Are you interested in a career in science? Find out about some of the careers that are in action at BC CAHS. If you are interested in working in a laboratory setting doing scientific research on the topic of aquatic life, then BC CAHS may be the place for you. As well, our staff go out in the field to work on their research and diagnostic projects. You could find yourself at a local hatchery or even on a boat out on the ocean near the coast of Vancouver Island.
Our scientists generally have educational backgrounds in university level science. As well, we have staff that specialize in an area of study such as epidemiology, marine sciences, microbiology, oceanography and veterinary sciences.
BC CAHS does have students come to complete work terms frequently – both paid and volunteer positions for a variety of lengths of time (a few days to several months). We do predict that the research and diagnostic services that BC CAHS offers will continue to be in demand over the next several years as there are many unknowns still when it comes to the ocean and its inhabitants.
BC CAHS regularly posts calls for employment on this website in the Careers - Current Postings page. Watch our website for upcoming employment opportunites as they become available.
BC CAHS exists to support healthy aquatic ecosystems and thereby promote economic stability, cultural values and environmental integrity in coastal communities.
