Faculty position in Geo-Engineering (CO2 Sequestration)

EPFL's School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering seeks a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Geo-Engineering focusing on CO2 Sequestra­tion.

The future success of CO2 sequestration in deep, geologically secure formations, either on-shore or off-shore, remains un­certain due to numerous technical, engi­neering and scientific challenges. The challenges include, basic understanding of the physico-me­chanical and biogeochemical processes involved, the role of geological controls on long term storage, methods of locating sites and monitoring their per­formance, technology development, and combined storage and hydrocarbon re­covery.

We seek applications from highly quali­fied engineers and engineering scientists committed to a career in research and teaching. Applications are welcomed from all the disciplines pertinent to CO2 se­questration, including, but not limited to, geological, geo­chemical, environmental and civil engi­neering. The successful applicant will have potential for developing a research profile characte­rized by novel accomplishments, com­petitive grant funding and an interdiscipli­nary, collaborative vision. A broad vision of geo-engineering is sought, as is the ability to collaborate across disciplines.

Successful candidates are expected to ini­tiate independent research pro­grams and participate in undergra­duate and graduate teaching. Substantial start-up resources will be available. We offer inter­nationally competitive salaries and bene­fits.

Applications should include a résumé with a list of publications, a concise statement of re­search and teaching interests, and the names and addresses (including e-mail) of at least four referees. Appli­cations should be submitted electronically to 
professeurs.epfl.ch/page85628.html - Deadline: 15 May 2010, when formal screening of applications will begin.

Informal enquiries may be made to: byProfessor D. Andrew Barry - mailto: andrew.barry@epfl.ch
