Vacant positions

Postdoc fellow in tracer technology (2 years) 

The Department for Tracer Technology has an extensive cooperation with national and international oil companies. An area with particular focus is the development of tracer technology to describe the fluid dynamics in an oil reservoir. The department has been assigned (by the Norwegian Research Council) the project: Potential oil recovery derived from exploration wells (POREX), which is funded by the NRC-programme PETROMAKS2, Ground-breaking projects.
The Department for Tracer Technology invites candidates to apply for the position as the POREX Postdoc fellow.

The position will focus on the development and application of tracers to describe oil saturation measurements, and the aim is to develop a new tracer-based methodology enabling in-situ measurement of remaining oil saturation during the drilling and well completion. The fellow will participate in research projects and is expected to cooperate with other people in the group and external project partners. The anticipated results from POREX is that it will result in fundamentally new methodology for increased oil recovery (IOR) testing and thus contribute both to increased oil recovery on the Norwegian continental shelf as well as to a reduction in the cost of IOR implementation for new field developments.   

  • At accession, the candidate must have a PhD degree in petroleum technology, and have knowledge of tracer technology and analytical chemistry.
  • Experience in IOR/EOR and /or reservoir technology is an advantage. 
  • It is assumed that the candidate have good skills in English, written and oral.
Prefered profile:
  • The ability to work independently and systematically with high accuracy
  • To have a creative attitude and the ability to cooperate with others
  • Motivated and results-oriented
Application deadline:
11.august 2019
