Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology
Department of Geology and Mineral Resources Engineering
PhD position within the topic of magnetic anomalies and crustal magnetism
A research scholarship working on the topic of the nature of crustal magnetization and interpretation of magnetic anomalies is available at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Department of Geology and Mineral Resources. The PhD position is for a period of four years and is financed by the Faculty of Engineering Science and Technology.
The PhD position will focus on understanding the nature of crustal magnetization, modeling, field and laboratory work. Magnetic properties will be correlated with magnetic anomalies at ground, and airborne scales. Depending on the candidate, the projects may be fine-tuned to focus on magnetic anomaly interpretation and modeling, or geophysical response of the rocks, including rock and mineral magnetism. The projects will require fieldwork.
The Department of Geology and Mineral Resources Engineering owns and has access to state-of-the- art laboratories, including magnetic instruments, optical-scanning microscopes and electron microprobe, X-ray analytical tools, a unique mineral-processing laboratory and access to TEMs and the nanolab at NTNU.
In order to be considered for the PhD position, the applicant must have a Master's degree within mineral exploration, mineralogy/petrology or geophysics. The candidate must also qualify for admittance as a PhD student at NTNU.
For further information about the position, please contact Professor Suzanne McEnroe, phone +47-73-594806, email: email@example.com.
PhD Candidates are remunerated in code 1017, and are normally remunerated at wage level 50, gross NOK 420 800 before tax.
