About the position

The Exploration department at LKAB is in an expansive phase, with responsibilities in and around our mines in Malmberget, Kiruna and Svappavaara. Greenfield exploration is also carried out with focus on iron ore deposits under cover, for which geophysics is an essential component. The company is therefore strengthening our geophysics group.

As a geophysicist at the Exploration department you should expect to take part in all aspects of geophysical surveys, with work duties including survey planning, geophysical fieldwork, data processing, interpretation and report writing. You will work together with geologists, technicians, drillers, and other geophysicists, sometimes from external organizations.

The geophysics team employs a range of geophysical methods, including potential field, EM and seismic surveys. Downhole geophysical logging is also frequently used in connection with the drilling. The project range covers near-mine to greenfield exploration, and the former can involve underground work. The geophysics group also supports projects within other areas of the company, and is involved in R&D projects in cooperation with universities or other research institutes.

The position will be based either in Kiruna or Malmberget, and the work involves travel between the sites.


We welcome applicants with a Master’s degree in geophysics, alternatively an engineering or Earth science education at a similar level containing advanced geophysical courses.

We will prioritize applicants that either have some years of mineral exploration experience, or have worked with advanced potential field or EM modelling during post-graduate studies or in the industry.

Previous fieldwork experience is an advantage. Please also mention any programming and electronics skills in the application. We value good communication and analytical skills, flexibility, curiosity, and a possibility to work independently as well as in teams.

Good command of English is essential, and driving license is required. We expect that you either know Swedish or is open to learn the language.
