The Drinking Water Research Group (DWRG) is a collaboration between Profs. Bob Andrews, Ron Hofmann, and Susan Andrews at the Department of Civil and Mineral Engineering, University of Toronto. We work with partners from industry and government on a wide range of projects related to municipal drinking water. The Group includes approximately 25 graduate students, Post-Doctoral Fellows, and Research Managers and Associates.
The Drinking Water Research Group in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Toronto is looking to hire a contract chemistry laboratory technician effective immediately, for an initial period of approximately 4 months, with the potential to evolve into a full-time position. The work will be conducted in the Environmental Engineering laboratory on the St. George campus (downtown Toronto).
The tasks involve performing common water quality analyses as well as certain specific analyses requiring gas and liquid chromatography, and mass spectrometry.
The successful candidate will have basic experience in working in a chemistry lab. A bachelor’s or technical college degree in chemistry, environmental science, or the equivalent, is expected. Training on the required tasks will be provided.
Due to laboratory capacity restrictions during to the pandemic, this position will not be full time and will be paid on an hourly basis commensurate to the candidate’s education and experience. It is expected that there will be roughly 25-30 hours of work per week, until lab capacity restrictions are lifted. The ability to work flexible hours (evening, weekends) will be viewed as beneficial, and may increase the likelihood of being able to work for more hours per week.
Please send resume, covering letter and transcripts for review to our Administrative Research Manager, Jennifer Lee.
