The Kansas Geological Survey at the University of Kansas is hiring 3-5 interns for summer 2024 to contribute to funded research projects. Projects that may support interns in 2024 include:
Environmental Humanities South
Faculty of Humanities, University of Cape Town
The University of Cape Town’s Environmental Humanities South invites applications for a three-year Junior Research Fellow post, funded jointly through the UCT Carnegie DEAL 3 award scheme and the CzASE Studies - Critical Zones Africa South & East research programme funded by Science For Africa Foundation under the DELTASII Africa Awards.
The Department of Biological & Ecological Engineering at Oregon State University invites applications for a full-time (1.00 FTE), 9-month, tenure-track or tenured faculty position with expertise in Biogeochemistry in managed and/or human-impacted landscapes. The position will be appointed at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor, commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Groundwater (GW)'s strategic importance for water, energy, and food security is growing in the face of ongoing climatic changes and human uses. Precisely quantifying water resources is a critical concern, essential for ensuring sustainable yields and maintaining water quality. Components of the water balance are difficult to obtain, both in terms of accuracy and budget closure, especially at the subsurface boundaries of the GW.
The GWSBound Project invites applications for a postdoc position in numerical modelling at Geoscience laboratory of Mines Paris (PSL University) in France.
Mining operations are becoming more technically complex as mineral reserves that are relatively easy to bring to production are significantly depleted. This is resulting in greater financial and economic risks that make it harder for miners to attract capital and obtain government permits, posing a significant threat to the industry's growth in Canada and the ability of the mining industry to deliver critical minerals such as copper and nickel needed for the low-carbon energy transition.
We look forward to hearing from our Critical Zone mineralogists, sedimentologists, petrologists etc! Missy Eppes
