Stantec Senior / Principal Marine Water Quality Modeller in Manchester, United Kingdom

Redefine your Personal Best.

Have you ever thought about joining a multidisciplinary team where you get to work in a diverse, welcoming, and fun environment, on amazing projects, whilst starting or continuing your journey to becoming professionally qualified? Then look no further than Stantec. We currently have an exciting opportunity for a Senior / Principal Marine Water Quality Modeller to join us at any of our UK offices.

Stantec is working in partnership with water companies across the UK and Ireland and with a wider stakeholder community to develop effective and sustainable wastewater solutions driven by the environmental needs of our inland waters and coast. The challenges are substantial as water quality standards tighten and we consider a wider range of systems and environmental processes. This requires an integrated team that can work across the water cycle to meet industry-wide efficiency and environmental challenges.

Key to our growth is the continuous development of our expertise in understanding the context of water quality within environmental systems. Through integration with other expertise in urban and natural catchments, we work with a range of stakeholders to help clients and communities to develop solutions that deliver environmental performance sustainably and efficiently. This is a great opportunity for an experienced and imaginative water quality modeller to join an ambitious expert team in a role that will provide plenty of scope for technical development and career progression in the coming years.

You will be working within a core of scientific and engineering experts supporting a range of clients from the water sector primarily but also the energy and infrastructure sectors. Together we will identify pollution sources, pathways and receptors and develop solutions for natural and urban catchments.

This position offers the right person a genuine opportunity to improve our environments and communities. We are looking for driven individuals who think differently and love to challenge conventional thinking. Our expanding project portfolio identifies water quality solutions that meet community needs including reducing carbon and improving biodiversity.

About You

You will be degree qualified in physics, mathematics, or engineering, ideally with experience within the water industry and a chartered member of a relevant professional institution.

You should have good understanding of numerical modelling equations and discretisation, 2D mesh generation, Linux and scripting languages such as Python.

You should be experienced in the usage of numerical modelling software (e.g. MIKE, Delft3D, OpenFOAM, ADCIRC, Telemac), with demonstrable application in a relevant field. This could be in the form of modelling one or more of the following: hydrodynamics, multiphase, particle tracking, water quality and chemical processes. Ideally, you will have a basic understanding of physico-chemical water quality and the associated regulatory standards for fresh and / or marine waters.

As an experienced professional, you are expected to work independently and with minimal supervision.

You will also have the necessary skills and experience to liaise with a broad range of stakeholders where you will be working closely with clients, and other professional staff across multi-disciplinary business groups.

We are proud of our culture. We have an open, friendly and professional environment where ideas are shared, and opportunities seized. We know our continuing success and development depend on yours, so we go all the way when it comes to giving you the support you need to be the very best. If you want to work on exciting and diverse projects that make a difference in people’s lives – then a career at Stantec could be the one for you!
