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

  • An undergraduate degree in Earth Sciences/Geology or a related discipline;
  • A post-graduate degree in hydrogeology with a specialization in groundwater modeling through course work or thesis project;
  • A minimum 2 to 5 years of experience in groundwater flow & contaminant transport modeling using industry standard codes, such as MODFLOW, MT3D and/or FEFLOW.
  • Eligibility for registration with Engineers and Geoscientists BC.

Experience with geological modelling software, e.g. Leapfrog, EVS, and programming experience with Fortran, MS VBA, or Python is desirable.

You will join a team of hydrogeologists led by Dr. Christoph Wels that assists mining companies worldwide in managing mine water issues, including mine de-watering, groundwater quality impacts due to Acid Rock Drainage (ARD), and seepage control and mitigation.
