Founded in 1998, the Petroleum Technology Research Centre (PTRC) is a not-for-profit organization that fosters research and development into enhanced oil recovery and carbon storage.

Their mandate includes expanding research capacity in Saskatchewan and Canada through projects that address the challenges faced by the oil and gas industry.

The CEO will work to build an organizational culture which fosters high performing teams and strives to deliver on its mandate in an efficient and effective manner.  The CEO is responsible for the communication and marketing of all activities within the PTRC to internal and external stakeholders.

As a respected leader, the candidate will have an established track record within the petroleum industry, specifically in the development and application of technology in the exploration, development and production of petroleum resources in Canada. A degree in Engineering, Geology, Business Administration or related discipline would be a major asset. This individual will be an exceptional team leader with a collaborative mindset, and will be a strong relationship and partnership builder. The CEO will be a visionary with extensive project and business management experience, and a strong communicator with internal stakeholders, industry clients and governments.
