Early Career Fellowships
Interested in a working with us?
Early Career Fellowships aim to provide career development opportunities for those who are at a relatively early stage of their academic careers, but who have a proven record of research. Fellowships develop the next generation of researchers with the greatest potential across the postdoctoral, early and established career stages. Petroleum Leeds are keen to support outstanding candidates in a number of externally funded research fellowship schemes listed below.
The University of Leeds is situated within the heart of a bustling city, surrounded by beautiful countryside. A thriving cultural city, Leeds has something to offer for everyone.
The University, established in 1904, is one of the largest higher education institutions in the UK. We are renowned globally for the quality of our teaching and research. The strength of our academic expertise combined with the breadth of disciplines we cover, provides a wealth of opportunities and has real impact on the world in cultural, economic and societal ways.
Within the Rock mechanics, engineering geology and hydrogeology group (RMEGH) we investigate the geomechanical, geotechnical and geoenvironmental behaviour of the ground (rock and soil) and groundwater, mainly focusing on the interaction between the ground and infrastructures and/or man-made projects. Our aim is to expand the boundaries of the current knowledge in specific areas of rock mechanics, engineering geology (and hydrogeology) and geotechnical areas.
We have specialist expertise in rock mechanics and tunnelling engineering as well in engineering geology, landslide mechanics, slope stability and weathering and hydrogeology of fractured rocks, hydrogeophysics and contaminant biodegradation.
