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.
Duties and responsibilities
The research position is part of an EPSRC funded project focused on understanding the limitations imposed by geology and geography on the scaleup of CO2 storage to rates required to achieve climate change mitigation targets. The use of quantitative modelling tools, e.g., commercial reservoir simulators like ECLIPSE, and numerical toolboxes in MATLAB and/or Python, will be integral to the analysis.
Applicants should hold a PhD (or equivalent) in Earth Science or engineering or related disciplines that would provide applicable background and skills, e.g., fluid dynamics, civil engineering, chemical engineering. The ideal candidate will have experience using numerical simulation to model fluid flow in the subsurface, although candidates with experience in numerical simulation of other processes are welcome. The candidate will have a proven ability to carry out research with both peer reviewed publications and presentations at international conferences.
This is a fixed term position until the 31st March 2022.
Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant salary range £36,045 - £39,183 per annum.
Further information and informal inquiries about the position, applicants should contact Dr. Sam Krevor, via the following email address: email@example.com .

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level.
