Proposed project title: “Harmonization of LC/MS based non-targeted fingerprinting workflows used for honey authenticity“. In a previous study, a robust, fast and innovative analytical tool was developed for the non-targeted analysis of contaminants in honey. The overall objective of the present research is to harmonize LC-MS based non-targeted fingerprinting workflows used for food authenticity, and develop a standard protocol for authenticity testing of honey.

We seek a qualified and highly motivated individual to conduct innovative research in the area of mining seismicity. The position is to enhance and strengthen our research efforts in understanding induced seismicity in various settings. This is a part of a MITACS Accelerate collaborative research grant led by the research group of Prof. Robert Shcherbakov (publish.uwo.ca/~rshcherb/ ) at Western University, London, Ontario, Canada in collaboration with industry partners (Nutrien Ltd. and International Minerals Innovation Institute). The position assumes the development of multidisciplinary approaches to study induced mining seismicity. Possible research topics include, but are not limited to, statistical modelling of mining seismicity, development of stochastic models for mining seismicity, probabilistic earthquake hazard assessment and forecasting of mining seismicity. The successful applicant is expected to have a PhD degree in Geophysics, Seismology, Physics, Earthquake Engineering, or a closely related field. Strong computer programming and data analysis skills in Matlab/Python are required. Previous research experience in modelling of natural or induced seismicity is a plus. The position also assumes publication of research findings in high-impact scientific journals.
