Earth Project Scientist (Energy Geosciences) - 83753
Organization: GO-Energy Geosciences

Berkeley Lab (LBNL, http://www.lbl.gov/) addresses the world’s most urgent scientific challenges by advancing sustainable energy, protecting human health, creating new materials, and revealing the origin and fate of the universe. Founded in 1931, Berkeley Lab’s scientific expertise has been recognized with 13 Nobel prizes. The University of California manages Berkeley Lab for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

Position Summary:
Berkeley Lab’s Energy Geosciences Division (https://eesa.lbl.gov/our-divisions/energy-geosciences/) has an opening for a Earth Project Scientist. Within this position you will participate in research on subsurface coupled processes, including thermal, hydraulic, and geomechanical processes associated with a range of geoscientific and geoengineering applications, including geothermal energy extraction and geologic carbon sequestration.

What You Will Do:
• Conduct research on subsurface coupled processes, including thermal, hydraulic, and geomechanical processes associated with a range of geoscientific and geoengineering applications, including geothermal energy extraction and geologic carbon sequestration.
• Collect and analyze field data and application of coupled processes numerical modeling to interpret field data.
• Publish and present research results in peer-review journals conference papers and reports.

What is Required:
• Ph.D. or equivalent experience in rock mechanics, geology, hydrogeology or related field.
• Extensive experience in geology, rock mechanics, and hydrogeology, including geological mapping, field data collection and analysis, and numerical modeling.
• Advanced skills in applications of numerical models such a TOUGH-family codes to simulate interactions of fluid flow, temperature and geomechanical stresses.
• Documented ability to publish research results in scientific journals.  
• Ability to lift 10-20 lbs; climbing or balancing on ladders/scaffolding.
• Ability to walk into difficult terrain and underground mines for field data collection and installation of field monitoring equipment.  

Additional Desired Qualifications:
• Several years of experience in analyzing field problems related to reservoir engineering, deep fluid injection and induced seismicity.

The posting shall remain open until the position is filled, however for full consideration, please apply by close of business on June 6, 2017.

Notes:
• This is a full time 1 year term appointment with the possibility of extension based upon satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds and ongoing operational needs.
