There are circa 13,300 full-year undergraduate students, 1,500 postgraduate students and 3,900 employees.
The Drilling group at SCR is currently looking for candidates for a one year-post-doc research position. The purpose of the project is to develop mechanical numerical models to simulate the drilling process. Our objective is to understand the effect of particular drilling tools to the governing mechanisms of the drilling process, and to put this to practical use in devising new methods for designing, monitoring and controlling such processes. The challenge is to push the boundaries of drillable wells and allow better recovery of hydrocarbons.
The successful candidate will have a recent PhD in computational solid mechanics or mathematics applied to mechanics. Experience of finite element method, numerical methods in general and programming is an advantage. Good communication and writing in English are essential, although knowledge of Swedish is not necessary. The successful candidate may be required to spend several weeks at KTH in Sweden, at the start of the assignment.
We would like the successful candidate to start in early 2011
