Supervisor - A/Prof Ed Burton
This fully-funded position will resolve previously unexplored aspects of iron-sulfur geochemistry in anoxic aqueous environments. The position will remain open until filled. The specific topic can be tailored to the applicants interests, as long as there is a focus on the formation and transformation of metastable iron sulfide minerals in soils or sediments, and/or the implications of such behaviour for trace element mobility. Examples of suitable topics include:
- arsenic mobility in flooded soils,
- iron mineralogical controls on wetland soil biogeochemistry,
- iron sulfide formation and element mobility in sulfidogenic environments,and
- schwertmannite stability in wetland soils.
Funding support available.
