3 postdoctoral fellowships and 1 research fellow (PhD position) available in the MultiRifts Project, Department of Earth Science
The MultiRifts Project is a new three-year collaborative research effort by the Universities of Bergen, Oslo, Manchester and Imperial College London and is funded by the Research Council of Norway through the Petromaks programme and Statoil ASA. The project will investigate the structural, topographic and sedimentary development of rift basins and normal fault zones where pre-existing structure heterogeneity within the basement and/or cover affect rift and normal growth. The project will be organized in three themes:
Theme 1: Analysis of subsurface data from the North Sea rift system.
1. Research fellow (PhD candidate) in Theme 1. Structural geology of multiphase rift basins (based on subsurface data analysis)
Theme Leaders: Professor Haakon Fossen, Associate Professor Atle Rotevatn and Professor Rob Gawthorpe (e-mail: email@example.com)
2. Postdoctoral fellow in Theme 1. Structural geology of multiphase rift basins (based on subsurface data analysis)
Theme Leaders: Professor Haakon Fossen, Associate Professor Atle Rotevatn, Professor Rob Gawthorpe (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org)
3. Postdoctoral fellow in Theme 2. Coupled 2D and 3D geodynamic and surface process modelling of rift basins
4. Postdoctoral fellow in Theme 3. Syn-rift surface processes
There is a common deadline for all applications of 01 February 2012.
