Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Geoscience at the University of Calgary. The project, funded for two years by the American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund, is aimed at understanding the processes governing silicification of carbonate rocks during diagenesis. The project will employ a combined experimental, analytical, and modeling approach to examine the role of dissolved organic molecules in mobilizing and transporting silica during carbonate diagenesis. Thermodynamic and reactive-diffusion modeling of these diagenetic reactions will also be an important focus.
