Maggiori informazioni sui contenuti del corso e sulle modalità di iscrizione in questo flyer.
Introduction of The Lab/ Research Field: Dr. Lei’s research on porous media features temperature, pressure and stress control, pore-scale insights based on micro-CT technique integrated with conventional testing, multi-physics experiments and theoretical analysis. Targeted areas include: (1) particulate material and porous media under abnormal conditions and their interaction with pore constituents; (2) energy, marine, and resource geo-engineering; (3) permafrost and outer space sediments; (4) natural gas hydrates and their hosting sediments; (5) massive energy storage; and (6) multi-phase flow and crystallization in porous media.
Job Description: Position: Postdoctoral fellow; Requirements: 1) To work on mechanical and hydrological properties of soil under various conditions, experimentalist preferred; 2) Have obtained or expect to obtain shortly the PhD degree in water resources, geotechnical engineering, earth science, geophysics, or related disciplines; 3) Age under 35; 4) Geo-mechanical and/or hydrological experiences preferred; 5) Good track academic record.
Compensation and Benefits: The research team offers a competitive compensation package commensurate with the selected candidate’s qualifications and experience. Applications for relevant projects and programs will be encouraged and supported.
How to Apply: To apply, please send resume, representative papers and any other relevant materials as PDF files to firstname.lastname@example.org, and indicate the Post-doc application in the subject.
About the position: vacancy for a 3-year R&D project within computational geomechanics at BAW Bundesanstalt für Wasserbau Federal Waterways Engineering and Research Institute Department of Geotechnical Engineering in Karlsruhe, Germany. The R&D-position’s main objective is to improve open source geomechanical analysis tools and to qualify the candidate for research positions.
Duties of the position: The R&D project aims at the validation and further development of poroMechanicalFoam, an openFOAM based FVM-model for hydro-mechanical analysis of flow-structure-soil interactions considering variable soil saturation. Based on analytical solutions and experimental data the impact of spatial and temporal discretization on robustness and accuracy shall be determined. The model performance shall be tested based on case studies from the geotechnical engineering practice at BAW considering representative aspects among others anisotropy of the mechanic and/or hydraulic properties, advanced soil material models (bounding surface plasticity), variable saturation and gas entrapment below the phreatic surface. In the final stage predictable failure mechanisms are to be addressed within the framework of the second order work concept. If desired, there is possibility for laboratory tests for characterization of soil properties and or/ identification of aspects yet not properly captured in poroMechanicalFoam.
Required selection criteria: The qualification requirement is a completed a master’s degree or second degree (equivalent to 120 credits) with a strong academic background in engineering/physics or closely related discipline.

Postdoc position at Institute of Radiation protection and nuclear safety (Fontenay Aux Roses, France)
Applications are welcomed for a 18 months postdoc position in IRSN (Institute of Radiation protection and nuclear safety, Fontenay Aux Roses – France + several stays in Barcelona – Spain) to investigate gas migration in natural and swelling clays. Further information on this position can be found in the attached document.
The work proposed in this post-doctoral fellowship is divided into two parts and consists mainly in working on the characterization of the microstructure of clay materials and their relationship to gas migration. The first part is on the impact of gas migration of the HM behavior of bentonite pellet-powder mixtures. The second part proposed concerns the image analysis tools of microtomography to improve the segmentation of low contrast grey level areas and the morphological descriptors construction to be able to generate equivalent synthetic structures.
Applications are invited for a post-doctoral researcher in computational modelling of gas-induced fractures in low-permeability porous media. The post-doctoral researcher will push the boundaries of existing understanding of coupling between gas flow in low permeability porous media and fracturing process, through the development of theoretical models and numerical tools. It is anticipated that the researcher will need to develop models which include discrete pathways in a heterogeneous (continuum) material. Challenges exist in simulating the development of the discrete pathways and the impact of the heterogeneity on the macroscopic behaviour. The simulation tools developed will be based on existing finite element tools for multiphase flow and mechanics, which require novel additions to include discrete pathways. Close collaboration with experimentalists is expected.
The closing date for applications is 11th October 2019.
