Geological Survey of Canada

The Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) is part of the Earth Sciences Sector of Natural Resources Canada. The GSC is Canada’s oldest scientific agency and one of its first government organizations. It was founded in 1842 to help develop a viable Canadian mineral industry by establishing the general geological base on which the industry could plan detailed investigations. Throughout its long and colourful history, the GSC has played a leading role in exploring the nation.

Today, the GSC is Canada’s national organization for geoscientific information and research. Its world-class expertise focuses on the sustainable development of Canada’s mineral, energy and water resources; stewardship of Canada’s environment; management of natural geological and related hazards; and technology innovation.

Job description

The Geological Survey of Canada is seeking a qualified Post Doctoral candidate, or work experience equivalent, with specialty in 3D geological modelling of regional scale stratigraphy and structures. Two year, extendable, research position for developing regional to national-scale 3D geological models of Canadian geology. The successful applicant will function as part of a team to implement and advance innovative methods for 3D geological modelling in data-sparse and knowledge-rich environments, using 2D geoscience information from regional maps, digital elevation models and cross-section interpretations, as well as structural data from surface mapping and bore holes. Requires expert knowledge of some 3D geological modelling platforms, including Gocad-SKUA, Geomodeller, GemPy, CURE, LoopStructural, or Map2Loop. Experience with machine learning applications for integration and joint geophysical and geological inversions is a bonus. Broad knowledge of geological processes, approaches to 3D regional scale geo-mapping and advanced computational techniques for handling, analyzing and modelling of 3D geoscience data. This research will extend Canada3D ( priority regions through an international research and development collaboration with the international Loop research project (
