GEUS seeks a researcher in Economic Geology. The position is for three years and to be filled by April 1st, 2020.

The position
We would like to expand our group’s expertise with aspects of economic geology relevant for raw material exploration and extraction, particularly in Denmark and Greenland. The position requires expertise in the fundamental fields of geological and structural mapping, mineralogy and petrology, plus experience of the needs of the raw materials industry. The work involves integration and interpretation of various geoscience data, and we would also like to develop capability to build 3D geodynamic models for some mineral deposit types at deposit, district and regional scales.

Required qualifications
The employment will be based on scientific merits.

We will place particular emphasis on the following qualifications:

  • A ph.d. degree within geology or geophysics
  • Ability to capture and integrate geoscience data from multiple sources into an exploration framework
  • Experience from working in either the petroleum or minerals exploration industry
  • Experience with risk-based approaches for exploration and evaluation of data uncertainties
  • Experience from working in large geoscience programmes with multiple partners and technical disciplines
  • Knowledge of GIS, map organisation and management
  • First author on several publications in international journals
  • Ability to generate project proposals with EU funding agencies.

Additionally, we expect the successful candidate to be open minded, dedicated, and able to collaborate with colleagues and project/business partners across a wide range of professional and cultural backgrounds.

Department of Petrology and Economic Geology
The activities at the Department of Petrology and Economic Geology include research on the igneous, metamorphic and structural evolution of crystalline complexes, geological mapping, and ore forming processes and mineral deposits in a variety of geological environments. A core activity for the department is to assist the Greenlandic government to develop a sustainable mineral industry by collecting and providing basic geological data for Greenland. This is done by continuously collecting and integrating geological, geophysical, geochemical, remote sensing and other types of geodata. Acquisition, processing and interpretation of large, computationally intensive data sets are key components of GEUS’s work.

We offer

  • A creative and interdisciplinary research environment
  • A lively and informal working environment with talented and dedicated colleagues
  • Versatile work duties and good opportunities to influence them
  • Development opportunities with access to courses and other further education
  • Family friendly workplace with flexible office hours
