Post-Doctoral position in geophysics for research projects employing cross-borehole ERT and IP methods

The HydroGeophysics Group (HGG) at Department of Geoscience at Aarhus University advertises a postdoc position within electric resistivity tomography (ERT), induced polarization (IP), and numerical modelling. The position is anchored in an on-going research project, GIREM (Guided Injection Remediation), where cross-borehole ERT and IP methods are used to map and monitor remediation projects at contaminated sites.

The starting date is as soon as possible and the position has a duration of 2 years.

The applicant will be part of a group of scientists, engineers, software developers, postdocs, and PhD students from all over the world. The research group covers many aspects within geophysics including building instruments, development of inversion software, and applying TEM, ERT/IP and MRS methods in projects with focus on mapping and monitoring of groundwater, hydrogeology, raw materials, and contaminations.

Job description
The successful applicant will be expected to lead the development of numerical modelling code of cross-borehole 3D ERT and IP data within the GIREM project. This includes further development and testing of an existing 3D ERT/IP modelling and inversion code as well as additional optimization with regards to parallelization and cloud computing.

The applicant is also expected to contribute to data acquisition, planning fieldwork, testing new ERT/IP instruments, designing measurement protocols, improving data processing techniques, and planning data flow from the field to the final inversion model together with the other PhDs and postdocs in the GIREM project.

Furthermore, together with other scientists in the group, the applicant will be required to write scientific paper to be submitted to international peer reviewed journals. The applicant will co-supervise PhD students, master students, and bachelor students and will also be expected to contribute to undergraduate/graduate courses taught by researchers at HGG.

Qualifications
Education: PhD degree in Geophysics/Hydrogeophysics from a renowned institution/university.

Experience:

  1. Experience and proven expertise in near-surface geophysical data acquisition, data processing, imaging, and inversion.
  2. Experience and proven expertise in programming and numerical modeling. Preferably experience with Fortran and Matlab.
  3. Experience and proven expertise in high performance computing including OpenMP parallelization.
  4. The applicant is expected to have written several scientific papers and have large experience presenting scientific results at conferences and meetings.
  5. Previous experience in supervising/teaching bachelor/master/PhD students is a benefit.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to ensure that letters of reference received after the application deadline will be taken into consideration.

Formalities and salary range
Natural Sciences refers to the Ministerial Order on the Appointment of Academic Staff at Danish Universities under the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.

The application must be in English and include a curriculum vitae, degree certificate, a complete list of publications, a statement of future research plans and information about research activities, teaching portfolio and verified information on previous teaching experience (if any). Guidelines for applicants can be found here.

Appointment shall be in accordance with the collective labour agreement between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. Further information on qualification requirements and job content may be found in the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff at Danish Universities.

Salary depends on seniority as agreed between the Danish Ministry of Finance and the Confederation of Professional Associations.

All interested candidates are encouraged to apply, regardless of their personal background. Research activities will be evaluated in relation to actual research time. Thus, we encourage applicants to specify periods of leave without research activities, in order to be able to subtract these periods from the span of the scientific career during the evaluation of scientific productivity.
