The Geothermal Science and Technology group at the Department of Materials and Geosciences, Technische Universität Darmstadt, invites applications for the position of a
starting from the 1st of September 2021 or earlier. The position is funded within a research project for a period of two years. An extension of 2 years might be possible by an already planned follow-up project.
The main focus is the preparation of an "Atlas of Mineralogical and Petrophysical Properties of German Crystalline Host Rocks" on behalf of the Bundesgesellschaft für Endlagerung mbH (BGE). The working area is the distribution area of potential crystalline host rocks in southern to southeastern Germany.
Based on literature, geological maps and field work, you will:
All this work is done in close cooperation with the BGE and in coordination with the State Geological Services (SGD) of the respective federal states. We expect you to work in close cooperation and in intensive technical exchange with the BGE and the SGD both in the organization and coordination of the field work, as well as in laboratory work.
The results of your work should contribute a significant increase in knowledge about the mineralogical and petrophysical properties of crystalline rocks in southern Germany. We are therefore looking for highly motivated collaborators with a strong interest in the previously mentioned topics.
We offer a professional research environment as well as support in the presentation and publication of research results at national and international conferences and in specialist journals. Additionally, there will be many opportunities to work with international collaboration partners from academia and industry through our joint research projects. Modern computer and laboratory equipment is available.
Opportunity for further qualification (doctoral dissertation) is given. The fulfillment of the duties likewise enables the scientific qualifications of the candidate.
The Technische Universität Darmstadt intends to increase the number of female employees and encourages female candidates to apply. In case of equal qualifications applicants with a degree of disability of at least 50 or equal will be given preference. Wages and salaries are according to the collective agreements on salary scales, which apply to the Technische Universität Darmstadt (TV-TU Darmstadt).
Please send your application including a letter of motivation, a CV and relevant certificates (all in one single pdf file) to Mrs. Simone Roß-Krichbaum, Sekretariat Angewandte Geothermie (firstname.lastname@example.org) referring to AMPEDEK and the given Code-No.
Please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Kristian Bär (email@example.com, +49 6151 16 22295) if you have any further questions.
