Arctic Field Support Engineers Needed - Simon Fraser University
The Simon Fraser University PolyLAB in Vancouver, a unit of the Telematics Research Laboratory, is expecting to hire one or two support engineers, for a short period, to support exciting Canadian national activities in planetary exploration science, in which researchers develop scientific, engineering, and methodological techniques for furthering planetary exploration. The focus will be on understanding planetary surface exploration, especially the human exploration of the Moon and Mars, through supported field activities at planetary analogue field locations and laboratories. The selected person will support systems in this area in a field deployment in an Arctic field camp.
The requirement is to hire personnel who can support SFU's engineering support and management of exploration systems at the Haughton-Mars Project Research Station (HMPRS), on Devon Island, in the Canadian High Arctic. The hiring will be for roughly one month, starting in mid to late June, journeying to the Arctic at the beginning of July, and returning in early August.
