School/Section Engineering Staff Category Research Position Type Full Time Grade Grade 6 Salary From ?33,199 Closing Date 04/02/2019 Ref No ENG123R Documents Further Particulars and Person Specification.pdf (PDF , 681.71kb) The successful candidate will specifically work on formulating a new drilling fluid, designing and fabricating a physical model that can handle simultaneous heat transfer process and fluid flow in drill strings and annulus during a hole cleaning process. The setup is then used to conduct rheological and flow tests in a closed loop system. Also, the successful appointee needs to develop a simulation model by using commercial simulators, to generate an optimisation algorithm that can predict the efficiency of the new drilling fluid in hole cleaning processes. Furthermore, economical analysis and CO2 emissions will be investigated to understand the environmental impact of the fluid in a drilling process. Applicant should have a PhD in petroleum engineering or closely related areas (chemical/civil engineering, earth sciences) with a proven experience and track record on experimental projects relevant to the advertised position. Salary will be paid at the rate of £33,199 per annum on the Grade 6salary scale. Consideration will be given to making an appointment at Research Assistant level for individuals in the final stages of completing their PhD, Grade 5 (£31,302 per annum).
