The candidate will be a key team member working on multiple product/technology development projects, and should be able to demonstrate a good understanding of relevant electrical design and engineering concepts.
The Fisheries Technician Internship will provide hands-on applied experience in environmental monitoring and assessment of fisheries-related issues. Specifically, we will be conducting fisheries and entomology impact assessments throughout Saskatchewan for which the intern will be directly mentored and responsible for executing and managing components of the activities. This will provide the intern with advanced study design, data analysis, and writing skills through the course of the year. Further, as there is a strong community relationship component to this work the intern will get experience communicating the monitoring and assessment results of our activities to First Nations groups and stakeholders they are working for.
You will be part of an integrated team of software developers, hardware engineers and data scientists. You will be developing and executing advanced data processing and performing analytics for our TGI software platform
Bio Products Development Intern
Transformational technologies are progressing rapidly and many are near to being adopted on a commercial scale. West Fraser is interested in identifying and evaluating technologies and processes that will have application to our integrated forest products business. We are looking for an individual who will work with our corporate and mill resources to investigate bio-solution opportunities that may provide economic value implementing for our business.
The Bio-products Development Intern position will initially be at the Hinton Pulp Mill , but may require travel to other mill sites in BC and Alberta. The individual will report to the Hinton Evironmental Superintendent under direction from the corporate Manager, Energy and Bio-product development.
Rapid technological advances have enabled measurement of chemical and physical changes in lakes and rivers at high frequency, and in near-real time. This sensor-based technology enables a new understanding of the rapidity of change in aquatic environments, and effects of numerous human activities including agriculture and hydroelectricity.
4-years experience in mechanical design.
Experience with hydraulic systems, screw conveyors, chain conveyors, and structural steel
Requires the technical knowledge necessary to complete 3D mechanical design.
Requires CAD design skills, including 2D and 3D experience. Solid Works experience is required.
Requires the ability to be accurate and thorough, to be able to handle more than one task at any time, to be able to work well with people from various areas.
Requires excellent written and verbal communication skills.
Drainage of agricultural lands is an important practice which helps increase yields, and profitability. Yet, the associated loss of wetlands can have important environmental implications, including effects on downstream water quality. As a part of a large, multidisciplinary project aimed at fostering more sustainable water resources in the prairies, the successful intern will work on aggregating existing data, and performing new measurements, and experiments to understand the role of wetlands in nutrient retention, and consequences of wetland drainage. The intern will work extensively with faculty, a project manager, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows, gaining training in instrumental analysis, experimental design, and data management. The program will aim to understand how varied wetland cover, combined with wet-dry cycles affect nutrient transport, and what mitigation options exist to help reduce nutrient export.
