We seek motivated candidates with a strong interest in hydrothermal geochemistry and ore forming processes for 18 months funded position at the Department of Earth and Environmental Science and the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources at New Mexico Tech. These positions are part of an U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) funded project in Dr. Alexander Gysi’s Ore Deposits and Critical Minerals research group starting Fall 2021.
The other available position is: Post Doctoral Fellow in Experimental Geochemistry
Implement laboratory experimental data from a DOE project into MINES thermodynamic database, development of equations of state for high temperature aqueous fluids, numerical optimization of thermodynamic data and model fitting. Literature data compilation and critical thermodynamic data evaluation. Publication of research in peer-reviewed journals and presentation at conferences, and training of students in numerical modeling. Coordination as well as computer code development with the GEMS development team and participate at the ThermoEcos project with collaborators.
Ph.D. or other doctorate level equivalent. - Area of study: Geochemistry/Geosciences/ Computer Sciences. Scientific data analysis and plotting required. Thermodynamic data: critical evaluation and handling of experimental data required. Computational skills: coding in C++ and python required. Thermodynamic modeling required. Training students desired.
