Denmark wants to take a leading role in the green transition of energy sources as it holds vast geothermal resources and subsurface storage potential, for instance storage of CO2, hot water and hydrogen. The Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) is actively engaged in the evaluation, de-risking, and optimization of the numerous ongoing geo-energy and storage projects by applying our multi-disciplinary and integrated expertise and research.

GEUS invites applicants for a 4-year researcher position within carbonate sedimentology in Department of Geo-energy and Storage, starting from the 1st of November 2022.

Carbonate rocks constitute a large part of the Danish and Greenlandic sedimentary succession in the subsurface. As many construction and energy/storage related activities operate in carbonate rocks it is vital that our knowledge base about these rocks is continuously developed. In Greenland the carbonate succession is host to critical minerals for the green energy transition. Furthermore, carbonate rocks represent a significant record of paleoclimatic record throughout geological time.

Job description
This position will strengthen GEUS' competencies within characterization of carbonate rocks in Denmark and Greenland in support of the green transition and further expand the geological mapping of Greenland. In Denmark, this position will contribute to assess the suitability of the chalk for storing CO2 to meet the national CO2 reduction target. The position also entails development and coordination of a microscope infrastructure (SEM, CL, light-microscopy). The position includes field work in Greenland to characterize carbonate outcrops and associated mineralizations.

The candidate is expected to contribute to multidisciplinary research projects, publish peer reviewed papers, prepare technical reports, advice authorities and industry stakeholders as well as participate in scientific dissemination activities.

Your qualifications
The candidate must hold a PhD degree in carbonate sedimentology displaying experience with a broad range of technologies such as SEM-based analyses, CT scans, X-ray fluorescence etc. typically used in the description of carbonate rocks. Experience with fieldwork in arctic regions would be a benefit.

Special consideration will be given to candidates who have documented track record of grant application writing and funding and documented experience with advising industry and/or authorities. Excellent written and verbal communication skills, and experience with publishing peer-reviewed scientific papers are also important.

The successful candidate should be proficient in both Danish and English. Non-Danish speaking applicants are required to learn Danish to a reasonable level within the first 12 months of employment.

Department of Geo-energy and Storage
The department carries out research and research-based consulting within subsurface energy and storage matters. We also act as advisors to authorities and the Danish Ministry for Climate, Energy and Utilities. The work at the department is largely shaped by the UN sustainability goals #6 (sustainable energy) and #13 (climate), which are reflected in the GEUS strategy. With the current political engagement towards carbon neutrality, a growing activity level within CO2 storage, energy storage, and geothermal projects is anticipated in the near future. There are approximately 25 employees in the department including researchers, consultants and laboratory technicians. The department includes 2 fully equipped inhouse laboratories: Advanced Core flow Laboratory and Organic chemistry and Petrography Laboratory.

We offer

  • A creative and interdisciplinary research environment
  • A lively and informal working environment with talented and dedicated colleagues
  • Versatile work duties and good opportunities to influence them
  • Development opportunities with access to courses and other further education
  • Family friendly workplace with flextime
  • An active social environment, with a staff association and art society
  • Fitness centre with physiotherapy at the workplace

Salary and conditions of employment
In accordance with the collective agreements between the Danish Ministry of Taxation and the relevant eligible trade union.

The appointment area is the Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Utilities and its institutions.

The Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Utilities considers diversity to be an asset and invites anybody interested, regardless of gender, age, religion or ethnicity to apply for the position.

Please contact the Head of Department Maj Wendorff on tel. +45 91333451, e-mail: mw@geus.dk.

International applicants can read more about living and working in Denmark on GEUS’ homepage: http://eng.geus.dk/about/jobs/

Application
The application must include a letter of motivation, a CV, a list of publications with a separate indication of journal papers that are registered in ISI Web of Science, copies of any individual publications of particular relevance to the position and, if relevant, contact details of referees (max. 2). PhD diploma, as well as a summary of the PhD or other material that can document qualifications at research scientist level must be enclosed.

Submitted PhD theses that have not yet been defended may be sent with the application and will be included in the assessment. The PhD thesis must be approved by the University prior to appointment.

You can send your application by clicking on the “Apply for position”. Your application must be with GEUS no later than 12.00 midday (Danish time), Thursday 28 July 2022.
Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.

The appointment procedure
An expert academic assessment committee consisting of two internal senior researchers will make an individual evaluation of applicants’ academic qualifications, where candidates are deemed qualified or non-qualified in relation to the position advertised. Then an appointments committee decide which of the qualified candidates they want to call for a job interview. The procedure is in accordance with “Circular on the appointment and assessment of academic staff at the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland”, Sections 4 and 7.
