The successful candidate will have:

  • At least two years of experience in a similar role at a consulting company and/or government agency.
  • Basic experience in geological mapping and 3D geological modelling, e.g., in Leapfrog or equivalent modelling software.

You will join a team of hydrogeologists and geochemists 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), surface water management, and seepage control and mitigation.

You will work on mining projects in Canada, Australia, and South America where you will be responsible for GIS aspects of our projects. Recent experience and expertise with core ESRI GIS software, including ArcGIS Desktop (ArcMap or ArcGIS Pro), GlobalMapper, scripting (e.g. Python, R), image analysis (e.g. aerial photos, LiDAR, satellite imagery) and extensions such as Spatial Analyst would be an asset.
