Join Us!



We are a collaborative, ambitious, and multi-disciplinary research team working on challenging and exciting problems at the forefront of petroleum engineering science and technology. We highly value creativity, attention to detail, safety, and ethical conduct in our research. The physical word inspires and motivates us and we welcome any one who shares our enthusiasm.

Our group accepts students and postdocs from many disciplines, including Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, and all fields of Engineering. Having previous petroleum engineering background is not required to join our research group. We will teach you all you want and need to know about petroleum engineering after you join us. Outstanding candidates are encouraged to contact Dr. Nasrabadi directly. Please send your CV along with a brief description of your previous research experience and/or future interests. We post specific funded openings on our news page.

The Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering at Texas A&M University is ranked as the top undergraduate program among departments with a Ph.D. program and the graduate program is currently ranked second in the United States (tied with Stanford University) according to U.S. News & World Report.
