Environmental Science Recruitment Tour, Featuring

Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and BOEMRE Director Michael Bromwich,
Visits Tulane Law School, April 13

Ken Salazar , United States Secretary of the Interior, and   Michael R. Bromwich , Director, U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) , will speak to students and faculty at Tulane University Law School (6329 Freret Street, Room 110) on Wednesday, April 13, 2011, between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.  Salazar and Bromwich will address the critical challenge of ensuring the safe and responsible development of oil and natural gas resources in the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). The presentation is part of a nationwide recruitment initiative conducted by BOEMRE, a bureau in the U.S. Department of the Interior and the federal agency responsible for managing the nation’s natural gas, oil and other mineral resources on the OCS, to recruit students from the nation’s top colleges and universities for careers in public service.

During   a keynote address at the bureau’s Information Transfer Meeting (ITM) in New Orleans  March 22, 2011 , Director Bromwich said the tour   would focus on “ some of the nation’s finest environmental programs located in universities across the country.” Scheduled to visit 12 schools throughout April and early May, the tour aims to educate students of the reforms the bureau and department are making in response to Deepwater Horizon and promote the exciting opportunities a career in BOEMRE represents. 

“As we work to elevate the role of science in our decision-making, we must attract top-flight environmental scientists to conduct scientific studies, complete legally-mandated environmental reviews, and fill important positions in environmental compliance,” said Bromwich. “These aggressive recruitment efforts underscore our seriousness about environmental issues and reflect our emphasis on science in decision-making.”

BOEMRE will be hiring environmental scientists in the coming months to do work in fields ranging from environmental studies to National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) review to environmental compliance—all of which are critical to the balanced development of offshore resources. As part of the bureau’s ongoing reorganization, the role of environmental review and analysis will be strengthened through the creation of a first-ever Chief Environmental Officer, who will be responsible for ensuring that environmental concerns are appropriately balanced in leasing and planning decisions and for helping set the scientific agenda relative to our oceans. In addition, an important part of the reorganization involves the creation for the first time of a new environmental compliance and enforcement function.

This event is co-hosted by Tulane University Law School and the School of Science and Engineering.
