Executive Director, Fedoruk Centre

Established in 2011, the Sylvia Fedoruk Canadian Centre for Nuclear Innovation (The Fedoruk Centre) is a not-for-profit corporation, wholly owned by the University of Saskatchewan and located on the university campus.  The Fedoruk Centre’s purpose is to place Saskatchewan among global leaders in nuclear research, development and training through investment in partnerships with academia and industry, for maximum societal and economic benefit.

Innovation Saskatchewan, the Government of Saskatchewan agency responsible for co-coordinating innovation priorities, has committed $33 million to support the Fedoruk Centre and continue the province’s legacy of world-class nuclear research.

The Fedoruk Centre’s responsibilities include:

  • funding nuclear research projects in Saskatchewan;
  • fostering programs that build capacity in Saskatchewan for contributing scientific and social leadership in the nuclear domain;
  • maintaining tools to inform policy makers and the community about nuclear topics; and
  • operating the university’s new cyclotron-based facility that produces isotopes and radiopharmaceuticals for application in research and clinical diagnostics. 

The unique nature of its mandate and strong partnership with government place the Fedoruk Centre among a select group of nuclear innovation initiatives globally. While working to build an international and collaborative network of experts, the Centre enables people in Saskatchewan to generate, interpret and apply new knowledge, resulting in positive impacts through application of nuclear technologies in medicine, materials, energy, and the environment.

You will act as the Fedoruk Centre’s chief advocate and relationship builder, strengthening the brand, and securing partnerships with new stakeholders in government, academia and industry that will foster sustainable operations and innovation for years to come.
