We are always looking for motivated undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral researchers eager to participate in experimental, characterization and/or numerical projects.
The University of Calgary offers a collegial, bustling geoscience community and world-class instrumentation in a fantastic city just one hour from the Canadian Rockies. Calgary was once again ranked the 5th most liveable city in 2017 by The Economist, and has been deemed both the sunniest and cleanest city in Canada.
I maintain a strong commitment to inclusion and diversity in the geosciences, and I am dedicated to facilitating the success of any potential group members who demonstrate creativity, technical ability, and resolve. Potential group members will ideally demonstrate strong quantitative skills, an interest in (hydro)(bio)(organic)(geo)chemistry, and a desire to tackle challenging earth science problems. Students with a geoscience background are encouraged to apply, as well as those with backgrounds in materials science, engineering, computer science, physics, fluid dynamics, and/or applied mathematics.
Potential projects could include:
-Implications of evolving seawater compositions for diagenetic and/or seafloor hydrothermal processes
-CO2 storage in sub-seafloor basalts
-Reactive transport in sedimentary reservoirs
-Elevated pressure-temperature experimental and measurement technique development
-Non-traditional stable isotopic probes of water-rock interaction
Email Ben (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you're interested in these potential projects, or if you have something of your own in mind! It is never too early to start planning to join us - opportunities are evolving rapidly.
