Seeking leaders for key director positions – TRU Newsroom

TRU Wildfire, in partnership with the BC Wildfire Service, is the university’s response to one of the most pressing issues of our time. It’s a solutions-focused initiative addressing current and future wildfire challenges—and now you can be part of it.

TRU Wildfire is hiring for two positions: Director, TRU Wildfire (Training) and Director, TRU Wildfire (Research, Innovation, Education).

These positions, both located on TRU’s Kamloops campus, will provide the leadership necessary to build the infrastructure of TRU Wildfire for the development and delivery of world-class research, education, training, and innovation. By contributing to the future of wildfire research and learning, you can help develop the next generation of wildfire researchers and leaders.

The posting of these positions follows the April announcement by BC Premier David Eby and the more recent acknowledgement by Minister Bruce Ralston at the Canadian Council of Forest Ministers conference.

“We took a major step to strengthen our capacity to train wildland firefighters and support their long term development and careers. In April, we announced a groundbreaking wildfire training and education centre in British Columbia,” said Minister Ralston.

“We’ll be the first in North America to ladder wildfire training into degree programs and research, all with a specific focus on wildfire. This centre, located in Kamloops, British Columbia, in association with Thompson Rivers University, will take action to grow our local contingent of wildfire firefighters, provide them with cutting edge science and technology, and support their long-term career development here in British Columbia.

“From hands-on field training to development of academic and degree programs, the new centre will be an education destination we hope, for people from British Columbia and nationally and from around the world.”
