Dear colleagues

You were recommended by my colleague Jaime Tonney, Research Associate at the School of Geographical and Earth Sciences.

I would be very grateful if you could post the following advertisement for PhD and PostDoc opportunities for the Marie Curie EU funded project called FlowTrans.  We are particularly keen to encourage women scientists to apply.

Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss, or for further information.  Also, please let me know if there is a fee for advertising jobs with you.

Best wishes,

Dr Wendy-Louise Smith
FlowTrans Research Administrator, School of Geographical and Earth Sciences
University of Glasgow, Gregory Building, Lilybank Gardens, G12 8QQ

Please note I work on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Marie Curie Initial Training Network - FlowTrans
PhD and Post-doctoral research opportunities

11 Early Stage Researchers (ESR, PhD students) and 4 Experienced Researchers (ER, postdoc) positions available in the Marie Curie Initial Training Network FlowTrans (Flow and Transformation in Porous Media).

The FlowTrans Initial Training Network is a unique environment for career development, built on joint challenges of Industry and University partners in a newly emerging supra-disciplinary field, spanning from Physics to Earth Sciences and aiming to understand Flow in Transforming Porous Media. The network includes the Universities of Glasgow, Grenoble, Hebrew University, Strasbourg, Warsaw, Oslo, Copenhagen and Münster plus private partners Magnitude and Offshore RGE as well as associate partners CSIRO, AMPHOS 21, IEI and IRIS.

 The research themes of FLOWTRANS relate to the characterization and the understanding of fluid flow and chemical reaction within rocks and granular media. This has become an ever-increasing problem in Earth Sciences, Physics, and in many industrial applications, including CO2 sequestration, hydrocarbon migration, ore deposit development, and radioactive waste disposal. One of the main problems is the understanding of flows in transforming porous media, where the rocks and fluid pathways evolve spatially and temporally, for example due to chemical interactions with the flow, or due to compaction of the solid matrix. The dynamic feedbacks between flow, destruction of permeability due to compaction or local precipitation, and creation of permeability due to dissolution, chemical reaction or fracturing, makes understanding of such complex systems a challenge.

 Your background should come from fields such as Earth Sciences, Mineralogy, Geophysics, Material Sciences or Physics. You are a good team player and interested in new challenges. You are open to living in a new country and willing to travel to workshops and meetings with other partners. You are able to take over responsibilities and leader roles within the network and you are an excellent communicator (good command of both written and spoken English).
 We offer fellow training at the host institute and in 6 distinct network congresses in simulation, experimental, numerical and field techniques. In addition training will incorporate management, communication and career development. The FlowTrans environment is a mix between public and private sectors and fellows will visit and work with a variety of partners.

All fellows have to fulfill mobility criteria, they will not have lived more than 12 months within the last 3 years in the country of the fellowship. In addition an ESR has to have less than 4 years of research experience. An ER has to have a PhD and less than 5 years research experience OR in case of an applicant without a PhD, more than 4 but less than 5 years of research experience. Years of research experience are defined from the date of a Masters or equivalent Diploma entitling enrolment in a PhD.

 The ESR positions are planned to start around June/July 2012 and the ER positions between November 2012 and January 2013 (however, there is some flexibility).

 Please apply before 1st April 2013 to the network coordinator (daniel.koehn at glasgow.ac.uk<mailto:daniel.koehn at glasgow.ac.uk>) indicating a preferred host or directly to a partner with a letter of intent, a CV specifying that you meet the eligibility criteria (as defined above) and indicating your grades as well as the names and email addresses of two referees.
