    • Evaluating, interpreting and integrating a variety of datasets including geology, borehole geophysical data, hydraulic testing, groundwater / rock porewater chemistry and pressure data, into a cohesive conceptual model of a field site.

Key Experiences

  • Progressive leadership experience in engineering and environmental consulting, with a special focus on geology, hydrogeology, geological or environmental engineering, or a related discipline.
  • Post-graduate degree (M.Sc. or Ph.D.) in hydrogeology or in a related discipline.
  • A valid license to practice engineering (P.Eng) or geoscience (P.Geo) in the province of Ontario.
  • A history of running jobs in the field and of conducting field work across the province of Ontario (some travel required for this role).
  • Experience in petroleum engineering well design and construction and experience with subsurface (water, rock, soil) field testing equipment are considered assets.
  • A track record of success in the management of complex hydrogeological and environmental projects and project teams, with an impressive history of strong client relationships.
  • An excellent understanding of environmental regulations and permitting processes related to geoscience projects.
  • A history as an exceptional communicator, with both technical and non-technical stakeholders.
  • A strong level of comfort and proficiency in terms of software and related technical skills.
