We seek motivated candidates with a strong interest in hydrothermal geochemistry and ore forming processes for a 24 months funded project at the Department of Earth and Environmental Science and the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources at New Mexico Tech. This position is part of an U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) funded project in Dr. Alexander Gysi’s Ore Deposits and Critical Minerals research group starting Spring 2021.
The other available postion is: Post Doctoral Fellow in Computational Thermodynamics
Hydrothermal laboratory experiments using potentiometric, solution calorimetry, and UV-vis experiments to determine the specification of REE. Design and testing of new laboratory experiments, training students in the laboratory. Analysis of experimental solutions using ICP-Ms and minerals using XRD and SEM. Thermodynamic database development. Writing and publication of research in peer-reviewed journals, and preparations at conferences.
Ph.D. or other doctorate level equivalent required- area of study Geochemistry/ Chemistry/ Geosciences. Laboratory hydrothermal or calorimetric experiments required. ICP-MS solution preparation, dilutions, standardization, and analysis required. SEM/ XRD for mineral analysis required. Thermodynamics of aqueous fluids required. Training student’s desired.
