PhD positions in geophysics methods are available with Professor Andrei Swindisky starting in the 2021/22 academic year….
PhD project 1. To improve exploration for blind hydrothermal systems. Can novel ground and airborne EM measurements be used to better explore for deeply buried blind hydrothermal systems?
PhD project 2. To increase exploration depth in the search for critical minerals. Can novel ground and airborne EM measurements be used to increase the exploration depth for critical mineral deposits buried under cover?
PhD project 3. To characterize artificial fractures in enhanced geothermal systems (EGS). How can EM methods be used to image the distribution of artificial fractures in an enhanced geothermal system?
PhD project 4. To develop reservoir monitoring tools for subsurface carbon dioxide (CO2) storage. How can EM methods be used to monitor carbon capture & storage processes in the presence of steel infrastructure?
PhD and Masters students will work at the intersection of isotope geochemistry and experimental petrology. Students will simulate magmatic conditions in the experimental petrology laboratory and analyze the textural, chemical, and isotopic compositions…

Understanding the impact of pyrite dissolution on the Quaternary pCO2 (Ph.D)….
One graduate student position is available for research on paleoecology of temperate or boreal/sub-arctic peatlands using microfossil indicators and reconstructions of carbon fluxes over the Holocene and Pleistocene Epochs. Applicants should have a degree in Earth Science, Physical Geography, Environmental Science, Ecology or related discipline and applicable research experience. Contact Prof S. Finkelstein (email@example.com)
The Schoenbohm Research Group (http://www.lindsay-schoenbohm.com/) in the Department of Chemical and Physical Sciences at the University of Toronto Mississauga invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship beginning September 1, 2019.
