(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellow in Geomechanics – IV-80/24

The postdoctoral fellowship position is a temporary position where the main goal is to qualify for work in senior academic positions.

Safe subsurface CO2 storage requires no leakage from the reservoir to the top surface (seafloor or on land) over an indefinitely long time. The required containment has implications for characterization and operation of the storage site, and not least, for the surrounding rock. This is an area where geomechanical evaluation together with seismic characterization and monitoring is crucial for a successful CCS project.

The postdoctoral project is focused towards geomechanical processes associated with injection operations where pore pressure, stresses and temperature change within the storage reservoir as well as in the surroundings. The work will be based on experiments performed in SINTEF’s Formation Physics laboratory, supported by data available from open literature. The work will be performed in collaboration with the PhD on numerical modelling, supervised by Prof. Alexandre Lavrov. The main objective of the work described here will be to contribute to a toolbox for assessing the influence of injection-induced stress, pore pressure and temperature changes on cap rock integrity and within the storage reservoir. Emphasis will be on identification of crucial parameters for assessment of geomechanical and rock physics contributions to 4D seismic monitoring and forecasting of leakages.

Deadline : 30th July 2024

(04) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc position in Well Plugging and Abandonment – IV-83/24

The postdoctoral fellowship position is a temporary position where the main goal is to qualify for work in senior academic positions.

We have a vacancy for a Postdoc candidate at the Dept. of Geoscience and Petroleum (IGP) in Well Plugging and Abandonment (P&A) Technology and within the framework of the ongoing industry sponsored research program SFI – Center for Subsurface Well Integrity, Plugging and Abandonment (SWIPA)

Cement is the traditional material used in the well construction phase and in the well plugging and abandonment phase to seal off any leak paths between the reservoir and surroundings. Improved sealing performance using cement includes, among other things, the use of additives to make the cement more flexible and reduce crimping when the cement sets.  In some types of clay formations, the bore hole diameter will shrink  and make a tight seal against the casing in the well bore. Bismuth can be an alternative material for improved sealing of wellbores. The metallic material, which has a typical melting point between 150 – 300 0C depending on material composition, is typically expanding 0,5 – 3% when it sets. For some applications, this material can be applied to avoid or reduce leaks and thus improve the integrity of the well.

Deadline : 15th June 2024

(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Researcher in Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience

There are a number of cyber test ranges available (including in Europe) but the federated approach and advanced cyber physical test range capability are two elements of the FACT project which makes it disruptive and unique. The focus on Operational Technology (OT) is increasing when it comes to military systems, and the cyber physical aspect is thus of greatest importance for the FACT project. Military platforms are not easily transferable to a relevant location for test. However, the federated approach in the FACT project will allow the physical part to be implemented at more than one location, and still make use of the full capability of the partners capabilities during the testing. To ensure that the equipment is used and has a required level of protection, the FACT project will design, prototype and demonstrate a federated cyber physical test capability which can be maintained and become a sustained capability to the European nations after the project. Our approach is fully user-centric, with the end-user’s needs as the starting point for the whole capability and every consideration. Examples of test scenario setups where the federated aspect of FACT is an advantage are numerous: larger partners wanting to cooperate in larger system deliveries, smaller companies cooperating with several partners within their complimentary field of expertise, sharing vulnerabilities and mitigating actions on equipment across partners and nations for shortening time to market.

The position creates an opportunity for more collaboration with other research disciplines such as security management, safety engineering, and policymaking in addition to the focus areas mentioned above.

Deadline : 14th June 2024

(07) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Researcher in Robust AI

The position is connected to the project “RICO – Robust Intelligent Control”, funded by the Norwegian Research Council and in collaboration between NTNU, SINTEF, ANEO A/S, SolutionSeeker A/S and Aneo Mobility . The ambition of RICO is to develop new methods for improved robustness of intelligent control systems and predictive models. The successful candidate will be working with particular emphasis on robustness in predictive systems. There is a gap between the research on very advanced methods tested in a controllable and predictable environment and the industrial setting where the environment is neither completely known nor controllable and where information can be scarce, uncertain and of low quality.  This gap can be closed by developing novel methods for robust intelligent control and forecasting to be tested in both controlled environments and in industrial systems, and this is exactly the aim of RICO.
