Job description

Job summary

Applications are invited for a Research Associate to join the Novel Reservoir Monitoring, Modelling and Simulation (NORMS) Laboratory in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering.

This is an exciting opportunity for a talented individual to work within a large multi-disciplinary research group, developing and applying advanced experimental techniques to problems of broad interest and significance in Earth Science. The post forms part of a large, cross-disciplinary and multi-institution research project (CuBES – Copper Basin Exploration Science – funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). The overall aim of this large consortium project is to understand the processes within sedimentary basins that form copper ore deposits.

Duties and responsibilities

In this role, you will use experimental methods to investigate the flow of copper-rich fluids in sedimentary basins. Flow of such fluids and associated reaction with the surrounding rocks is a critically important part of the system that delivers copper to form ore bodies in sedimentary rocks, yet the coupled chemical and fluid dynamical processes that occur remain poorly understood. There is a significant gap in knowledge that will be explored within this project. Discovery and responsible exploitation of these copper deposits makes an essential contribution to the energy transition.

Essential requirements

To be eligible for this position you must meet the following criteria:

  • You should possess a PhD, or equivalent, in a subject area such as Physics, Chemistry, Engineering or Geoscience.
  • You should have experience in experimental procedures involving fluids, pumps and pressure vessels.
  • You should preferably have experience in flow experiments using porous materials such as rocks.
  • Experience of preparation and chemical analysis of brines would be advantageous.

Further information

This is a fixed term post for up to 15 months.

Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as a Research Assistant within the salary range £36,045 - £39,183 per annum.

Informal inquiries about the position can be made to Professor Matthew D. Jackson (+44 20775946538 / m.d.jackson@imperial.ac.uk). 

The College is a proud signatory to the San-Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), which means that in hiring and promotion decisions, we evaluate applicants on the quality of their work, not the journal impact factor where it is published. For more information, see https://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-evaluation/

The College believes that the use of animals in research is vital to improve human and animal health and welfare. Animals may only be used in research programmes where their use is shown to be necessary for developing new treatments and making medical advances. Imperial is committed to ensuring that, in cases where this research is deemed essential, all animals in the College’s care are treated with full respect, and that all staff involved with this work show due consideration at every level. http://www.imperial.ac.uk/research-and-innovation/about-imperial-research/research-integrity/animal-research

Imperial College is committed to equality of opportunity, to eliminating discrimination and to creating an inclusive working environment. We are an Athena SWAN Silver award winner, a Stonewall Diversity Champion, a Disability Confident Employer and work in partnership with GIRES to promote respect for trans people.
