water supply of nine million New Yorkers. For more information, visit www.riverkeeper.org.

We look forward to receiving submissions from qualified candidates.


John Parker
