|The Institute of Geology at RWTH Aachen University (Germany) invites applications for a
3-years, fully funded research position in the field of advanced 3D seismic interpretation of carbonate systems. Depending on the applicants qualification the appointment will be either on the PhD - or Postdoctoral level. Initial research will focus on the 3D mapping and analysis of cool-water and tropical carbonates offshore Western Australia. Data available include two 3D seismic blocks, around 24,000 km regional 2D seismic lines and industry wells. The successful candidate will be working in close collaboration with Dr. Lars Reuning, Dr. Stefan Back and Prof. Peter Kukla.
We seek a talented and creative candidate with a broad geological and geophysical background and preferably experience in carbonate sedimentology, seismic interpretation techniques and/or 3D analysis and visualization of geological features. At the post-doctoral level, the successful candidate is expected to participate in undergraduate teaching (courses, field schools) with a teaching load of 2 hours/week.
Applicants for the PhD position should hold a diploma or equivalent degree in geosciences or related subjects. Postdoctoral applicants must hold a PhD degree from a recognized university.
