HE-MSCA PhD Position in Simulation for Geosciences

This project is framed within the MSCA EarthSafe Doctoral Network.

 We need candidates with a strong background in Numerical Methods and Continuum Mechanics.

Thermo-chemical-mechanical interactions of fluid phases and solid rocks control magmatic and hydrothermal processes of tectonic, biological and economic significance. However, our capacity to model these processes and the non-linear feedbacks in the system that ultimately control the formation mineral deposits is still rudimentary. 

This project aims to continue the development develop a multi-component, multi-phase reactive transport framework (conceptual and numerical) for modelling the complex feedbacks between mechanical, chemical and thermal processes that result in specific mineral deposits of critical minerals. This work will draw on recent methods developed by the Supervisory Institutions (UPC and UT teams) on multi-phase reactive flow with complex rheologies and tailor them to simulate magmatic systems of significance for the energy transition, their thermo-chemical-mechanical coupling, and their geophysical and geochemical signatures.

The outcomes of this project will not only support a rapid transition to low-carbon technologies, but it will be also directly applicable to the study of geothermal systems and other terrestrial planets and moons in the solar system.

The successful candidate will collaborate closely with researchers at the University of Twente (Netherlands), as well as with partners Geoscience Australia, Minerals Target International and BHP.

If you are interested please send us your CV and application form (as pdf files) to before the end of March 2024. 

The position will remain open until filled.
