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. Submit your cv and motivation letter to: Professor Georges Beaudoin NSERC-Agnico Eagle Industrial Research Chair in Mineral Exploration Département de géologie et de génie géologique Université Laval

Applications for 2018/2019 Chevening Scholarships are open between 12:00 BST on 7 August 2017 and 12:00 GMT on 7 November 2017 (both midday UK time).

Chevening is the UK government's global scholarship programme that offers future leaders the unique opportunity to study in the UK. These scholarships are awarded to outstanding professionals from your country and beyond to pursue a one-year master’s degree in any subject at any UK university.

Chevening provides fully-funded scholarships, leaving you free to focus on achieving your professional goals and enjoying the experience of a lifetime. You will live and study in the UK for a year, during which time you will develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK.

If you have ambition, leadership potential, and a strong academic background, we encourage you to go to the UK and grow in the UK as a Chevening Scholar.


Mineralogical Course 
PhD short course on „Mineralogy, Mineral Physics and Seismology of Earth’s Mantle“ that will be held at the Bayerisches Geoinstitut in Bayreuth from the 18th to 22nd of September 2017.

The short course is supported by the German Mineralogical Society (DMG), a brief description of the course's goals are given below. More detailed information on the course and the application procedure (deadline is August, 18th 2017) can be found here:

Summary: The goal of the PhD workshop is to bring together students from (experimental) mineralogy/mineral physics and seismology to define a common “language”, foster scientific dialogue and ultimately provide the basis for future collaborations. Students from seismology/geophysics will be introduced to the field of high-pressure/high-temperature experiments and the measurement of physical properties that are of relevance to the interpretation of seismic observables. Students from the field of mineralogy will learn how to treat seismic data and construct seismic models. In the course, we will also discuss how to construct seismic models from available mineral physics data, emphasising current limitations and future perspectives. All lectures and practicals will be designed towards the goal of enabling future interactions among scientists from the two disciplines.

Apa artinya hidup kalau tidak memberi manfaat untuk orang lain. Mari kita mulai dengan membagi ilmu yang kita ketahui dengan orang lain. Suatu saat, kita akan meninggalkan dunia ini, namun tidak dengan ilmu dan karya kita. Mari mulai berkarya, mari memberi semangat ke sekitar, mari mulai menulis dan bekerja untuk keabadian.
