Job Description

PhD Scholarship - Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre (JKMRC) Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre (JKMRC) TheJKMRCis a world-renowned research and postgraduate education organisation, located at Indooroopilly in Brisbane, approximately 7 km from St Lucia, the main campus of the University of Queensland. JKMRC was established in 1970, and now forms part of the UQ Sustainable Minerals Institute (SMI) The mission of the JKMRC is to deliver world-class, customer-focussed education, research and technical services to the world minerals industry and allied sectors. The JKMRC has an international reputation for applied research in the areas of mineral processing and geometallurgy. It specialises in ore characterisation, mineral processing unit operations such as comminution and flotation, applied mineralogy, and the interface between mining and processing. Its emphasis on systems analysis by mathematical modelling and process simulations has led to major new methodologies in the design and optimisation of mineral processing operations. It works closely with the international minerals industry and other research providers in Australia and overseas. It has graduated in excess of 200 Masters and PhD students and won many awards for its research. It has a proven record of technology transfer through JKTech, which has significant experience in the commercial delivery of JKMRC research outcomes, particularly in simulation software and ore characterisation methodologies. The Scholarship JKMRC and Newcrest Mining Limitedare looking for an independent, bright and enthusiastic student who is excited at the prospect of conducting research in arsenic chemistry in the mineral processing field. The student will be expected to operate with a high degree of autonomy, under the guidance of the worlds top mineral processing experts. The JKMRC has a longstanding collaborative relationship with Newcrest. Newcrest is an Australian-based mining company which engages in exploration, development and mining of copper and gold. They own and run a number of operations both in Australia and around the world, including: Cadia Valley Operations (NSW); Telfer Mine (WA); Lihir Mine (Papua New Guinea); and Gosowong (Indonesia). Newcrest has a firm commitment to the development and implementation of ground-breaking new technologies in mineral beneficiation, treatment and separation. This exciting project will focus specifically on the development of novel reagent technologies for targeting arsenic in mineral processing, allowing its effective removal from processing streams, thus, enabling the processing of ores more safely and minimising environmental impact. It will involve the development of new reagent chemistries and testing of reagent efficacy.The student appointed under this scholarship will form part of a group of students sponsored under the Newcrest UQ Alliance in Sustainable Mining. This alliance was formed as a UQ-Industry PhD Partnership (UQIPP) with the intention of conducting mining-related research projects of strategic interest to Newcrest and to develop the next generation of technical leaders for the mining industry. Students will commence in either October 2019 or January 2020 Award value: $27,596 per annum tax-free (2019 rate), indexed annually, for three years with the possibility of two 6-month extensions in approved circumstances. A top up of $10,000 p.a. is available to outstanding candidates Questions To discuss this role please contact Dr Susana Lima Goncalves Brito e Abreu ons.britoeabreu@uq.edu.au Want to Apply To apply for this admission and scholarship please visit;Grad Schools websiteStudent type; Domestic students only Julius Kruttschnitt Mineral Research Centre (JKMRC) TheJKMRCis a world-renowned research and postgraduate education organisation, located at Indooroopilly in Brisbane, approximately 7 km from St Lucia, the main campus of the University of Queensland.
