Responsibilities/Job Description

Within the department of Geoscience and Engineering (GSE), computational methods have always been essential to simulate flow processes in the reservoir, to simulate processes of sedimentation and to characterise the subsurface properties. They are now becoming increasingly important with the birth of the GEoscience Twin for SubSurface Energy Lab (GETSS Energy Lab).

To support the development of these computational methods we are looking for a colleague that fulfills a role which includes both software development and teaching.

On the "coding side" you develop and support the development of computational tools. These tools include but are not limited to: forward modelling and inversion of electromagnetic signals, data-assimilation software, geological reservoir modelling and simulation software, and visualisation software.

To develop and increase computational skills within the department, you teach MSc, graduate and staff courses in forward and inverse geomodelling, including aspects of version control and methods for online collaboration in software development. Besides educating and supporting staff, including post-docs and PhD candidates, you will work with the research partners in our network. Time allowing, you may also be involved with the supervision of bachelor and master students as wel as PhD candidates.
