Full Job Description
Centre for Natural Gas

Queensland has a strong resource-based economy and is a hub for national and international companies exploring for and extracting coal seam gas (CSG) and other unconventional energy sources. The CSG industry in Queensland is an important and significant development in the Australian natural resources sector, with 6 LNG trains running that will export some 1500 petajoules of energy per year from the Bowen and Surat Basins.

The Centre for Natural Gas (CNG) was established in December 2011 by UQ in conjunction with major Queensland coal seam gas (CSG) companies. It conducts and supports research and education relevant to the onshore gas sector. Led by the Centre Director, the Centre is managed by a core team of professorial research chairs who oversees its research portfolio, covering the areas of geoscience, petroleum engineering, groundwater and social performance. The Centre also provides independent advice on policy or business-relevant matters, leadership on scientific and technical issues as well as strategic planning.

The Centre draws on the extensive research and educational capabilities across UQ’s schools and institutes and collaborates with industry and research organisations, nationally and internationally. The Centre provides a coordinated access point to disciplines such as economics, business, petroleum engineering, geosciences, water, ecology, sustainability and social sciences.

The Centre recognises and values equity and diversity, and encourages applications from any individual who meets the requirements of this position irrespective of gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, age or other protected attributes. The Centre strives to provide an inclusive working environment, and along with the University is committed to supporting staff with family and caring responsibilities by providing policies, programs and initiatives to help balance work and family responsibilities.

The successful candidate will have a demonstrated application of geochronology (sampling, methods) and its uses for sedimentology and stratigraphy. Experience in integrating age dating methods into a stratigraphic framework and wireline log interpretation will also be beneficial.

While not essential experience Teaching/tutoring experience and a knowledge of the Surat Basin geology in Queensland will be highly regarded.

You must have unrestricted work rights in Australia for the duration of this appointment to apply. Visa sponsorship is not available for this appointment.
