Two PhD opportunities : Genesis of lithium-bearing pegmatites in the Su- perior Province, Québec

Geotop is seeking two candidates for collaborative PhD projects between McGill University and the Université du Québec à Montréal. These projects aim to develop a comprehensive understanding of the genesis and emplacement of Archean Li pegmatites in the Superior Province (QC). Research is based on structural, geochronological, petrological and geo- chemical studies, supported by experiments and modelling on the Sirmac and Moblan examples in the Frotet-Evans greenstone belt.

Project objectives with regard to the characteristics of Li pegmatites


Depending on the project, candidates should demonstrate :
-An interest in petrology, geochemistry or structural geology as applied to metallogeny
-Aptitudes for field geology and laboratory work
-Ability to work in a team within a research group and in an industrial environment
-Fluency in English - oral and written
-Proven scientific writing skills

These projects will start in summer 2024. Interested candidates are asked to contact Stéphane De Souza and send him a resume. Postings will continue until recruitment is complete, but don't delay: de_souza.stephane [at] (de_souza[dot]stephane[at]uqam[dot]ca)
