Lecturer/Senior Lecturer Engineering Science at The University of Auckland

Closing date: 3rd July 2015

The University of Auckland is seeking to make two appointments.

  • The first of the new appointees will join thegeothermal reservoir engineering group. It is envisaged that this staff member will develop new reservoir engineering modelling approaches and will apply them to modelling geothermal fields. 
  • The second appointment is to be made within the wider area of computational mechanics, ideally with a solid mechanics or geomechanics focus.

The successful applicant for both roles will have strong computational modelling skills, and a focus on using mathematics to understand the fundamental physical processes involved in the topics they address. The successful applicant will be expected to build and lead a program of international quality research and undertake PhD research supervision in the geothermal energy or computational mechanics; to develop and deliver curricula and courses in these fields; and to perform service roles in the Department of Engineering Science.

For enquiries about this role, please contact Professor Rosalind Archer at r.archer@auckland.ac.nz

Energy Department Opens Job Search for Geothermal Technologies Office Director Position

The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, U.S. Department of Energy, is seeking applications for the permanent position of Director to lead a national program in the development of innovative geothermal technologies that advance geothermal's role in the U.S. energy portfolio. The program includes enhanced geothermal systems, hydrothermal systems and exploration, low-temperature technologies, and analysis. With a technical portfolio of more than 150 projects, recent initiatives include play fairway mapping for geothermal systems and a novel field observatory for research into new mechanisms for rock stimulation and geothermal reservoir creation. The position also includes responsibility for a new and exciting Department of Energy initiative in subsurface science and engineering that crosscuts multiple sectors including oil and gas and environmental management, and which has an overall theme of adaptive control of subsurface fractures and fluid flow.

The Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) accelerates deployment of clean, domestic geothermal energy by supporting innovative technologies that reduce the cost and risks of development. This abundant resource generates energy around the clock and has the potential to supply more than 100 GWe of electricity – roughly one tenth of America's energy demand. By optimizing the value stream for electricity production and cascaded uses, the Office aims to make geothermal energy a fully cost-competitive, widely available, and geographically diverse component of the national energy mix. Learn more about GTO's portfolio on our website: geothermal.energy.gov.

The announcement is open through April 16, 2015. Please find complete details and the application process at: https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/399393200.
