Do you have experience and knowledge in both core flooding and reservoir flow simulation and get motivated by tackling complex and integrated experimental challenges? We are currently seeking a skilled Reservoir Engineer/Scientist to join our dynamic ‘CSIRO Energy’ team in Perth, and it could be the next career step you’re looking for!
Reservoir engineering and science work at CSIRO involves research into injectivity, migration and trapping for geological carbon storage, and storage of future fuels including hydrogen. We also perform research into other forms of subsurface geological storage, such as hydrogen, nuclear and compressed air. Our research in this field creates impact in decarbonisation of the economy to support Australian government and industry in achieving net zero emissions. CSIRO is home to world-class laboratories and research infrastructure, which are focused on delivering R&D solutions to enable safe, commercial-scale storage of carbon dioxide and low-emissions fuels.
Joining our ‘Reservoir Productivity’ team, you will play a key role in developing analytical and decision-making capability, based on your understanding of CO2 rock fluid behaviour at core and field scales. You will have been actively involved in a range of projects to characterize reservoir injectivity and will bring your domain knowledge & practical expertise to confidently manage research in collaboration with industry partners. You will manage the core flooding facilities at CSIRO’s ARRC laboratories and have the primary responsibility for design and delivery of lab experiments as well as supervise and upskill lab technicians and junior researchers when required. In this ongoing role, you will have opportunities to collaborate with a range of stakeholders, including other science leaders within CSIRO’s Energy Resources Research Program as well as industry and government. This position is a critical role within our program and provides a great platform to advance your experimental and flow modelling skills to progress your research career.
