The School of Earth Sciences is interlinked in research with the ARC Centre of Excellence in Ore Deposits (CODES) at the University of Tasmania and the Cooperative Research Centre for Optimising Resource Extraction (CRC ORE) at the University of Queensland. Research is both fundamental and applied with funding coming from government agencies and the exploration and mining sectors.
The School and Centre of Excellence are nationally and internationally recognised for their high quality undergraduate, postgraduate and academic research in the geological sciences, and are currently building research strengths in environmental mineralogy and geochemistry.
The School offers research projects at the Honours, Masters and PhD levels (see the ‘study with us’ tab on our home page). Past research graduates of the School occupy many key positions in the exploration and mining industries, in Government geological surveys, and in Earth Science Departments of other universities, both in Australia and overseas.
