Applications are invited for M.Sc. and Ph.D. positions with Prof. Ian Power in the Environmental & Life Sciences (EnLS) Graduate Program at Trent University to research mineral-water interactions and CO2 mineralization within mine wastes. Research will consist of laboratory experiments and fieldwork to understand geochemical and mineralogical processes relating to CO2 mineralization, a process by which CO2 is sequestered within carbonate minerals. The successful applicant(s) will have an opportunity to collaborate with a team of internationally recognized experts in the field of CO2 mineralization within mine wastes. Fieldwork may include campaigns to Canadian and international localities. Prospective students should be highly motivated, preferably hold a degree in either Earth Science, geology, chemistry, environmental science or closely related field, and must meet the entry requirements for graduate research in EnLS at Trent University. The ideal candidate will have laboratory skills, fieldwork experience, strong communication skills (written and verbal), and creativity for experiment design. Research experience in geochemistry, mineralogy or related field at any level is considered highly advantageous.

If interested, please submit an e-mail directly to Dr. Power (firstname.lastname@example.org) providing a cover letter describing your qualifications, CV, unofficial transcripts and contact information for at least three references. Trent University is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified and interested students are welcome.
