|Postdoctoral Fellowship Positions: Carbonate Geology and Reservoir Characterization
The Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG), The University of Texas at Austin, is currently initiating a long-term DOE-funded multi-disciplinary project focused on optimizing the production of oil from the residual oil zone underlying one of the largest CO2 enhanced oil recovery project in the world in the Permian Basin of Texas. We have an opening for new or recent Ph.D.’s in geology, petroleum engineering, or related fields, with expertise relevant to the following two area of interest:
Carbonate Geology and Reservoir Characterization
Experience in characterizing carbonate reservoir rocks (using skills such as petrography, stable isotope geochemistry, and SEM imagery) and in developing three dimensional models of flow units using log analysis, and 3-D seismic data. Experience with Petrel or other similar reservoir modelling tools is desirable.
We are looking for researchers with good communications skills and the desire to publish their work in international journals. BEG has leading research groups in carbonate reservoir characterization and CO2 sequestration. We also have close collaborations with faculty in departments across the UT-Austin campus, including our top rated Petroleum Engineering department. This position will be based in North Austin at the J. J. Pickle Research Campus, The University of Texas at Austin. Austin is often on the list of top 10 or top 5 places to live in the U.S.
