The Multidisciplinary Applied Geochemistry Network (MAGNET) is an NSERC-funded industrial-stream Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) program devoted to environmental, analytical and exploration geochemistry.  MAGNET’s cohesive training environment and access to state-of-the-art analytical laboratories, combined with industry internships, professional skills development, and travel/networking opportunities, offers trainees a competitive advantage.  Launched in 2012, the network now involves 55+ trainees, faculty, collaborators and industry partners across Canada.

We are currently seeking up to 6 MSc and PhD students for September 2016 for the following research projects:

  • Volatile organic contaminants at the groundwater – surface water interface
  • Provenance of methane and halogens in groundwater in southeastern Ontario
  • Origin, residence times and geochemical signatures of deep crustal fluids
  • Evaluating sources and bioaccumulation of Hg within aquatic food webs using stable mercury isotopes
  • Lead isotope geochemistry of plagioclase from the Skaergaard Intrusion
