Please note that the job is no longer active!

PhD/postdoctoral position - Flow in transforming porous media.

Description

The flow of one or more fluid phases into a sediment or soil can occur in a variety of rates and patterns, which strongly depend on the pore space geometry and the physical properties of the solid and fluids. Fluid flow may also be affected by mechanical and/or chemical deformation of the pore space, which can be induced by changes in fluid pressures and/or composition, for example opening of preferential flow paths by fracturing or dissolution of the solid matrix. Fundamental understanding of the underlying physics is not only a fascinating science problem but also is essential to the development of new technologies for enhanced energy recovery, subsurface storage of CO2 and contaminant transport.
We seek a talented, highly motivated person with background in geosciences, physics or engineering (Computational skills desirable), to develop quantitative, mechanistic models, which will be used in numerical simulations and tested against controlled experiments.
