SWPU was founded in 1958. As the result of constant construction and development for more than 40 years, SWPU has become a high level engineering-based university which is characterized by petroleum, natural gas and other supporting disciplines (science, management , economics, literature and law). It is the important base of our country for the training of competent personnel and scientific research in oil and gas industry. It has one academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, two post-doctoral research centers, thirteen doctor’s degree programs, forty-nine Master’s degree programs, two national level key disciplines and one national level key laboratory, five provincial and ministerial level key disciplines and fourteen provincial and ministerial level key laboratories (research center), including CWCT (Center for Well Completion Techniques) built with the support of the U.N.and Sino-Canadian Natural Gas Training Center for Exploration and Exploitation and built with the support of the Canadian Government.
The Disciplines and the Main Areas in the Post-doctoral Research Center
1. Oil and Gas Engineering: It has eight subdevided disciplines. The main research directions are Oil and Gas Well Engineering Mechanics, Oil and Gas Well Hydrokinetics, Oil and Gas Well Working Fluid Chemistry, Oil and Gas Well Engineering Survey and Processing Control, Logging Method and Numberical Processing, Well Completion Engineering and Storage Protection, Oil and Gas Percolation Theory and Application Technology, Oil and Gas Field Exploration Theory and Method, Oil and Gas Production Engineering Theory and Method, Enhancing Recovery Theory and Techniques, Oil and Gas Production Chemistry Engineering and Theory, Exploration Geology and Oil Reservoir Description, Oil and Gas Pipe Line System Simulation , Complex Phase Flows Theory and Technique, Oil and Gas Storage and Transportation Techniques and Theory, Oil and Gas Storage Reliability Analysis and Life Prediction, Petroleum Engineering Computing Techniques, Oil and Gas Field Material and Application, Petroleum Engineering Well Logging and Engineering Application, Petroleum Mineral Deposit Machinerary, and Oil and Gas Exploration Geology and so on. It was awarded an honorary title, “One of the National Best Post-Doctor Research Center” by the Ministry of Personnel and the management committee.
2.Geological Resource and Geological Engineering: It has three subdevided disciplines. The main research directions are: Basin Analysis and Resource Evaluation, Oil and Gas Reservoir Geological Theory and Techniques, Natural Gas Pool Formation Geochemistry, Carbonate Rock Sedimentary Reservoir Bed Geology and Applied Geophysics Theory and Method,etc..
Post-doctor’s Treatment and Management
1. The center provideds postdoctors with excellent condiction for scientific research and living. When they work in the post-doctoral research center, they can enjoy not only the salary as the on-duty staff do according to the state regulation but also allowance of 10,000 RMB per person if they are evaluated to be qualified .
2. The applicants can contact the post-doctoral research center or directly contact the co-operative tutor. The center accepts postdoctor applicantion all the year round.
The university takes the post-doctoral recruitment as the main task of attracting and cultivating top academic leaders and promoting discipline development, takes it into the consideration and planning of the whole school and establishes a set of perfect and well proven rules and regulations. The post-doctoral research center of SWPU is awarded as the Sichuan Provincial Advanced Post-Doctoral Unit. Now there are 32 postdoctors totally in SWPU. It plans to recruit 15 postdoctors in 2006. SWPU is located in Chengdu and it has beautiful enviroment and convenient traffic. Welcome to SWPU!
