Rock Physics Opportunity


The Department of Geophysics at Colorado School of Mines is continuously seeking exemplary scientists to add to our faculty. At present we are particularly interested in individuals with expertise in the area of petroleum geophysics. Our faculty is collaborative and future hires are expected are expected to interact with multiple researchers in the department and across the Mines campus including the Reservoir Characterization Project (RCP).  RCP is a 30-year-old, well established industry consortium that is sponsored by oil and gas operators and service companies and is dedicated to the study of integrated reservoir characterization. The unique model emphasizes a multidisciplinary, collaborative team approach for practical research and preparation of graduate students. For details on the consortium please see Mines seeks highly qualified individuals who will contribute to the excellence of our academic community through their research, teaching, service, and dedication to diversity in the geosciences.

15th Rock Physics Influencer

Paul Hatchell

I joined Shell in 1989 after receiving a PhD in theoretical physics from the University of Wisconsin. I started my career at Shell’s Technology Center in Houston and worked on a variety of research topics including shear-wave logging, quantitative seismic amplitude analysis, and 3D AVO applications. This work was carried out on the first large oil fields Shell was developing in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico at the time.  Read more
