We provide innovative solutions for foundations, underground construction, earth structures, groundwater resources, and marginal building sites. Our geotechnical engineers and geologists specialize in landslides, sinkholes, mine subsidence, seepage, expansive soils, and seismic activity. We have completed more than 1,000 subsurface and geophysical projects across the U.S. – from small-scale projects to large, complex dams, highways, bridges, and underground structures.


Gannett Fleming's Geotechnical and Dams/Hydraulics team is looking for a Geologist to join our Roseville, CA office to support various hydroelectric clients. Join our team!


As a Geologist, you will be expected to support geologic investigations to characterize and evaluate geologic/geotechnical conditions and to identify geologic factors that could impact the design, construction, and/or long-term performance of engineered structures. Project work will include geologic field reconnaissance mapping to identify and characterize geologic hazards, logging and sampling geotechnical borings, developing geologic models through interpretation of available surface/subsurface data, and preparing technical reports. You will provide assistance with a wide variety of projects, including rockfall evaluation and mitigation, storm damage assessment and repair, post-fire assessment and debris flow mitigation, fault hazard evaluation, and seismic source characterization, geotechnical and structural instrumentation, and water conveyance inspections (canals, tunnels, penstocks).


Responsibilities will include:

  • Compile and synthesize geologic data, including geologic maps, aerial photographs, construction records, and other background document information.
  • Perform geologic field reconnaissance and mapping for the identification of geologic hazards and site characterization.
  • Prepare field exploration work plans and job hazard assessments.
  • Participate in subsurface exploration programs, including logging of soil borings, rock coring, fault trenching and test pits.
  • Apply standard practices and techniques, interpret and correlate geologic and laboratory data, prepare geologic cross-sections and maps.
  • Prepare technical reports or sections of reports.
  • Perform construction observation activities including site grading/earthwork, foundation preparation, instrumentation installation, scaling of rock slopes, and rockfall mitigation measure installation.
  • Adhere to project quality assurance/quality control, and health and safety protocols.
  • Perform periodic client coordination and attends project meetings
