Job Description

The Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS) is seeking a Research Associate to participate in a two-year DOE-funded project on Carbon Management. The project will involve assessing and modeling sites for future storage of CO2, using techniques common in Petroleum Engineering/Geology. The Research Associate will compile existing data and samples from the Oklahoma Geological Survey data and sample repository, and use software packages like Petrel and Arc-GIS to develop geologic models to assess CO2 storage potential. The Research Associate will interact with five Oklahoma Geological Survey staff and University of Oklahoma faculty, and two Research Assistants tasked with geophysical monitoring and integrating communities from around the state of Oklahoma and Native American communities. The appointment has two-years of guaranteed funding with opportunities for future funding.

Ph.D., or M.Sc. with experience, in Geosciences or Engineering with a focus on subsurface storage and/or flow modeling. Proficiency in Petrel and familiarity with Arc-GIS software packages preferred. Some record of publications, funding history or equivalent industry experience, is desirable.
