DFO is a career destination of choice for aquatic science professionals. With research facilities across the country, our science staff are at the cutting edge of aquatic sciences.
DFO is a science-based department that relies on a vibrant science program to provide data, information, and expert scientific analysis and advice to support decision-making and policy and program delivery. Our Ecosystem and Oceans Science Sector (the "Science" Sector) includes a large number of science staff who possess a broad range of expertise in ocean and freshwater research.
As recently announced, DFO is undertaking a recruitment campaign to staff a range of science positions, across the country, in the following core areas of research:
. Assessment of aquatic resources (including fish stocks, marine mammals and species-at-risk)
. Dynamics of aquatic invasive species
. Aquaculture-environmental interactions
. Ecosystem health, including approaches for ecosystem modelling and ecosystem-based management
. Conservation management of aquatic biological diversity
. Ecosystem stressors and evaluating their impacts on aquatic ecosystems
. Biological, chemical, physical, and fisheries oceanography, both coastal and offshore
The Recruitment Campaign will take place in phases between now and early fall 2016, with various testing and/or document submission requirements as the process moves forward. As part of this process, DFO officials will be holding job fairs in early fall 2016, which will include in-person interviews. Candidates who pass the initial screening phase will receive an Asset Qualifications Questionnaire which will be used to further assess their Education and Experience (Asset) qualifications. Candidates will also receive further details about the in-person interviews/job fairs and other assessments approaches (e.g., written tests, online tests, reference checking, etc.) that may be used to assess their qualifications such as Knowledge, Abilities, and Personal Suitability.
We look forward to hearing from you!
