The School of Earth, Atmospheric and Life Sciences research expertise includes Geodynamics, Geology, Spatial Sciences and Earth Surface Processes.

Position Summary:

The purpose of this position is to participate in a research programme investigating the relationship between the past motion of tectonic plates, mantle convection, and volcanic products such as large igneous provinces and kimberlites. The role will involve coupling global tectonic reconstructions to global mantle flow models in order to link past mantle upwelling to volcanic activity and work in close collaboration with industry partner and with students and staff within the University of Wollongong and collaborating universities.
