A postdoctoral research position is immediately available at the Mining Innovation, Rehabilitation and Applied Research Corporation (MIRARCO) to undertake research on geomechanics issues related to mining at great depth. The successful applicant will work under the supervision of Drs Peter K. Kaiser and Ming Cai at Laurentian University and will also be expected to train and mentor junior researchers and graduate students, write research reports and publications and assist in the preparation of research proposals. At this stage, the research may be related to the interpretation of monitoring data from pillar load testing, rock bursting and the determination of strainburst potential, and the collection of data in underground environments. For these reasons, applicants must demonstrate experience with underground work (tunnelling or mining), numerical modelling, and instrumentation as well as practical interpretation of field observations.
