Field, Outreach, and Communications Coordinator
Full time, 1 year contract, possibility for renewal

 

The Hajibabaei Lab at the University of Guelph & Centre for Biodiversity Genomics is looking for a congenial and highly organized person to join the STREAM project. This full-time contract position is initially available for 1 year with the possibility for renewal and would entail the coordination of field work sampling, outreach including social media, writing, and presentations to engage new and existing stakeholders. Requirements include a minimum BSc degree with 2 years of relevant experience in biology/ecology/related science, field work, and/or science communication. An interest in Indigenous culture and science communication is a must.

 

The STREAM project is a Canada-wide project that is ‘Sequencing The Rivers for Environmental Assessment and Monitoring’. In collaboration with Environment and Climate Change Canada and non-governmental organizations, we are implementing a new paradigm in ecosystem assessment to improve the health of Canada’s threatened watersheds https://stream-dna.com/. The Hajibabaei lab conducts cutting edge research in the fields of biodiversity, genomics, and environmental sciences. Our diverse team brings together specialists in molecular biology, bioinformatics, and ecology.

At the University of Guelph, fostering a culture of inclusion is an institutional imperative. The University invites and encourages applications from all qualified individuals, including from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in employment, who may contribute to further diversification of our Institution.

 

The University of Guelph resides on the treaty lands and territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn and work.

Please send your CV and cover letter to Dr. Mehrdad Hajibabaei (mhajibab[at]uoguelph[dot]ca) with “STREAM Field, Outreach, and Communications Coordinator” in the subject line.
