Job description

This position has a focus in geohydrology coupled to other processes such as seismicity (induced by fluid injection) and rock mechanical and thermal phenomena. Duties include research, teaching and administration.

PhD in relevant Earth Sciences discipline such as geohydrology, rock mechanics, geophysics, or in petroleum or water resources engineering or related field is expected. The ranking of eligible applicants will be based primarily on research and teaching expertise, of which of which weight will be primarily given to research expertise. In assessing research expertise, special weight will be attached to research merits and demonstrated experience in geohydrology in the context of coupled processes, such as coupled hydro-mechanical processes, including modeling and model development of them. Experience in experimental studies, in field and laboratory measurement techniques and interpretation of measurement data is also a merit. In evaluating teaching expertise, special consideration will be put on teaching experience in the areas of hydrology, geohydrology and geohydrological modeling, fluid mechanics, and rock/soil mechanics.
