We are seeking a research technician to work as part of the Centre for Biofouling Research. Our fundamental and applied research program explores both marine biofouling (the growth of unwanted organisms on marine infrastructure) and novel low-toxicity approaches to antifouling (the mitigation of biofouling). The technician will help coordinate and participate in several ongoing research projects with respect to biofouling and environmentally-friendly antifouling. The technician will work under the supervision of Dr. Russell Wyeth, helping with many aspects of the CBR’s activities. The technician’s primary role will be to support the successful completion of the projects, working with both the supervisor and students to plan lab and field work, undertake sampling, and, once completed, prepare oral and written communications about the various projects. Administrative tasks in support of the supervisor will also be involved, as well as opportunities to engage with other active research projects.
This position is offered through the CleanTech Internships program, so more details and applications are available here: Environmentally-Safe Antifouling Research Technician
