Job opportunities – Imperial College London
Applications are invited for an Experimental Officer to join a multidisciplinary project whose aim is to stretch our fundamental understanding of rock properties, fluid properties and multiphase fluid flow in reservoirs, and to demonstrate the applicability of these tools for the design of CO2 storage and enhanced oil recovery. There will be a strong focus on imaging from the pore-scale to the Darcy scale and modelling to design and predict multi-phase flow behaviour in porous rocks. The project will be hosted in the Department of Earth Science & Engineering and in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London as part of the Digital Rocks Lab under the supervision of Professor Martin Blunt, Professor Martin Trusler, Dr Sam Krevor and Dr. Ronny Pini. The Digital Rocks Lab is a 4 year programme started in January 2021, funded by Shell.
Applications are invited for a Research Associate (i.e. postdoctoral researcher) position to join the vibrant research group of Dr. Sam Krevor in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering at Imperial College London. This research group focuses on problems of subsurface fluid flow and chemical reaction with geologic strata in application to CO2 storage. The group contains a diverse group of approximately 10 researchers (PhD students and postdocs) with a wide range of backgrounds and experience in Earth Science and Engineering.
We are looking for colleagues to complement and enrich our existing research and teaching activities, with particular interest in data science or machine learning, and their application to pure, applied or engineering problems related to Earth Science, Planetary Science, Environmental Science, or Remote Sensing and Imaging.
Situated in the heart of South Kensington’s museum district, the Department of Earth Science and Engineering at Imperial College London employs ~55 academic and teaching staff members and ~75 postdoctoral research scientists supported by a team of ~30 professional and technical staff. Our academics and researchers are at the cutting edge of discovering how Earth and planetary systems work and how natural resources and energy can be sustainably extracted and utilized, using a combination of pure and applied research. We are a multidisciplinary and diverse community that promotes inclusive and collaborative work. We have strong ties with other departments and institutes across Imperial College London and collaborate with colleagues both nationally and internationally.
Our research is wide-ranging and is performed across three sections: Computational Geoscience and Engineering, Earth & Planets and Natural Resources Geoscience and Engineering. Our teaching portfolio combines traditional Undergraduate and Masters-level Earth Science courses with pioneering programs in Earth & Planetary Science (UG), Applied Computational Science and Engineering (MSc) and Environmental Data Science and Machine Learning (MSc).
