Job Title: Postdoctoral Fellow on Water-Energy Issues
Sponsor: University of Texas at Austin, Bureau of Economic Geology (Jackson School of Geosciences)
Location: Austin, TX
Start Date: Position is available at earliest possible date
The University of Texas at Austin, Bureau of Economic Geology, is seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellow to assess water-energy issues related to oil and gas production considering water quantity and quality aspects, water reuse/recycling, and water treatment. The candidate will be expected to compile data on water used and produced with oil and gas and on management of produced water, including disposal, reuse/recycling, and related treatment requirements. Conducting interdisciplinary research will be essential as the candidate will be required to work in an integrated team of hydrologists, engineers, and economists. The candidate should be familiar with basic concepts in water resources and have a demonstrated ability to conduct independent research. Expertise with Geographic Information Systems (ArcGIS) and Matlab, R, or similar programming language is strongly preferred. The candidate will be required to have a Ph.D. in Geology/Hydrogeology, Civil/Petroleum/Environmental Engineering, Environmental Science, or a related field. The postdoctoral fellow position is available for one year with potential to extend for an additional two years, depending on performance.
Compile data on water use and production with oil and gas, and management of produced water, including disposal, reuse/recycling and related treatment requirements. Conduct interdisciplinary research. Write papers and give presentations communicating results.
Ph.D in Geology/Hydrogeology, Civil/Petroleum, or Environmental Engineering, or Environmental Science, or related field. Familiarity with basic concepts in water resources.
