Metal Earth PDF/Research Associate Positions, Laurentian University

The Mineral Exploration Research Centre at Laurentian University, Canada, seeks applicants for two postdoctoral positions with Metal Earth, a CAD $104 million project which seeks to identify and understand the processes responsible for Earth’s differential metal endowment during the Precambrian. The first position addresses the differential VMS endowment of Archean greenstone belts. It will undertake a comprehensive review and compilation of geological, geochemical, geophysical and geochronological data at the assemblage scale in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt, followed by post- and pre-deformation reconstruction of volcanic assemblages and analysis of its deposits, to identify a common set of geological predictors of mineral endowment. As part of an integrated geological-geophysical team, the second position will involve detailed geological mapping along a transect that cut across precious metal endowed and less endowed ancestral faults in greenstone belts of the western Superior craton. Research will establish the stratigraphic and structural architecture of the belts, and the timing and relationship between precious metal systems and the evolution of the greenstone belts. The positions are funded for 2 to 4 years beginning in February-May, 2020. Reviews of application will start in January. For more information on the positions and application process, see https://merc.laurentian.ca/careers. Laurentian University especially welcomes and encourages applications from members of visible minorities, women, Aboriginal persons, members of sexual minorities and persons with disabilities. Applicants may self-identify as a member of an employment equity group.
