Brief Description
• To provide high quality research support and undertake internationally competitive research aimed at publication thereby contributing to the academic and research mission of the University.
• Since the Postdoctoral experience is transitional to becoming an independent researcher or faculty member, the Postdoctoral tries their best to acquire the varied skills necessary to advance their career with guidance from the advisor. These skills include, but are not limited to, the ability to present research plans and findings in a convincing style, both in oral and written modes of communication, the ability to understand research group management and supervision of others, the ability to establish contacts and network with colleagues pursuing a similar research agenda, the ability to organize and teach a class or a course if more inclined towards a teaching career.
Detailed Description
Strategic Responsibilities
• Develop numerical methods for 2.5D/3D frequency-domain seismic wave-field in anisotropic, viscoelastic media.
• Develop computer software of the frequency-domain seismic full-waveform inversion (FDS-FWI) to image geological structure of 2D/3D carbonate reservoirs.
• Supervise post-graduate students.
Operational Responsibilities
• Optimize and calibrate the following computer programs:
• 2D/3D frequency-domain seismic wave modelling in anisotropic viscoelastic media.
• Computation of the Jacobian matrix for anisotropic and attenuation parameters.
• Sensitivity analysis of the full-waveform spectral data to anisotropic and attenuation parameters of media.
• Nonlinear inversion algorithm of multi-parameter with geological structure constraints.
• Conduct synthetic and practical experiments of FDS-FWI.
• Prepare oral presentation or posters for international conference/workshop, and manuscripts for publications in journals.
Supervisory Responsibilities
• Supervise post-graduate students to conduct synthetic and practical experiments of FDS-FWI.
