We are seeking a motivated Hydrogeologist for our head office in Vancouver. The successful candidate will have:

  • A post-graduate degree in Hydrogeology or a related discipline.
  • A minimum of 5 years of practical experience in hydrogeology.
  • A minimum of 2 years of experience in numerical modeling of hydrogeological problems using a range of groundwater modeling tools, including SEEP/W, MODFLOW & MT3D, and FEFLOW;

  • Must be eligible for registration with Engineers and Geoscientsts BC, and
  • Excellent communication and technical writing skills.

Experience in contaminant transport and/or geophysics is an asset.

You will join a team of hydrogeologists led by Dr. Christoph Wels that assists mining companies worldwide in managing mine water issues, including mine dewatering, groundwater impact assessment, seepage control and mitigation.  You will be responsible for managing and executing hydrogeological projects in Canada and abroad (Australia, Central and South America), including supervision of drilling programs, conceptual modeling and numerical modeling of groundwater flow and contaminant transport.  

This is a challenging position and will require a well-rounded, ambitious individual who has a strong technical background in hydrogeology, preferably with experience in the mining industry.
