Idaho Geological Survey - Geoscience Manager - Digital Mapping Laboratory
The Idaho Geological Survey (IGS) has a full-time, permanent opening for a Geoscience Manager to oversee and manage the Digital Mapping Laboratory located on the Moscow campus of the University of Idaho. The Geoscience Manager will manage and maintain production, publication, and delivery of geologic and other IGS maps, products, and data. The successful candidate will supervise and train Geologists, GIS Analysts, Digital Cartographers, and others working on Survey projects within the Digital Mapping Laboratory. The incumbent will also be responsible for the oversight of Information Technology contractors, maintaining and updating GIS software, developing and maintaining lab budgets for equipment and service contracts, identifying equipment and software needs, and providing input to the Director for long-term planning and best management practices to ensure smooth operation of the Lab. Co-management of the IGS website and Windows network domain are additional responsibilities of the position. A strong understanding of geologic mapping principals are important skills for the incumbent to successfully collaborate with geologic staff on research projects.

An attractive benefits package and moving allowance is available to the successful candidate; an annual salary up to $70,000 is provided, commensurate with experience.

JOB TITLE: Computational Geoscientist (340868)
COMPANY: Aramco Services Company

Houston Research Center of Aramco Services Company is looking for a highly skilled computational geoscientist with seven to nine years of industry experience. The successful candidate will pursue research and maintain awareness of novel developments in numerical simulations related to constructing accurate geologic subsurface models to understand the geological structure, rock characteristics and the likely distribution of oil/gas/mineral-bearing strata. He or she will develop in-house numerical models from scratch using programming languages suited for scientific computing (C++/Python), as well as utilize existing scientific packages (e.g. Comsol) to build model prototypes. The research topics may include but are not limited to unconventional resources, hydrocarbon systems evaluation, source-rock analysis, reservoir quality, environments of deposition and reactive transport modeling.
We are looking for candidates that have extensive experience in writing custom software for numerical simulations using C++, Fortran or Python; have thorough knowledge of general techniques for solving partial differential equations. They must be well versed in the modeling applications for the oil and gas industry and be current in established industry practices and the views of industry/academic thought leaders in the field. Supplementary skills in the area of statistics and uncertainty analysis are desired; knowledge of methods for statistical inference from data is beneficial. Track record of publications in peer-reviewed journals strongly preferred. Finally, the candidate must possess good work habits, a strong work ethic, and be able to adhere to company work hours, policies, and standard business etiquette.

Company Name: Aramco Services Company
Job Title: Geological Consultant (Senior Geochemist)

Our Houston Research Center focuses on research and innovation in geology, geophysics, reservoir engineering, production technology, drilling, and sensors development to advance the discovery and recovery of oil and gas. Located in Houston’s Energy Corridor, the center neighbors the nation’s leading petroleum engineering universities, labs, manufacturers, and service companies.

The Aramco Research Center in Houston seeks a Senior Quantitative Geochemist to develop a research program in applied organic and inorganic geochemistry research with a strong emphasis on computational modeling linked to laboratory analyses and experimentation. The candidate will bring broad industry knowledge of organic and inorganic geochemistry applications ranging from nano- to basin scale, providing technical leadership for integrated research including diagenesis, hydrocarbon systems evaluation and source-rock analysis. The candidate will be expected to work with laboratory with support staff in the use of analytical equipment for organic geochemistry research and to collaborate with other researchers in the Aramco Global Research Centers. Geochemistry modeling research will benefit from a keen awareness of advanced analytical and experimental methods and connections to novel technology developments. The position offers an outstanding opportunity to establish and grow a geochemistry research program in a well-integrated, multi-disciplinary research environment. Applicants should apply online at:
