PacMARA is seeking a half-time Program Manager to be based in Victoria, who will work with our Science Advisor to advance PacMARA’s program both in BC and internationally.

The Pacific Marine Analysis and Research Association (PacMARA) is an impartial and independent network of researchers and practitioners, working together to share and coordinate information, develop high-quality research and analyses, provide training, and fill the critical gaps in our knowledge of British Columbia’s complex coastal and marine environment. Our membership includes interested individuals and groups drawn from government, First Nations, academia, the private sector and environmental non-governmental organizations.

The Program Manager would represent PacMARA locally, participating in activities related to marine ecosystem based management, marine spatial planning, and associated science policy development. He or she would also assist the Science Advisor in organization and delivery of PacMARA training courses and publications internationally.

This challenging opportunity would best suit a highly motivated, confident, individual who is looking to make a significant contribution to both the BC and global marine EBM domain.

Formal qualifications, knowledge and experience requirements include a university degree in marine ecology, biology or resource management (Masters or PhD preferred) and 3-5 years proven experience in collaboration, partnership development and relationship building in a resource management context.

This position may eventually transition to full-time.

PacMARA Vice President
