Post-doctoral Fellow at Mines(G)

Job Description:

We are seeking a post-doctoral fellow or research assistant professor to assist in the development and implementation of a sensing strategy to (a) guide very near surface (< 30 m deep) horizontal directional drilling (HDD) while drilling at 0.1 m/s in potentially noisy magnetic environments and without stopping; and (b) sense obstacles ahead of the bit for collision avoidance. Data gathered to support these activities will also be used in intelligent drilling support to optimize drilling. The project involves determining the accuracy of current magnetic and seismic MWD/LWD tools for sensing and navigation while drilling, and advancing methods to interpret these data during drilling operations. The project also involves harnessing the knowledge gained from the aforementioned imaging via machine learning to improve drilling efficacy and speed. Considerable laboratory and field work is required for this project. This project is part of a larger effort with a highly interdisciplinary team of faculty, post-docs, and students at Colorado School of Mines (Mines) working with industry tunneling and drilling partners.

This position will begin as early now. The current project end date is 30 December 2020, but an extension of this position is possible based on project needs and employee availability/interest.

Sales/Marketing Internship

This a bit different than your typical internship. I am looking for folks who are interested in the sales/marketing/service realm of the mining, civil, and industrial business. Minetek is a small, family owned, global business that is looking to increase its footprint in this hemisphere. This will be the ground floor of the creation of a business based in Denver, that will cover the North and South American markets. The intern/interns will likely be the second employees in this market, with a number of full-time sales, support, and technical roles to follow in the next two years. This could be a potential stepping stone for one of those roles.

The focus products will be a revolutionary fan for underground ventilation, and an evaporator system for surplus water removal for ponds in all industries, primarily mining, mine reclamation, coal fired power, and oil and gas. These industries create a potential pool of up 30,000 contact points in North America alone.

I am looking for outgoing, creative people who can navigate the digital world and a telephone to help identify and sort this daunting number of potential targets and remove the unsuitable clients. The Intern will then build the required data on the remaining potentials, locate the decision makers, and make initial contacts to build interest and generate sales leads.

The position will be based in an office in Cherry Creek temporarily until a permanent location is located, preferably in the West Metro Denver area. I am posting for a summer internship, but will also consider flexible-hour part-time work until the school year ends.

This will require a self starter who can work with limited supervision, and think outside the proverbial box to identify suitable applications and potential customers. The Intern must be willing to communicate with email, applications such as linkedin, AND on the phone with potential customers.

 

This job is on Diggernet with job ID: 63283

 

 

Energy Reporter for Oil & Gas 360

DAILY OIL & GAS JOURNALISM – We need an intern-energy reporter for Oil & Gas 360 (www.oilandgas360.com ). You should be someone who likes to write, who pays attention to detail and knows how to put a 600-800 word story together reporting newsworthy items from the daily oil and gas industry newsflow.  Basic technical knowledge is a plus for stories about drilling and well completions, but Oil & Gas 360 is first and foremost an online financial publication covering the business aspects of the oil and gas industry, company news, global demand and supply trends, U.S. petroleum and LNG exports, converting EIA data releases and Dallas Federal Reserve data into readable stories.  You will set up interviews and call and interview CEOs and other experts. We do reference well results and new frac technologies, trends in proppant intensity and other aspects of E&P on occasion as part of our coverage of the shale industry, but we don’t write actual technical articles, because we are not a technical publication.

 

About half of our audience are financial people from the institutional investing portion of Wall Street – fund managers, private equity, energy bankers, investment bankers, family offices, hedge funds, retirement funds and financial analysts who work at those financial institutions.  The other half hold 90% E&P management teams—Chairman and CEO, CFO, COO, SVP Drilling Western Hemisphere or Eastern Hemisphere, board of directors, landmen–and all the way to drilling mud supervisors and warehouse managers for oilfield service operations. The balance are executives at midstream companies, government agencies, foreign national oil companies, global industry analysts, private energy investors, and others.

 

DAILY PUBLISHING DEADLINE: We write for this audience daily and send the stories we write to about 30,000 subscribers at 4:00 p.m. daily. So the ability to dive into two or three industry news topics and cover them for the daily readers is paramount. Proper use of grammar and spelling, attention to detail and 100% accuracy are the must-have tools. Additionally some stories like M & A and A & D stories need analysis of financial and operational metrics for publicly traded oil and gas companies, using primarily Excel with data pulled from the Bloomberg machine. We will show him or her how to capture the data using Bloomberg, assuming they have already majored in Excel from Mines J !

 

The job will begin on an internship basis (paid) – hoping for a candidate who can start now, and is available to work with us at 410 17th St. Suite 250, Denver 80202 – at least two 5-hour days a week.  The goal is to move the intern to full time energy reporter once his or her skills and work ethic are proven.

 

Interested parties should email Bevo Beaven(bbeaven@enercominc.com) a one page cover letter saying why they fit the position, a resume, and a one page writing sample.
