Together our staff and students are discovering innovative ways to change the world for the better and there has never been a more exciting time for you to join us. We are ranked in the top 1% of universities worldwide and have an international reputation for excellence in teaching and research. We are led by discovery and innovation, with the synergy between research and learning at the core of our activity.
A Research Associate (Earth Scientist) is required to join an established team engaged in the acquisition and analysis of petrophysical core and borehole measurement data for the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) and other drilling/coring research projects. This is an exciting position which will provide the leading edge science needed for a future career in academia or the logging/petrophysical experience for a career in industry. This research is a collaborative venture between the University of Leicester and a number of other universities and organisations in Europe, USA, Japan and other IODP member countries.
This fixed-term post requires the Research Associate to participate in two IODP Mission Specific Platform expeditions:
Expedition 381 Corinth Active Rift Development: the post-holder will participate in a technical capacity during the onshore phase of this expedition during early 2018. This will provide significant on-the-job training in terms of the structure of IODP and importantly hands-on experience with a wide variety of physical properties equipment (including, line scanners, multi-sensor core loggers, thermal conductivity probes, and pentapyconmeter). This will involve approximately six weeks at the Bremen Core Repository (BCR, Germany).
Expedition 377 Arctic Ocean Paleoceanography: contingent on their performance during Expedition 381, it is anticipated the post-holder will be the Petrophysics Staff Scientist for this expedition in 2018/19. They will have responsibility for the downhole logging and core physical properties programmes for the expedition and as a member of the Expedition Science Party will be expected to submit a research proposal to support a post-cruise research project centred on the petrophysical data acquired during the expedition. The project will require the post-holder to spend at least 2 months at sea and up to 6 weeks at the Bremen Core Repository.
We are looking for candidates with a research background in petrophysics, marine geology or geophysics. You will have the proven ability to integrate quickly and easily as a member of the international shipboard and onshore teams, an exceptionally high level of initiative, and a capacity to identify and solve problems.
