3 postdoctoral fellowships and 1 PhD position (research fellow) available in the MultiRifts Project

Department of Earth Science, University of Bergen, Norway

The MultiRifts Project is a new three-year collaborative research effort by the Universities of Bergen, Oslo, Manchester and Imperial College London and is funded by the Research Council of Norway through the Petromaks programme and Statoil ASA. The project will investigate the structural, topographic and sedimentary development of rift basins and normal fault zones where pre-existing structure heterogeneity within the basement and/or cover affect rift and normal growth. The project will be organized in three themes:

Theme 1: Analysis of subsurface data from the North Sea rift system.
Theme 2: Numerical modelling of pre-existing structural control on rift and normal fault evolution.
Theme 3: Numerical modelling of fault growth and surface processes.

We are seeking highly motivated candidates with proven research potential for the following positions:

1. Research fellow (PhD candidate) in Theme 1. Structural geology of multiphase rift basins (based on subsurface data analysis)

Theme Leaders: Professor Haakon Fossen, Associate Professor Atle Rotevatn and Professor Rob Gawthorpe
