PhD position in Technical Resource Geology - Mineral Resource Assessment (IVT-23/14)
At Department of Geology and Mineral Resources Engineering there is a vacant PhD position in technical resource geology with focus on mineral resource assessment. The position is for a four years period, financed by the Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology.
The PhD project will primarily involve an assessment of undiscovered mineral resources potential in the mid-Atlantic ridge (MAR) area that falls within Norwegian jurisdiction. The candidate also will help to develop methodology and apply this to selected commodities and ore deposit types on the Norwegian mainland. The focus of the thesis will be adapted to the main qualification of the selected PhD candidate, however, the goal is to increase the level of understanding on how play analyses and quantitative techniques developed, and applied in the Norwegian oil and gas industry, can be used on marine mineral deposits and on onshore mineral deposits.
The Department of Geology and Mineral Resources Engineering has a long history of research in these areas of quantitative geology. The department has been an international driving force in developing the play analysis methodology used today in the oil and gas industry to quantify the undiscovered resource potential.
In order to be considered for the PhD position, the applicant must have a Master's degree within resource / ore geology. The candidate must also qualify for admittance as a PhD student at NTNU. Candidates with a quantitative background will be preferred. In addition, it is recommended that the applicant has experience in the field of geographical information systems and database management. Good written and oral English is a prerequisite.
