Research Staff

Postdoctoral Fellow

Job Code: R_00016282

Purpose: Analyis of Earthquake data and Industrial Operations to provide semi-empirical statistical models to identify existing correlations/associations and future trends to mitigate potential impacts on infrastructure. Model-inputs might include earthquake data, hydrogeological characteristics, oil and gas operations, stress-change models and ground deformation estimates (e.g. InSAR, GPS).

Functions: Provide novel research on semi-empirical statistical models linking human operations to the evolving seismicity rates in Texas and New Mexico. The goal is to be able to construct probabilistic forecasts of the spatio-temporal distribution of seismicity in response to energy-related human activities. Present in stakeholder meetings and conferences. Publish in peer reviewed journals. Contribute to collaborative research modeling stress changes in the subsurface due to fluid injection/extraction operations, to validate potential identification of causal factors. The results could be integrated in a regional time-dependent seismic hazard model estimating earthquake-induced ground-motions.

Carbonate Sedimentologist Research Associate

Job Code: R_00016052-1

Purpose: The RCRL group seeks a full-time researcher to develop areas of existing and emerging research on carbonate systems as it relates to applied subsurface geology. Candidates that have experience in mixed carbonate-siliciclastics stratigraphy and sedimentology are preferred. The position requires performing multiple research projects that advance the research goals of the RCRL Industrial Associates program and combines fundamental knowledge of carbonate stratigraphy and sedimentology with applied subsurface geology to define and execute research that contributes to both academic and subsurface characterization knowledge leading to publications in international, peer-reviewed journals. Research must generate interest with research sponsors and lead to funded projects. Excellent technical communication skills are required as research results are communicated with project sponsors, both locally and at remote locations, numerous times per year.

Functions: Carbonate research. Knowledge and technology transfer. Project administration. Supervision of student employee.
