MEI Online: Careers: Job Vacancies: PhD Student in Mineral Processing




PhD Student in Mineral Processing  [December 13, 2021]

Location: Luleň University of Technology, Sweden

We are looking for a PhD student that will do research on climate gains through mineral resource efficiency. The student will be enrolled in Mineral Processing (Division of Minerals and Metallurgical Engineering), but jointly supervised together with colleagues from Law and Political Science from the Division of Social Science at LTU. This study aims to develop a practical pathway for establishing a systematic and sustainable direction towards a climate-smart framework for global mineral supply chains in transition to the green economy, thereby considering connecting across the global sustainability gaps. The project assimilates two lines of research into a combined conceptual framework: (i) trade in global mineral supply chains and (ii) embodied emissions. This allows both added value and emissions to be systematically traced at the selected countries (in Europe and globally), through various routes in global production networks. The proposed framework shall include the structure and overall regulations and a platform on which developed countries can provide technical support (i.e. knowledge exchange) and investments to mineral-rich developing countries (i.e. long term capacity building). In this study, the supply of battery minerals and cross-cutting minerals are studied.
