Mineral Resources Research Scientist
We invite applications for an additional Research Scientist to join our mineral resources and bedrock geology team. This is an exciting opportunity for a field-oriented geologist interested in conducting geologic mapping of volcanic fields and/or crystalline rocks. The successful candidate will contribute expertise in one or more of the following subdisciplines: igneous/metamorphic petrology, economic geology, physical volcanology, structural geology, geochronology, geochemistry, or regional geology.
This is an extended temporary position that is expected to last one year, with a possible extension contingent on project funding. Review of applications will begin on October 16, 2023. Interviews are expected to be held remotely starting October 30, 2023.
The new Research Scientist will participate in the AZGS geologic mapping program jointly funded by the AZGS and the USGS through the STATEMAP program. The AZGS geologic mapping program takes advantage of Arizona’s long field season (October to May) with the summer months focused on map compilation, report writing, and sample analysis. Staff typically participate in additional projects based on research expertise and project needs. Key technical skills for a successful candidate include the ability to conduct geologic mapping (including structural and stratigraphic analysis), interpret diverse datasets (e.g., borehole data, geo/thermochronologic results, and geochemistry), and synthesize information in a GIS environment.
