I would like to bring to your attention two posts that are available at the Department of Earth Science, University of Bergen and I’d be grateful if you would forward this information to any potentially interested colleagues:
1. A permanent academic post at Associate Professor level in structural geology and/or sedimentology with a focus on reservoir characterization and modeling (closing date: 15 September 2010).
2. A three-year postdoctoral fellowship in 3D seismic interpretation and/or seismic geomorphology applied to sedimentology and/or structural geology (closing date: 30 September 2010).
I have provided short summaries of each of the available positions at the bottom of this e-mail and if anyone would like further information they can contact me directly by e-mail to: [log in to unmask]
More detailed information on both these posts and, importantly, details on how to apply can be found at:
At UiB, the department’s research activity is organized within five major research groups that have strong interdisciplinary links. The key research groups are focused on Geodynamics, Marine Geology and Geophysics, Petroleum Geoscience, Geobiology, and Quaternary Geology and Palaeoclimate. The department is affiliated with the university’s three centres of excellence: the Centre for Integrated Petroleum Research, the Centre for Geobiology, and the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research. It has close cooperation with the Bergen Museum, other faculty departments and industry (particularly the upstream petroleum sector). Both posts will be hosted within the Petroleum Geoscience Group. More information on the Department can be obtained from www.uib.no/geo

Associate Professor in Reservoir Geology (closing date 15 September 2010)
We are looking for an active researcher with both fundamental research expertise and professional experience in sedimentary and/or structural geology of petroleum reservoirs. Ideally candidates should have experience in one or more of the following disciplines: characterization, analysis and modelling of subsurface reservoirs, outcrop analogue studies, digital imaging of outcrops/reservoirs, interpretation of 3D seismic geomorphology or basin structure, and numerical simulation of sedimentation processes/systems. Broad experience from field research and/or work in industrial reservoir-study units will be considered advantageous. It is expected that the applicant’s personal research interests and activity will contribute significantly to those of the department’s Petroleum Geoscience Group. The applicants should document their skills for collaboration within and outside a research group, as well as their ability to lead research projects and obtain external funding for research.
Note that a willingness to learn Norwegian is expected, but not essential for teaching. There is also an open possibility for the successful applicant to seek promotion to a Professor position.
Postdoctoral Fellow (3 year) in 3D seismic interpretation and/or seismic geomorphology (Closing date 30 September 2010)
We wish to attract an active researcher with proven research experience in seismic interpretation of sedimentary and/or structural geology who will help lead a team of postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers under the supervision of Professor Rob Gawthorpe. Expertise in one or more of: i) quantitative seismic geomorphology of depositional systems, ii) structural characterisation of fault/fold growth, iii) seismic imaging of fluid flow in sedimentary basins, iv) structural style of mobile substrates, and v) sedimentary processes along continental margins would complement existing projects. Furthermore, experience of working with, and supporting, large 3D seismic projects and/or working with the petroleum industry will be considered advantageous. It is a prerequisite that a PhD dissertation has been approved before appointment is granted.
