Hi all,

Please circulate to any potentially interested candidates.

I have available a PhD position for a candidate at the University of
Waikato in New Zealand, looking at variations in C, O, H and S isotope
compositions within active geothermal systems in New Zealand, as well as
epithermal and porphyry hydrothermal ore deposits, with an aim to determine
fluid flow pathways and fluid flow directions. We will be utilising both
conventional IRMS as well as infrared spectroscopy isotope measurements
using Los Gatos Research instruments for H, O and C isotopes in hydrous
silicate and carbonate minerals.

This a very interesting PhD project, with a mixture of fundamental science
and stable isotope method development using cutting-edge infrared isotopic
methods, coupled with application of stable isotopes to understanding
hydrothermal systems, and aiding mineral exploration and ore deposit models.

The ideal candidate would have an experience in stable isotope measurements
(or even better experience and/or an interest in method development), and
an interest/background in hydrothermal/geothermal systems and/or ore

The PhD position has a stipend of NZ$25,000 per year for 3 years, with
tuition fees also covered for that period. The position is “full time”
research with no classes or teaching assistantship required.

Any interested candidates please contact Shaun Barker, sbarker at waikato.ac.nz,
for further information and/or details on how to apply. The position will
remain open until a suitable candidate has been found.
