Post Doc Experimental Geochemist - GNS Science (2 years) - Thermochemistry of supercritical geothermal systems, Taupo Volcanic Zone New Zealand
We are seeking a post-doctoral level researcher with a strong interest in laboratory studies of fluid-rock interactions in super critical geothermal systems. The research will include laboratory simulations of fluid-rock interactions, re-injection of off-gases from geothermal facilities (CO2, H2S), and tracer chemical stability at super critical conditions. The successful candidate will engage with other Wairakei geochemists in discussion of geothermal chemistry and other aspects pertaining to geothermal systems. Depending on the applicant's background, specialist skills may cover one or more of reactive transport modelling, experimental geochemistry, and products of fluid-rock-material interaction with fluids. The goal is to task the post-doctorate team member with complementing and advancing the specialised experimental geochemistry skills currently present within the group.
We are seeking a person with substantial experience and expertise in the field of geochemical reactions in heat temperature and pressure environments. The successful candidate will be expected to:
Candidates will show flexibility, innovation and a commitment to quality. People skills, teamwork, and the ability to approach and interact with a range of people are also a must.
The ideal candidate will have the following:
The position is for 2 years, in Wairakei Research Centre, Taupo, New Zealand.
