Job description

Three postdoctoral research positions are now available at Stanford University. One postdoctoral position [ID# GEOTH-CO2] is open to highly motivated researchers interested in working on the acoustic detection and characterization of micro-fracturing induced by small-scale fluid injection into naturally fractured reservoir rocks –e.g., geothermal energy production, CO2 reuse, injection, and storage. The other two positions [ID# SCI-ENG] are particularly well-suited for individuals with strong core disciplinary competencies who also seek out innovative ideas and applications, and want to be challenged by working across disciplinary boundaries.

The ideal candidates for the open positions have a strong background in applied engineering or applied geophysics, and are interested in laboratory-based research in rock physics and chemistry, rock deformation, materials characterization, and synthesis. The postdoctoral fellows will join a collaborative interdisciplinary environment at the interface of rock physics/mechanics, materials science, and chemical engineering. You will find all the details about the positions, required qualifications, and the application process here (

Please forward this message to those who may be interested in applying.

How to apply

Interested candidates should send a cover letter including date of availability, suitability, and motivation for the role, their CV, research interest(s), and the contact information of their references to Liliane Pereira ( by October 18th, 2021. Review of applications will continue until a suitable applicant is found. Please include the position ID# in the email subject.
