The Helmholtz Centre Potsdam - GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences is the national research centre for Earth sciences in Germany. With approx. 1,260 employees (including visiting scientists), the GFZ is conducting interdisciplinary research on the "System Earth" and the influence of humans on the planet. As a member of the Helmholtz Association, it is part of Germany's largest science organization.
For Section 3.1 "Inorganic and Isotope Geochemistry" we invite applications for a
PhD Student (m/f/x) on "The role of organic and inorganic geochemical interactions in the formation of Copper Mineralisation in the Kupferschiefer"
An increase in the demand for copper is an inevitable outcome of the energy transition and the evolution of high-tech societies. This project will bring together cutting edge techniques in organic geochemistry and mineralogy to understand a world class copper system. The student will be part of the Ore Genesis research group led by Prof. Sarah Gleeson and co-supervised by P.D. Dr. Hans-Martin Schultz from Section 3.2 Organic Geochemistry.
