Canada’s lead test facility for in-stream tidal energy technology Fundy Ocean Research Center for Energy (FORCE) is recruiting for Environmental Programs Director who will oversee all monitoring programs at the center.

Reporting to the General Manager, the Environmental Programs Director will be tasked with managing environmental effects monitoring, working with advisory committees, and permitting and approvals.

Also, the successful candidate is expected to support FORCE’s research program management and implementation, as well as stakeholder engagement activities, including presentations and meetings with fishers and First Nations.

The deadline to apply for the position has been set for June 30, 2017.

As a non-profit research lab, FORCE collaborates with government, industry, academia, marine users and the public to better understand if tidal energy technology can play an effective, sustainable role in Canada’s energy future.

A key component of FORCE’s mandate is environmental stewardship – as tidal turbines are deployed in the Minas Passage in the Bay of Fundy, FORCE is committed to understanding what effects they may have on the environment, and reporting those findings to the public.
