Dr. Joinal Abedin, Labrador Institute, is looking for an MSc student to start working on a project in June/July 2014. The title of the project is "Laboratory evaluation of the use of biochar application on sulfidic mine tailings to reduce acid generation and increase immobilization of metals". He is looking for an MSc student to perform experiments such as a series of shake-flask and sorption-desorption studies, and column experiments to evaluate the performance of different types of biochar in the immobilization of metals and reduction of acidity in mine waste (tailings). Applicants should have a strong background in chemistry and/or geochemistry (sample preparation, grinding, extraction, digestion and chemical analysis).
If you are interested, you should email Dr. Abedin directly.
