CMC Research Institutes – President Search

CMC Research Institutes, Inc. (CMCRI) is leading the transformation of Canada’s industrial economy to thrive in a low carbon world. CMCRI is an independent, not-for-profit entity that designs, creates, and operates research clusters which catalyze and deliver technology innovation in support of a single mission: the elimination of industrial greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

CMCRI is uniquely structured to achieve its mission in its ability to mobilize and leverage Canada’s academic brain trust through its brick and mortar institutes: the Containment & Monitoring Institute (CaMI), the Carbon Capture & Conversion Institute (CCCI).   Each institute has deep subject matter capacity to find solutions to carbon management challenges through research, development, and field testing of applied solutions, and facilitates the translation of ideas into industrial-scale technologies and science-based opinions that allow for evidence-based policy making.

There is a finite window of opportunity for CMCRI to align itself with the climate change mitigation agendas of federal and provincial governments and to become a key contributor in meeting Canada’s commitment to the Paris Agreement. As President of CMCRI you will join a committed global effort to mitigate climate change.

You will work with your international Board of Directors, with your team, with governments, with industry, and with academics from across Canada and around the world to develop technologies that reduce and eliminate industrial GHG emissions while continuing to foster Canada’s economic prosperity. As President, your goals will include: aligning CMCRI’s mission with government agendas and priorities; securing ongoing funding from government, industry, and philanthropic sources; rallying an army of academics to generate innovative technologies that tackle global climate change threats; and engaging national and international partners in solidifying CMCRI as the global “go-to” organization for solving industry’s green house gas challenges through technology innovation.

Likely coming from a corporate background, you are a credible, adaptive influencer who has the ability to see and connect opportunities across government, academia, and industry to solve GHG technology challenges. You are action-oriented, pragmatic, and able to evaluate opportunities and take measured risks while staying within a defined mandate. You have a track record of generating funding/revenue, partnerships, and profile, and are sufficiently well-connected to gain access to senior bureaucrats and industry executives. You are a person who inspires confidence in others and who engenders hope and possibility in an uncertain world.

Seize this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to combat climate change and help Canada transition to a low carbon future. To explore this opportunity further in confidence, please send your curriculum vitae to
