Deep Earth Imaging Postdoctoral Fellow
Australia's future minerals, energy and water resources will come from greater depths in the onshore regions and from deep offshore plays. Our ability to find, define and exploit mineral resources is limited by a deep and complex regolith that covers about 80% of the Australian land mass. Undiscovered conventional oil and gas lies in deeper or more subtle traps, or else will come from unconventional sources onshore that require new geophysical methods to quantify. Deep Earth Imaging science will help us more precisely image and understand the significance of subsurface rock properties, which in turn will unlock the resource potential of this vast and relatively under-explored continent.
As a part of this effort, we seek an outstanding early career researcher with a background in Structural Geology with significant experience in numerical modelling/simulation as a new member of a growing, world-leading team of 25 researchers. The successful candidate will develop geostatistical and/or numerical simulations of faults and fractures to examine the effects structural features have on deep fluid migration. The primary research will focus on mineral systems, with a secondary focus on groundwater system modelling and management, and hydrocarbon exploration.
Postdoctoral Fellowships at CSIRO provide opportunities to scientists and engineers who have completed their doctoral studies and who have less than three years of relevant postdoctoral work experience.
