After four years working for industry and GSWA she returned to UWA to undertake post-graduate studies of high-grade metamorphic rocks in the Narryer Terrane of the northern Yilgarn Craton. Extensive experience of electron probe microanalysis as part of her PhD project led to a post-doctoral fellowship in the Electron Microscopy Centre (now CMCA) on completion of her post-graduate studies.
Janet returned to consulting and contracting work in the mineral exploration industry in 1991 before returning to UWA and CMCA as a Research Associate in 2005.
