Employment Opportunity: Project Coordinator
The Coastal CURA is a new five-year research project on coastal and marine management, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, as part of its Community-University Research Alliance (CURA) program. Through cooperative research approaches, the Coastal CURA seeks to build the knowledge base and capacity of participating Maritimes communities and coastal organizations to support community involvement in the governance and management of coastal and marine resources.
The Coastal CURA involves a range of partners, including First Nations, community fishing associations, marine resource centres and university researchers. The partners include Acadia First Nation, Bear River First Nation, the Fundy North Fishermen's Association, the Fundy Fixed Gear Council, Lennox Island First Nation, Abegweit First Nation, Bay of Fundy Marine Resource Centre, Saint Mary's University and the University of New Brunswick. Coastal CURA participants will be working together toward the goals of improved effectiveness in the governance of coastal resources, and enhanced community capacity to participate in coastal management, through innovative research and Maritimes-wide networking.
The Coastal CURA seeks a self-motivated, energetic individual to serve as full-time Project Coordinator. The Project Coordinator will be responsible for day-to-day administration, communications and networking for the project, with a diverse set of duties (see below). Candidates should possess relevant work experience in project administration, research support, and/or at the community level. Suitable knowledge of and/or experience in community resource management, familiarity with a university environment, and knowledge of the Maritimes and its coastal areas, will all be assets. This is an annual term position, with the potential for renewal within the time frame of the project. Salary will be commensurate with experience in accordance with the Project budget.
Interested individuals are invited to submit a cover letter, a resume/c.v. and the names and contact information of three references, by e-mail, to Tony Charles, at Saint Mary's University (tony.charles at smu.ca).
