Closure Date* None *
PhD scholarship position at the of Piotr Szymczak from the Faculty of 
Physics, University of Warsaw in collaboration with the Institute of 
Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw in the group. The project 
involves the analysis of pattern formation in dissolving porous rocks. 
Strong coupling between the flow and dissolution in such systems may lead to 
the spontaneous formation of pronounced dissolution channels ("wormholes"). 
The form of these channels and speed of their advancement depend on the flow 
rate, reaction rate and porosity difference between dissolved and 
undissolved mineral, but there is as yet no theory or deeper understanding 
of the exact form of this dependence. In the project, we will attack this 
problem by the combination of numerical modeling and analytical approaches. 
Hence we seek candidates with expertise in one or more of the following 
areas: numerical modeling of reactive transport in porous and fractured 
media, multiphase flow, physical processes in geology, transport processes, 
geochemical self-organization or applied mathematics (Stefan-like problems, 
unstable growth etc.). A strong background in continuum mechanics and fluid 
dynamics, and fluent English are also necessary.

The commencement date is October 1, 2018.  The monthly PhD scholarship is 
3000 PLN (~700 euro, tax-free), which is competitive for the cost of living 
in Warsaw, plus access to funds for international travel to meetings and 

The post holder will have access to travel funds for international 
meetings/conferences. Inquiries and applications should be sent by email to Applications should include a detailed CV, a 
cover letter with a short statement of research interests and motivation and 
two names of potential referees. Application should be sent as soon as 
possible, since the commencement date is in a very near future.
