Lecturer / Senior Lecturer / Reader: Geo-Energy Engineering


Closing date: 22/02/2022

The James Watt School of Engineering (JWSE) at the University of Glasgow is an energetic and growing international centre of excellence for Engineering research and teaching. The School leads research in Aerospace Sciences; Autonomous Systems & Connectivity; Biomedical Engineering; Electronics and Nanoscale Engineering; Infrastructure and Environment; and Systems, Power and Energy. We have in the region of 140 academics and 180 postdoctoral researchers supported by more than 60 technicians and almost 30 professional services staff. Currently we have 450 research students working towards doctorates.

We are seeking to fill a position for an ambitious academic to join the Division of Systems, Power and Energy, specifically related to the acceleration of the geo-energy transition. Example research areas include: resource assessment for the strategic modelling and planning of net-zero production and storage projects; reconciliation of subsurface potential with surface demand/supply; repurposing of legacy energy assets. Expertise of the successful applicant may span: opportunity mapping based on geological, petrophysical and geophysical characterisation of the subsurface; development of modelling and/or experimental best-practices to de-risk the subsurface; integration of physical measurements and models in Digital Twins to help decision-making.

The post holders will join a vibrant environment with world leading groups in Energy and Sustainability, and a School-wide Net Zero Challenge. The James Watt School of Engineering hosts fundamental research that is developed with the ambition to lead to industrial and academic impact. We expect the successful academic to complement and synergise with existing activities and to develop a network of collaborations locally (across the School of Engineering and the University) as well as to liaise with industry and clinicians to translate their research to the highest impact.

For more information about this position please contact Prof. Sandy Cochran, Head of Division of Systems, Power and Energy ([email protected]).
