Hydrologist/Goldsim Modeler

Website Robertson Geo

We are seeking a motivated hydrologist/GoldSim modeler for our office in Vancouver or Nanaimo. The successful candidate will have:

  • A Bachelor’s degree in water resources engineering, hydrology or relevant discipline;
  • A graduate degree (M.Sc.) in hydrology, preferably with a specialization in modeling through course work or thesis project;
  • 2 to 5 years of experience in a similar role in the mining industry, preferably using rainfall-runoff models and GoldSim for project work.
  • Eligibility for registration with Engineers and Geoscientists BC.

Familiarity with mine water quality issues, geochemistry (ARD/ML), and contaminant load balance modeling would be an asset but is not required.

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 primarily responsible for developing and maintaining water and load balance models in GoldSim and interpreting hydrological data. Some opportunities for travel within Canada and overseas will be available.

This is a challenging position that requires a meticulous and well-organized individual with a strong technical background in hydrology and a willingness to work with a team of engineers, hydrogeologists, hydrologists, and environmental geochemists. You will be well-supported by an experienced hydrologist (35+ years of experience) and can expect to receive excellent opportunities to advance your career and industry-leading benefits and salary.
