Interested in joining a great team of materials testing professionals who help ensure that Connecticut’s roads and bridges are safe and durable?
A main goal of the State of Connecticut Department of Transportation (DOT) is to build safe and durable roads and structures. The use of quality materials is a critical factor in meeting that goal. Engineers and technicians within the DOT’s nationally accredited laboratory in the Division of Materials Testing:
- Use the latest technology and techniques to test aggregates, concrete, steel, and asphalt
- Evaluate material sources used throughout the State
- Analyze trends in test results and take a proactive stand to avoid the use of substandard materials
- Review, evaluate, and approve Portland Cement concrete and asphalt mix designs using state-of-the-art technologies
- Review drawings and inspect complex structural steel and precast concrete girders being built in facilities throughout the Northeast
We are currently accepting applications for Transportation Technician Trainee positions in the Division of Materials Testing in the Office of Construction. Positions may be based in Rocky Hill or Thomaston. The work locations for these positions will be determined based on the availability of the selected candidates and the DOT’s needs. Upon successful completion of the 1 year training program, incumbents may be promoted to the target class of Transportation Technician. With successful performance, incumbents may advance to the job class of Transportation Materials Technician 2 upon qualification. These positions are full time, 40 hours per week and are in the P-4 (Engineering and Scientific) bargaining unit.
Applicants who will possess an Associate’s degree by May of 2021 in Construction Management, Engineering Technology, Construction Technology, Civil Engineering Technology or closely related field, are encouraged to apply for this posting.
