University of Exeter: Postdoctoral Research Associate/Fellow

Closing date: 10 August 2020

Location: Cornwall

This full-time Research Fund for Coal and Steel (RFCS) funded post is available from 1 October 2020 to 30 September 2022 to participate in the RFCS consortium grant: From Mining Waste to Valuable Resource: New Concepts for a Circular Economy (MINRESCUE).

This project will comprise a coordinated approach towards the development of new technology and protocols to determine how coal mine waste can be recycled/upcycled. The successful candidate will therefore carry out sampling at legacy coal mine sites in the UK, conduct geochemical, mineralogy and spectroscopic characterisation of these samples, and then carry out extensive hydrometallurgical and electrochemical experiments to determine how such wastes can be transformed into products of economic value.

The successful candidate will benefit from access to the world-class facilities both at the Camborne School of Mines and the Environment & Sustainability Institute, University of Exeter.
