We need your skills!
The Centre for Indigenous Environmental Resources (CIER) invites applicants for the position of Research Associate.
The successful candidate will be keen to join our team to plan and conduct sound physical and social scientific primary and secondary research and project implementation in the areas of climate policy, climate change adaptation and mitigation and species at risk as they relate to Indigenous communities. The role of Research Associate is best suited for an individual that is able to work closely and collaboratively with a project manager and the rest of the CIER team to discuss and plan project tasks and then is a motivated self-starter in accomplishing project work.
As a national First Nation directed environmental non-profit organization with charitable status, CIER’s mission is to work in partnership with Indigenous nations to support and build sustainable Indigenous communities and a healthy environment. We conduct research and provide training to build sustainable communities and protect lands and waters. CIER is very interested in people with a background that reflects decolonization and community empowerment, who are comfortable working with a team with people of diverse backgrounds. As an organisation, we work towards reconciliation with Indigenous Nations and non-Indigenous allies. We are a team of like-minded individuals who strive to build environmental capacity in and with Indigenous community partners.
CIER personnel often work in a virtual office setting. This position might include travelling to remote communities (when it is safe to do so).
Nice to Have
Given the virtual nature of CIERs work, the successful candidate must have access to a secure and reliable internet connection and a laptop with fully functional WIFI capability. A valid class 5 license is required.
Salary is commensurate with qualifications and is negotiable. Although preference will be given to Indigenous applicants (including First Nations, Metis and Inuit), all qualified candidates are encouraged to apply. This is a fulltime, 6-month position with a possibility for extension.
