Project researcher (m/f/x) for the LEILAC2 project
The Geological Survey of Belgium (GSB) - GeoEnergy team has built unique expertise in the techno-economic analysis of geo-energy applications and the integration of uncertainty. The RBINS-GSB is partner in the EU-funded LEILAC2 project on CO2 capture from cement industry, and its subsequent transport and geological storage. This project will develop and install a demo-scale CO2 capture plant at the site of one of the world’s largest cement companies. An integrated geo-techno-economic analysis of the project and its possible future expansion is necessary to judge the practical feasibility and justify the investments.
You hold a Master’s degree in Earth Sciences.
- You have an interest in the climate change issue, geo-energy applications and CO2 storage in particular.
- You are acquainted with the geology of Belgium.
- You have experience with economic analyses.
- You can work independent, according to scientific principles, and are able to produce and present high-quality results.
- You can report and communicate at a scientific level, both within the project (reports, meetings) and scientific channels (publications, conferences).

- You have advanced knowledge of MS Office applications, especially Excel and Access, and are able to use Visual Basic for Applications.
- You are no stranger to a GIS (Geographic Information System) environment.
- The LEILAC2 project is a European international project. Good knowledge of English is therefore mandatory.
- A PhD in Earth Sciences.
- Experience with techno-economic simulations, real options analysis, uncertainty analysis etc.
- Experience in CO2 capture, transport and storage projects.
- The working environment in Brussels is bilingual Dutch and French. Knowledge of either is a plus.
The application procedure will close on 29 November 2020 !!
