Join Us

We are actively seeking research-intensive S&T faculty to join our diverse team of investigators.

Research at RMERC has traditionally covered the disciplines of Mining Engineering, Explosions and Explosives, Geological Sciences and Engineering, and Petroleum Engineering. Projects in related areas of Mechanical, Civil, Chemical, Metallurgical, Environmental, Electrical, Electronics and Software Engineering have successfully been undertaken as well.

We offer lab space, faculty and grad student office space, a dedicated machine shop, in-house electronics design expertise, and administrative support for proposal development and grant management.

If you are interested in becoming associated with the Center, please contact Dr. Norbert Maerz or Dr. Leslie Gertsch, or any of our current research investigators.

Potential research investigators are discussed at our regular faculty meetings, followed by a simple majority voice vote, and those approved are extended a formal invitation to take up association with RMERC.
