|Postdoctoral Fellowship for Carbonate Paleokarst Position
The Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG), Jackson School of Geosciences at
The University of Texas at Austin has an opening for new or recent doctorates
(degree within the past 3 years) in geosciences or related fields, with expertise in
carbonate geology. The candidate should have proven experience in carbonate
diagenesis, ideally in the origin (formation mechanism) and burial evolution of
karst in carbonate rocks. Skills in integration of core, outcrop, well-log, and/or
seismic data to develop geological models are desirable. Strong training in
structure (fracture/fault) geology would be an additional asset.
BEG has some of the leading geoscientists in karsted and fractured carbonate
reservoirs in the world. We are initiating a two-year multi-disciplinary project
focused on the formation of paleokarst and fracture porosity with respect to
reservoir development in Ordovician carbonates, northwestern China.
We are looking for researchers with good communications skills and the strong
desire to publish their work in peer-reviewed international journals. This position
is at the J. J. Pickle Research Campus, The University of Texas at Austin.
The appointment is for two years with a salary of ~$58,000 per year
(depending on qualifications) plus benefits. The successful applicant can begin
his/her research in September of 2015, or as soon as possible, but no later than
May 16, 2016.
All interested applicants should submit a complete CV (including education,
employment history, awards, publications, and extramural funding record, etc.) and
contact information for three references to Dr. Qilong Fu (email@example.com) and Dr. Esti Ukar (firstname.lastname@example.org).
