- Schedule and track project progress, budgets and the completion of deliverables.
- Compile, manage and interpret hydrogeologic, water use, water quality, and other environmental data.
- Draft reports for submission to regulatory agencies or clients.
- Interact with a multidisciplinary team to assess potential project-related and/or climate change-related impacts on water resources and environmental values. This may include supporting the coordination, implementation and/or assessment of results of other water resource (e.g., hydrometric, surface water quality, climate, aquatic, fish) monitoring programs.
- Mentor junior staff to develop their technical, managerial and professional skills.
Education and Experience:
Minimum requirements for this position include:
- B.Sc. or M.Sc. (preferred) in geology, environmental sciences or engineering with a combination of academic training (e.g., thesis, coursework) and five years of project experience in hydrogeology. Alternatively, a geologist with a background in mining and experience conducting geotechnical and groundwater field programs with an interest in groundwater may also be considered.
- Currently registered, or eligible for registration with APEGA.
