MEI Online: Careers: Job Vacancies: Junior Mineralogist




Junior Mineralogist  [May 25, 2022]

Location: Redruth, England, United Kingdom

Petrolab is a successful and growing geomaterials analysis consultancy providing support services to the mining, minerals processing and construction industries worldwide from its base in Redruth, Cornwall, UK. We provide dependable and accessible interpretative reporting to our clients helping them evaluate the potential of their mineral resources and solve materials related problems.

We are looking to recruit a Junior Mineralogist to assist in providing petrological and mineralogical consultancy projects to clients in the minerals, mining and structural materials industries. This includes the preparation of sections from geological and construction materials for microscopic analysis, routine mineralogical and petrographic tests, recording and preparing samples for testing and operation of scientific instrumentation and software (e.g. scanning electron microscope, optical microscopes and ancillary equipment) to analyse a broad range of materials including concrete, aggregate, rock core and mineral processing samples.

You will be a graduate geologist or earth scientist and be able to demonstrate a desire to learn quickly with an aptitude for working in a fast-moving commercial consultancy delivering multiple projects to defined timescales. You will be joining a highly motivated team of other Junior, Project and Senior Mineralogists. Ideally you will have some previous relevant work experience. However, you will receive training and opportunities to gain new competencies and facilitate your progression within the company.

This role is based in Redruth, Cornwall. Due to the nature of analytical work there is very limited opportunity for remote working. You must have the right (or be able to obtain the right) to permanently work in the UK.
