Job description

Being “The Research University in Helmholtz Association”, KIT creates and imparts knowledge for the society and the environment. It is the objective to make significant contributions to the global challenges in the fields of energy, mobility, and information. For this, about 9,300 employees cooperate in a broad range of disciplines in natural sciences. KIT prepares its 26,000 students for responsible tasks in society, industry, and science by offering research-based study programs. Innovation efforts at KIT build a bridge between important scientific findings and their application for the benefit of society, economic prosperity, and the preservation of our natural basis of life.

The Institute of Applied Geosciences (AGW) invites applications for the position of a

Scientist (m/f) in Applied Geology with 67% part-time

as soon as possible, limited up to 3 years.

The research focus in the department of engineering geology is currently on geothermal energy, nuclear waste disposal, landslides and fractured reservoirs. The specific task is on modelling hydro-mechanical processes in fractured rocks. Possibility to a PhD additional to the scientific work is given.
Candidates should hold a graduate degree (MSc) in a relevant field such as applied geology, structural geology, hydrogeology, engineering geology, geophysics or in a related discipline. A high motivation for creative research is required. Candidates should have the willingness to team-work, independent thinking and self-learning. The specific task is on modelling coupled hydro-mechanical (HM) processes in fractured rocks. Experience and knowledge in the application of numerical models is therefore very advantageous.

We prefer to balance the number of female and male employees. Therefore we kindly ask female applicants to apply for this job. If qualified, handicapped applicants will be preferred.

Please apply online until 10, July 2018 using the vacancy no. 215/2018 and the reference number 6. Personnel Support is provided by Mr Barny, Karlsruher Institut für Technologie, Personalservice, Campus Nord, Hermann-von-Helmholtz-Platz 1, 76344 Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen.
