Available Positions

At the Hydrometallurgy and Environment Group in the Mining Department at Queen’s University, we are always excited to hear from highly-motivated students. We welcome people interested in all aspects of hydrometallurgy, electrometallurgy and minerals electrochemistry. In particular, we are looking for students that wish to explore these themes and that are open to the possibilities that such studies offer. If you are such a student, read through the information provided on these pages and get in touch with Prof. Ahmad Ghahreman.

2 PhD positions: We are currently looking for 2 PhD students to join our group immediately for the following projects:

1- Electrochemical sensor development for applications in hydrometallurgical processes: we ideally need a student with MSc in electrochemistry or sensor development and interested in developing and testing sensors in the fields.

2- Bio-hydrometallurgy of sulfide ores: MSc in hydrometallurgy or extractive metallurgy or ideally bio-hydrometallurgy is required.  Exceptional candidates with an electrochemical engineering background will be also considered.

Application Procedure: Please send your application (a cover letter, CV, list of two or three references, and publications) via email to Prof. Ahmad Ghahreman (ahmad.g@queensu.ca)
