Vacant positions

PhD candidate in corrosion research 
We offer a PhD candidate position in the Corrosion Technology Department. The position is fully funded for 3 years and is part of a joint research project between IFE and the University of Stavanger. The PhD student will be affiliated to the University of Stavanger. The project is funded by the Research Council of Norway and oil and gas companies.
You will join a dynamic group focused on applied corrosion research in close cooperation with international oil companies. We are working to assure safe transport of oil, gas and CO2 in pipelines and strive for better models to predict corrosion rates.
You will work in a project to expand knowledge on corrosion occurring top-of-the-line in pipelines transporting unprocessed natural gas. Your contribution will involve carrying out lab experiments, setting the results in context with existing knowledge and developing models to predict corrosion rates. The results of the work are planned to be published in peer-reviewed international scientific journals and presented at international conferences in corrosion and materials science.
  • Master’s degree or MSc in chemistry, physics, materials science or closely related disciplines
  • Knowledge of corrosion or electrochemistry 
  • Experience with characterisation of materials is a plus
  • Experience with tools for modelling chemical and physical processes is a plus
Prefered profile:
We need a motivated person who has excellent problem-solving skills and who will be an active participant and collaborator in our group. You will have the chance to gain knowledge and skills that will support and extend the opportunities for us as a research group and for you as a developing scientist. We focus on delivering technology needed by our partners and by society.
