Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is the result of the merger of the University of Karlsruhe and the Research Center, Karlsruhe. It is a unique institution in Germany, which combines the mission of a university with that of a large-scale research center of the Helmholtz Association. With 8000 employees and an annual budget of EUR 650 million, KIT is one of the largest research and education institutions worldwide.
The Institute for Applied Geosciences (AGW) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has an open
Postdoctoral Position in Applied Geology
at salary grade TV-L E13. The research focus in the department of engineering geology is currently on shallow geothermal energy, nuclear waste disposal, landslides and fractured reservoir systems.
Candidates should hold a post-graduate degree (PhD) in a relevant field such as structural geology, hydrogeology, engineering geology or in a related discipline. A strong academic record and high motivation for creative research is required. Candidates must have willingness to team-work, independent thinking, and self-learning.
Your tasks will be part of the international research project called FRACS II, which is about the "Mineral Vein Dynamic Modelling" (www.fracs.de). The specific task is on the spatial and temporal upscaling of permeability changes in fractured reservoirs. Experience and knowledge in the application of numerical discrete fracture network (DFN) models such as FracMan and/or Petrel/ ECLIPSE is therefore very advantageous.
KIT is pursuing a gender equality policy. Women are therefore particularly encouraged to apply. If qualified, handicapped applicants will be preferred.
Review of the applications will start immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Please send your application including CV, peer-reviewed publications and certificates and until 15th August 2012 by post to
Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT)
