Hi All (with apologies for cross postings)
I am looking to fill a two-year postdoctoral research fellow position focused on identifying key parts of US and global metal supply chains that are highly prospective for enhanced tellurium extraction. This will include assessing the tellurium production potential of the global smelting and refining industry associated with the Au, Pb, Zn, and Ni sectors and generating a database of global base and precious metal deposits with elevated Te production potential either from primary sources or from waste streams from existing mining operations. Further research involving the analysis of samples from highly prospective mineral deposits may also be a part of this project.
The postdoctoral research fellow will be based at the Ralph J. Roberts Center for Research in Economic Geology, within the Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology at the University of Nevada Reno, USA. The position would suit candidates with experience in economic geology, mineral economics and/or materials flows analysis and will be available in the very near future. Interested candidates should contact me at email@example.com with a copy of their CV/resume and an indication of why they would be interested in this position. Please pass this on to candidates you think may be interested in this postdoctoral research fellowship.
