|Title||Numerical simulations of convection in porous media|
|Employer||Université Libre de Bruxelles|
|Location||Belgium, Brussels, Brussels|
|International||Yes, international applications are welcome|
|Closure Date||* None *|
A postdoctoral position is available at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) to work on the
research programme CONVINCE (Convective instabilities in porous media and sea ice) which is
a collaborative 5 year research programme at ULB between
- Nonlinear Physical Chemistry Unit (Prof. A. De Wit)
- Statistical Physics and Plasmas Unit (Prof. B. Knaepen).
- Glaciology Unit (Prof. J.-L. Tison)
The CONVINCE project aims to study the dynamics of convective transport and instabilities of
greenhouse gases (GHG) in porous media and sea ice by combined field scale measurements,
laboratory-scale experimental studies and theoretical modeling. Our goal is to provide
fundamental understanding of how convective instabilities affect the efficiency of sequestration
conditions and global exchanges of GHG with sea ice. To do so, we will combine complementary
expertises in glaciology, sea ice systems, nonlinear dynamics, chemistry, hydrodynamics,
physics and modeling to design complementary laboratory scale experiments and numerical
simulations devoted to enlighten the interpretation of field scale data.
For the modelling aspects of the project, we are looking for a postdoctoral researcher with a
solid experience in the simulation of hydrodynamic flows with good knowledge of the finite
volume or finite difference method. The project requires the use and adaptation of a complex
finite volume code written in Fortran 90 with MPI parallelisation. The successful candidate
should also be familiar with Linux/Unix programming environments and the
compilation/installation of source libraries / codes. Prior experience in large scale
computations on HPC platforms and knowledge of buoyancy driven hydrodynamic instabilities
is a plus.
The contract is initially for one year starting as soon as the position is fulfilled but can be
renewed after that for a longer period.
Applications with CV (detailing previous experience with the topics discussed above), letter of
motivation and 2-3 letters of recommendation should be sent by email to both
email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
* PhD in physics, fluid mechanics, physical chemistry or mechanical engineering
* Good knowledge of English
