MAGNET unites key laboratories from across Canada, providing trainees with access to a wide range of the latest technologies and principles of analytical geochemistry.

MAGNET trainees are offered internships with some of the top analytical, environmental, mining and mineral exploration companies in Canada and abroad.

What is MAGNET?

MAGNET, the Multidisciplinary Applied Geochemistry Network, is an NSERC-funded industrial stream Collaborative Research and Training Experience (CREATE) program devoted to geochemistry. MAGNET connects trainees with leading scientists and state-of-the-art analytical laboratories across Canada to address challenges in analytical, environmental and exploration geochemistry. MAGNET’s cohesive learning environment, combined with industry internships, professional skills training and networking opportunities, offers trainees a significant competitive advantage. The comprehensive and integrated nature of this training program represents a novel and much needed approach to geochemistry education in Canada.
