The University seeks to employ PhD and Post-Doctoral student to work on the project

 

On April 6-7, The STEMM-CCS partners held their inaugural meeting at the Shell building on the South Bank to mark the official project kick-off. The two-day meeting attracted 46 delegates with representatives from all of the project partners, plus, for the first day, The Project Officer from the European Commission, attending. Shell very kindly hosted the meeting and provided meeting rooms with stunning views over the Thames and the iconic London skyline beyond.

Delegates spent the two days plotting the course of the project over the next 4 years . The project is broken into work packages and each of the package leaders presented an overview of their tasks and identified the tight interlinking of the tasks between different work packages and the project as a whole. The University leads or jointly leads on two work packages; one involved in the detection, localisation and quantification of CO2 in the water column and the other a work package around the identification of sediment features such as fractures and seismic chimneys that may act as pathways for escaping gas and fluids.

The University is further involved in the development of seabed lander systems with acoustic and chemical sensors and in the international network and pubic dissemination of the project.

Currently, The University seeks to employ PhD and Post-Doctoral students to work on the project, in areas such as the development of acoustic techniques, the seismic interpretation of overburden features and geochemical modelling of sedimentary processes.
