PhD Opportunities

MinEx CRC's key education and training goals are to collaborate in graduating 50 PGR students from MinEx CRC projects in participant universities and to assist in the training of 200 VET students in specific aspects of drilling and mineral exploration fields.

MinEx CRC will utilise the unique position of CRCs at the nexus between industry and university research to add value for PGR students working on its projects. Specifically, MinEx CRC will:

● offer a voluntary mentoring scheme for PGR students with senior industry staff;
● financially support internships within mining companies, geological surveys or METS companies during PGR research, and;
● provide oral and poster presentation opportunities for every PGR, and networking opportunities with industry representatives, at the annual conference.

For further information please contact Caroline Tiddy, Chair of the MinEx CRC Education and Training Committee.
