With CAD $104 million in funding provided by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF) and through strategic partnerships with 5 Canadian universities, 6 government geological surveys and 3 international research centres, Laurentian University is conducting Metal Earth - the largest ever-mineral exploration research project undertaken in Canada. Metal Earth seeks to identify and understand the processes responsible for Earth's differential metal endowment during the Precambrian. This research initiative aims to transform our understanding of Earth's early evolution and how we explore for metals. Metal Earth is led by the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) of the Harquail School of Earth Sciences (HSES), which is housed in the Willet Green Miller Centre in Sudbury. MERC is a semiautonomous research centre at Laurentian, and comprises an internationally recognized group of researchers from HSES, academia, industry and government.
The Mineral Exploration Research Centre, at the Harquail School of Earth Sciences at Laurentian University, seeks applicants for the position of GIS Specialist to support research conducted under Metal Earth. The appointment is for one year, renewable annually which is contingent upon funding.
