Graduate student/postdoctoral position - Fluid flow in deformable porous media.

Description

Fluid flow in dynamically-changing porous media occur in a variety of natural and industrial processes, including transport of water, gases and contaminants in the subsurface, CO2 geosequestration and energy recovery. In my group we study the interplay between flow of one or more fluid phases and solid matrix deformation, focusing on mechanisms that are governed by pore-scale heterogeneity—such as fluid-fluid displacement, fingering, fracturing, and solid-fluid chemical reactions—and their collective effect on the hydraulic and mechanical medium properties.

To gain fundamental understanding of the underlying physics and expose the mechanisms and parameters that govern these phenomena, the applicant will take part in the design and execution of computer simulations and experiments. The candidate should be a talented, highly motivated person with background in geosciences, physics, or engineering. Computational skills are desirable.
