We seek a candidate with strong expertise in sensors/robotics/data applied to geoenergy
needs (oil& gas, geothermal, CO2 sequestration). The candidate will focus on one
or more of the following areas:
smart sensing and monitoring, optimization drilling and reservoir operations, Big data
analysis, new concepts for production monitoring and reservoir management, Downhole
smart sensor technology and robotics, advanced logging and sensing under extreme
conditions (high P&T, fluid chemistry, extended life).
The Energy Resources and Petroleum Engineering Academic Program for both M.S. and Ph.D. students focuses on modern reservoir description, engineering and management. Students in this program receive broad training in basic scientific concepts and thermodynamics, geology, geophysical characterization, and reservoir engineering. Our students participate in scientific research activities that may include mathematical analyses, computational modeling, experimental research and/or field studies. Ph.D. candidates focus on original research driven to advance the boundaries of knowledge.
