Regolith Scientist / Hydrogeochemist
CSIRO is looking for a Regolith Scientist/Hydrogeochemist to develop means of efficiently mapping buried geology and mineral deposits by understanding their expression in cover sequences and define and understand the relationships between cover, basement (including depth to crystalline basement) and their regolith through new knowledge of mineralogy, geochemistry, petrophysics, hydrology and geochronology to reconstruct landscape evolution through time.
Your primary aim will be to understand the relationships between basement (including basins where appropriate) and regolith through new knowledge of regolith and hydrogeochemistry. This will include an improved understanding of element migration processes (physical and chemical) within current landscape environments and translation into element dispersion in palaeolandscapes.
The skill set required for the role is a combination of the knowledge of soil science, geology, regolith, geochemistry, hydrogeochemistry, and landscape evolution.
