Stellenangebot: 3 year - PhD position Thermochemical reactions in petroleum and gas reservoirs

3 year - PhD position
Thermochemical reactions in petroleum and gas reservoirs

The Institute for Mineralogy at the Leibniz Universität Hannover in cooperation with the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR) in Hannover offers a 3-year PhD position. The aim of the project is to investigate reactions occurring in hydrocarbon reservoirs between organic compounds and inorganic materials at elevated temperatures and pressures. This includes reactions of hydrocarbons with oxidizing species such as sulphate (thermochemical sulphate reduction). The experimental expertise at the Institute for Mineralogy with high pressure – high temperature techniques will be combined with high-tech analytics (liquid- and gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, isotope ratio mass spectrometry) at the BGR.

Precondition for the application is a diploma, master or equivalent certificate in geosciences, mineralogy or chemistry. We are looking for a person with a strong commitment to research, a solid background in (geo)chemistry and/or geosciences, and experience in laboratory and analytical work. Very good language skills in English are required for Non-German applicants.

The PhD student will work within the research initiative on Earth Subsurface Processes at the Leibniz Universität Hannover and the BGR, but will also be integrated in national and international collaborative research efforts. Employment could start as soon as possible. Payment is ½ E13 of the collective labour agreement of the German States (TvL).

As an equal opportunity employer, the Leibniz Universität Hannover strongly encourages women to apply. Equally qualified disabled applicants will be given preference.

To ensure consideration, submit application by October 20, 2009. Applications including the common documents (CV, certificates, possible reference persons) should be sent either by mail or electronically to:
