We are seeking a driven and resourceful person with minimum of five years of relevant policy and technical experience, strong analytical skills, a solid work ethic and the tenacity needed to solve Alberta’s most prominent energy challenges.

This role will require engagement with diverse stakeholders, including multiple levels of government, industry, health groups, communities and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to support the development and implementation of ambitious and effective federal climate policies in Canada.

Roles and Responsibilities

  • Lead and manage research projects from inception to delivery
  • Develop and support implementation of strong public policy to support environmental protection in Alberta
  • Conduct thorough technical, quantitative and qualitative analyses of environmental impacts of oilsands, unconventional oil and gas and fossil-fuel-based electricity sectors

  • Create high-quality project deliverables, including reports, presentations, briefing notes and funding proposals
  • Develop and maintain constructive relationships with bureaucrats in the Government of Alberta, other ENGOS, First Nations, the private sector, and governments
