My apologies for multiple postings!
The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University invites
applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist position in rock
mechanics. The project, a collaboration with University of California,
Davis, focuses on fundamental physics and chemistry of reaction-driven
cracking, in which volume changes due to fluid-rock reaction create
stresses leading to fracture formation. Triaxial experiments will be
conducted on peridotite samples from the Oman Drilling Project, as well as
analog materials, to map the confining pressure, differential stress and
temperature ranges in which reaction-driven cracking occurs. The
Postdoctoral Research Scientist will be expected to conduct experiments and
work with modelers in interpreting results.
A Ph.D. in rock mechanics, experimental petrology or a related discipline
is required. Experience in triaxial testing or other rock mechanics
experimentation is preferred.
Appointment will be for 1-year, with continuation pending funding and
Priority will be given to applications received by September 21, 2015.
Search will continue until the position is filled.
Please visit our online application site at
for further information about this position and to submit your application,
curriculum vitae, a research statement and contact information for three
references. We accept online applications only.
