Postdoctoral researcher: Digitization of Mineral Processing Plants

The Geological Survey of Finland (GTK) is a leading European competence center in assessment and sustainable use of geological resources. We provide expertise that serves the interests of our clients, stakeholders and society as a whole. Working closely with our clients and partners, we create innovative solutions that lead to new technologies and business areas, as well as promote sustainable growth. GTK is an expert organisation under Finland’s Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment. We employ approximately 420 full-time staff who are effectively engaged in tasks at the local, national and international level (See: www.gtk.fi).

This postdoctoral position in the field of Digitization of Mineral Processing Plants involves the digitization of mineral processing plants, such that operators and users can acquire information on the performance of their physical plants in a continuous, near real-time environment.

The work will embrace the latest developments in Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) because processing plants of the future must take full advantage of, and keep pace with, the ever-changing digital advances of the modern world. Significant advances have already been made in building virtual worlds based on real ones (Digital Twins), but this postdoc position builds on these developments, and attempts to fully automate and digitize an entire mineral processing plant, taking into account all possible sources of data, from mine exploration geology, to in-situ ore characterization, through comminution, separation, concentration and to creation of final products and by-products. The pilot plant at GTK’s Mintec facility in Outokumpu will form the basis of the study. The postdoc can be placed either there or at our Espoo office. The candidate must be in possession of a PhD in Minerals Engineering, Mining Engineering, or Applied Geology, with some practical mineral processing experience. Evidence of a previous close cooperation with industry is considered highly desirable.

Further information: Research Prof. Alan R Butcher (alan.butcher@gtk.fi) and Head of Unit, Mineral Processing and Material Research, Jouko Nieminen (jouko.nieminen@gtk.fi).
