The purpose of the Centre for Water in the Minerals Industry (CWiMI) is to facilitate the capture of benefits from opportunities associated with sustainable water management in the minerals industry. We do this by conducting systems science and engineering research; working with industry and government to facilitate adoption and technology transfer; and establishing, maintaining and providing access to a repository of knowledge. Water is a critical resource for mining and minerals processing. Water management features in sustainability goal setting and reporting for all global minerals companies. A critical aspect of leading practice water management is to understand the relationships between water quantity and water quality. These interactions vary depending on the stage of the operation's life cycle and the nature of the operation. CWiMI is developing research to generate the knowledge and tools to tackle the operational challenges associated with the water quality/quantity nexus in mining and minerals processing. Of particular interest is the influence of microbially driven processes on water quality and the impact of mine water discharge on aquatic ecosystems.The role
CWiMI is developing a research theme focussing on the link between water quantity and water quality management at a range of scales. Your primary role will be to provide disciplinary skills in microbial ecology and biogeochemistry as it relates to mine site water management and interactions with the surrounding landscape. Of particular importance is the development of understanding of the role that microbial processes play in maintaining
