1 PhD position in petrology 

The Institute of Earth Sciences at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) invites applications for a PhD position The PhD project carries the working title: “Tracking crustal contributions to rhyolite generation in the Chon Aike Province (Patagonia)” The candidate should have a strong background in petrology (metamorphic or igneous) and a genuine interest in stable isotope geochemistry. A solid foundation in fieldwork is expected. An aptitude for lab-work is of advantage. The field area is the Chon Aike Province, of one of the largest silicic provinces in the world, located in the beautiful landscape of Southern Patagonia. 

The objective of this project is to study the rhyolitic (s.l.) volcanic rocks of this province to decipher (a) the importance of crustal melting in the formation of these rocks and the (b) duration of magma ascent and crystallization – both important and much debated topics in igneous petrology. This study will combine field work, classical petrology and state-of-the-art analytical techniques. The PhD candidate will employ stable isotope analysis using the SwissSIMS to look at quartz and zircon; laser-fluorination will complement the SIMS approach. These data will be embedded in classical petrology and whole rock geochemistry supplemented by radiogenic analysis. Oxygen isotope data of zircon will be complemented by U/Pb dating and trace element work. SIMS respectively NanoSIMS intra-crystalline (mainly quartz) analysis in combinations with trace element determinations (e.g. Ti-in quartz) will give to access time scales of rhyolite formation using diffusion chronometry. Petrological and thermal modelling completes the toolkit. 

This project is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation for a period of 4 years. The starting date is January 2018 (or earlier). Applications are accepted until the position is filled, but we prefer to receive applications before 27. November 2017.

PhD in Université Laval, Québec City, Canada 
- Chemical composition of chalcopyrite: Application to exploration
The objective of the research project is to define chemical composition criteria that distinguish chalcopyrite from major types of cupriferous mineral deposits, worldwide, in order to apply these discriminant criteria in mineral exploration. The chemical composition of chalcopyrite will be measured using the electron probe micro-analyzer, laser ablation ICP-MS, and SIMS. Compositional data will be investigated using advanced multivariate statistical methods to extract criteria distinctive of a cupriferous deposit type. The study will also explore the chemical data to identify features characteristic of economic copper deposits. 

The compositional criteria will be used to assess the origin of chalcopyrite from heavy mineral concentrates from surficial sediments. The PHD project is supported with a research scholarship of $25 000 per year for 3 years. A research MSc in mineral deposit geology or mineral chemistry is desirable, in addition to demonstrated capacity to publish in scientific journals. The candidate will have the opportunity to conduct original research and to present it in national and international conferences.
