Apply now Job no:504092
Area:Sustainable Minerals Institute
Salary (FTE):Research Scholar BAND
Work type:Full Time – Scholarship, Full Time – Fixed Term
Location: St Lucia, Brisbane

The Sustainable Minerals Institute at The University of Queensland (UQ) is a world leading research institute dedicated to finding knowledge-based solutions to the sustainability challenges of the global minerals industry. Our purpose is to develop practical solutions to the challenges of operating sustainably in the resources sector. We have a unique inter-disciplinary approach including expertise in engineering, science and the social sciences.

Our expertise, which comes from experience across the research, government and industry sectors is genuinely independent and objective. Our work covers all facets of the life of mine from geology, to minerals extraction, water management issues, minerals processing, workplace health and safety, mine rehabilitation, energy and community engagement.

The role

Queensland State Government recently awarded an AQ Innovation Partnership Project titled Indigenous Employment, Forestry Livelihoods, Mining (2017 – 2021/2022) to University of Sunshine Coast and The University of Queensland and its partners: Green Coast Resources (GCR) Pty Ltd, Wik Timber Holdings Pty Ltd and My Pathways. The primary goal of this project is to support the establishment of a diversified indigenous forest industry that will maximize indigenous jobs, by harvesting timber and non-timber forest resources from areas to be declared as part of bauxite mining operations and establishing plantation forestry trials as part of mine-site rehabilitation. One of the important aspects underpinning desired plantation forestry outcomes is the rehabilitation of sustainable soil systems at post-mined land, through rehabilitating soil quality by utilizing tree/plant biomass (or forest mulch) from timber harvesting and forest clearing before mining, for the establishment and quality growth of key timber tree species as keystone species as required.
