EXTENDED: Postdoc in innovative material solutions for civil engineering (BB-421EC)

Found in: Neuvoo DK


Job description

/project description
In oil and gas industry, scale deposition in pipelines not only poses many serious threats in field production during the well lifetime but also in the abandonment phase when the well reaches the lifetime. Handling the huge amounts of scale is a cumbersome challenge for the industry.

This project focuses on finding innovative and effective solutions to use scale as a barrier material for well abandonment. A primary concept in consideration is to strengthen existing scale formed in the production pipes, which can then be used as part of the barriers in the abandonment. The initial emphasis in the study will be laid on the mechanical properties and permeability of the strengthened scale composite.

The successful candidate will join an ambitious international research team. As a Postdoc, you are expected to autonomously carry out research work assigned by the responsible PI. You co-supervise students (PhD, MSc and BSc) in their projects. You expand your research portfolio, and you represent our research group through publications and presentations at international conferences. You may also contribute to teaching activities.

Your profile
  • Applicants should hold a PhD in material sciences, civil engineering (materials) or relevant
  • Strong expertise within experimental work, especially related to engineering materials
  • Documented experience in scientific writing and publication in peer reviewed scientific journals
  • Experience in developing competitive research applications
  • Research experience on calcite formation, bio-cementation, thermodynamic modeling in geochemical contexts is a plus
  • Self-motivated, pro-active, team- and goal-oriented personality
  • Full command of the English language
  • Place of Work
    The place of work is Inge Lehmanns Gade 10 (Navitas), 8000 Aarhus, and the area of employment is the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University.
