Post-doc DEM modelling (INRAE, Aix-Marseille Univ, RECOVER, France)

A 18 months post-doc position opens for 2021-2022 at the RECOVER research unit (INRAE, Aix-Marseille Univ, Aix-en-Provence, France).

The project will focus on particle’s shape mechanical influence in granular materials, through discrete modelling with realistic shape descriptors.

Application has to be done at the earliest convenience and by email.

Please find all details at https://stratus.irstea.fr/f/5ef9fde069f24c35ba66/?dl=1

PostDoc position in Computational Geomechanics and Multiscale Modelling at UFZ (Germany)

The Department of Environmental Informatics at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ), whose main base is in Leipzig (Germany), is seeking at the earliest possible date a PostDoc in Computational Geomechanics and Multiscale Modelling.

Energy and environmental aspects of geoscience remain the greatest challenges that our society will face in the coming decades. To provide a numerical tool for environmental protection (e.g. sub-surface integrity) and energy transition (e.g. underground energy storage), Department of Environmental Informatics develops an open-source Finite Element platform, OpenGeoSys in C++. The tool enables us to simulate multi-physical processes in sub-surface such as fluid and heat transport, or rock deformation and failure. For simulation of discontinuous deformation or crack propagation in rock, a variational phase-field (VPF) model has been adapted and implemented in OpenGeoSys (OGS-6). Within the GeomInt2 project (www.ufz.de/geomint) the VPF method shall be further developed and applied to various applications such as field experiments in the Underground Research Laboratories and Mines in Mont Terri (Opalinus clay) and Springen (salt rock), respectively.

Closing date for applications: 22.11.2020

Place of work: Leipzig – More information here.

Post-Doc position at Ecole Centrale de Nantes (France)

Hydro-mechanical instabilities in low permeability geomaterials

The topic deals with the experimental identification of quantitative interactions between the micro-structure of low permeability geomaterials, the heterogeneous fluid flow through them and their deformation. In particular coupled hydro-mechanical instabilities, say couplings between fluid fingering and strain localization, will be quantitatively investigated. The study is developed within the framework of the ANR project called «STOWENG» underground STOrage of reneWable ENergies in low permeability Geomaterials.

Starting date: 2021-01-01
