Postdoctoral Research Fellow - Geometallurgy / Economic Geology

Apply now Job no: 492962
Work type: Full time
Location: Hobart
Categories: Academic - Research Focus

CODES is the Centre for Ore Deposit and Earth Sciences. Formed in 1989 at the University of Tasmania, the Centre has grown substantially over the years and is now widely regarded as a global leader in ore deposit research.

This position is based at CODES and is part of the Collaborative Research Centre for Optimising Resource Extraction (CRC ORE). This position is in the areas of Geometallurgy, combined with Economic Geology, specifically predictive geometallurgical controls on grade by size.  The appointee will conduct a geometallurgy research program, with the aim to investigate what geological parameters from a range of scales from mineralogy to ore deposit models can contribute to a prediction of which ore types and ore blocks should be tested for grade engineering behaviour.

In the role, as an Academic Level B you will:

  • Undertake high-quality research of national standing, publish research findings and contribute to the successful supervision of research higher degree students.
  • Undertake scholarly coursework teaching including contributions to the geometallurgy and ore deposits Masters short courses, and undergraduate Environmental Geology courses, deliver training and technology transfer workshops to industry and community presentations.
  • In collaboration with CODES and CRC ORE, manage IP and commercialisation issues stemming from the underpinning technologies research.
  • Compile and edit the CRC ORE annual report of research activities relevant to geometallurgy and contribute to social media output and other community outreach strategies as required.
  • Participate in the governance of CODES through membership of the CODES research committee, together with leadership of, and contribution to, individual CODES research projects.

In the role, as an Academic Level C you will:

  • Undertake high-quality research of international standing, publish research findings and contribute to the successful supervision of research higher degree students.
  • Undertake scholarly coursework teaching including high level involvement with and contributions to the geometallurgy and ore deposits Masters short courses, and undergraduate Environmental Geology courses, lead the delivery of training and technology transfer workshops to industry and community presentations.
  • In collaboration with CODES and CRC ORE, manage IP and commercialisation issues stemming from the underpinning technologies research.
  • Compile and edit contributions for the Geometallurgy, Geoenvironment and Mining research program report for the CODES annual report and the CRC ORE annual report of research activities relevant to geometallurgy and contribute to social media output and other community outreach strategies as required.
  • Actively participate in the governance of CODES, providing academic leadership of CODES’ Geometallurgy, Geoenvironment and Mining Program and membership of the CODES research committee, together with leadership of, and contribution to, individual CODES research projects.

You will be employed on a fixed-term basis for a period of three years.

To be considered, for appointment at Academic Level B, you will have:

  • A PhD or equivalent in Geometallurgy, Economic Geology, Geochemistry or a related field
  • Demonstrated ability to undertake research that has achieved national and/or international recognition and made worthwhile contributions to the fields of geometallurgy, economic geology and/or hydrothermal ore deposit characterisation
  • Experience with geometallurgical analyses, and the interpretation of geometallurgical data from geochemical and physical property measurements
  • Extensive experience with ore deposit mineralogy, textures and paragenesis
  • A record of contributing to building and maintaining effective and productive links locally and nationally with the discipline, profession, industry and the wider community.

To be considered, for appointment at Academic Level C, you will have:

  • A PhD or equivalent in Geometallurgy, Economic Geology, Geochemistry or a related field
  • A substantial record in, and continuing commitment to, research that has achieved national and/or international recognition and made innovative, and notable contributions to the fields of geometallurgy, economic geology and/or hydrothermal ore deposit characterisation, demonstrated by a strong record of high-quality publications, presentations at conferences and success in securing external competitive and other funding
  • Extensive experience with geometallurgical analyses, and the interpretation of geometallurgical data from geochemical and physical property measurements
  • Extensive experience with ore deposit mineralogy, textures and paragenesis
  • Extensive experience with building and maintaining effective and productive links locally and nationally with the discipline, profession, industry and the wider community.

Appointment to this role will be at Academic Level B and will have a total remuneration package of up to $120,892 comprising base salary within the range of $87,632 - $103,327 plus 17% superannuation.

Appointment to this role will be at Academic Level C and will have a total remuneration package of up to $142,754 comprising base salary within the range of $106,480 - $122,012 plus 17% superannuation.
