While a range of different tasks will be undertaken, the successful candidate will be expected to develop project proposals, create new strategic partnerships, lead and coordinate projects, attend meetings, build capacity, supervise students, and engage with those poised to benefit from the program of research. Additionally, the successful candidate will also participate in internal service to the YRC and YC, may also represent the YRC and YC at local, regional and national meetings as directed by YRC leadership.

      • Project management, oversight and coordination
      • Supervision of students and research assistants
      • Developing and delivering written reports, presentations, community engagement, and other communications pieces
      • Developing partnerships internal and external to the YRC and YC
      • Advising the Associate Vice President Research Development on growth and direction with respect to social sciences research within the YRC and at YC

      Qualifications:

      • Experience with community-based, partner-led research, especially with Indigenous groups
      • Supervisory experience
      • Excellent written and oral communication skills
      • Experience developing budgets and workplans, and with fiduciary oversight
      • Proven record of research communication and acceptance, via publication, conference presentation, community engagement, or other similar medium
      • Proven record of partnership development and collaboration in cross-disciplinary, partner-based research

      • The ideal candidate will have experience working independently and as part of a team
      • Willingness to travel throughout the Yukon and across the Canadian North
      • Valid Driver’s license

      Primary Location: Yukon Research Centre, Yukon College, Whitehorse
      Term position to March 31, 2019

      ABOUT THE CIRC: There has been a tremendous increase in resource development across British Columbia in recent years. The bulk of the activity is located in the northern half of the province, within the service area of the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC). The Cumulative Impacts Research Consortium (CIRC) is led by UNBC’s three research institutes: the Community Development Institute, the Health Research Institute and the Natural Resources and Environmental Studies Institute. Leveraging this expertise, CIRC staff take a holistic, integrative perspective in considering the cumulative community, environmental, and health impacts of resource development, as informed by the experiences of communities across northern BC. The CIRC is an open, central venue for dialogue and discussion about issues broadly related to resource development that matter to people, communities, Indigenous communities, organizations, businesses, industries, researchers, and governments. The three main objectives of the CIRC include: (a) fostering an integrative understanding of the increasingly complex challenges associated with the cumulative impacts of resource development; (b) providing a platform for community dialogue and engagement around the issue of cumulative impacts; and (c) conducting research that responds to local issues, supports positive action, and empowers communities with solutions-oriented tools and resources.

      JOB DESCRIPTION: The ideal candidate for this position will have strong organizational, interpersonal and communication skills, and previous research experience. Demonstrated experience in research management (writing grants and supporting the implementation of research) is required. Reporting to the CIRC Steering Committee and working collaboratively with the CIRC Project Lead and CIRC Communications Lead, the Research Associate will:

      • Lead CIRC operations and logistics by liaising with the UNBC Office of Research, UNBC Office of Advancement and Communications, and other relevant internal bodies with an eye to pursuing internal funding opportunities; exploring and responding to relevant external funding opportunities and coordinating with UNBC faculty; develop a CIRC Operations Strategy with regards to human resources capacity, long-term funding, and building and maintaining CIRC networks and relationships across northern BC.
      • Assist with internal and external communications for the CIRC including: contributing to the continued maintenance of the CIRC Advisory Committee; supporting internal communications among the three research UNBC institutes and their Research Managers; delivering presentations to a diverse set of audiences (academic, government, industry, public); designing, convening, and managing community dialogues and discussions across northern BC (NB. Experience with community-based research is an asset).
      • Continue to build and convene a cross-sector network of Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, industry, government, policymakers, regional organizations, researchers, and postsecondary institutions across the province.
      • Maintain and actively support existing partnerships and collaborations by optimizing research synergies and complementary funding opportunities among CIRC and related research projects and collaborations.
      • Support CIRC research activities on an as needed basis, including contributing to research grant development or the production of reports and publications relating to the CIRC.

      KEY QUALIFICATIONS: The successful candidate will have a graduate degree from an accredited university in the field of natural resource studies, the health sciences, community development, or equivalent, and a minimum of two years of experience in research and project management. An equivalent combination of education and experience may also be considered. The successful candidate should be able to demonstrate:

      • Experience managing multi-year projects and/or networks that involve multiple partners from different sectors and institutions.
