PDRA post - University of Edinburgh

PDRA Hydrogen storage in subsurface porous rocks, School of Geosciences, College of Science and Engineering

Grade UE07 (£33,797-£40,322 per annum)

Full time (35 hours per week)

Fixed term from 1 October 2021 for 18 months

We are looking for an ambitious and motivated Post-Doctoral Research Associate to undertake experimental and numerical modelling investigations into the fundamental processes associated with the geological storage of hydrogen. You will be part of the EU H2020 funded HyUsPRe (Hydrogen Underground Storage in Porous Reservoirs) project.

This position will investigate the fundamental processes of the geological storage of hydrogen and includes: (i) Experimental characterisation and pore-scale modelling of the mass transfer properties of hydrogen including relative permeability curves and X-Ray micro-CT imaging of the hydrogen-brine system through porous rock (and cushion gasses) during multiple injection and withdrawal cycles and (ii) experimental investigations to assess caprock integrity to hydrogen.

PhD opportunity - University of Strathclyde

Title: Development of novel grouting technology for subsurface engineering & the net-zero carbon revolution

This lab-based project - based at the University of Strathclyde's Dept of Civil and Environmental Engineering - will focus on developing novel delivery mechanisms for injecting low viscosity grouts into the subsurface so as to reliably improve the engineering properties and pave the way for the net-zero carbon revolution. Funding is for 3 years - UKRI level stipend + Home Fees (for UK students only). Supervisory team: Dr James Minto & Dr Matteo Pedrotti.

Closing date: 13 August 2021

Project start date: Flexible, ideally October 2021
