Postdoctoral position on flow and transport modeling in karst conduits for ERC-Synergy project

Publication Date: 20 April 2023

Deadline: 31 May 2023

The Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDAEA-CSIC) offers a two-year postdoctoral contract to work in the ERC-Synergy project KARST, led by Dr. Marco Dentz, from the Groundwater and Hydrogeochemistry group. The selected person will be in charge of characterizing and modeling conduit scale water flow and solute transport to achieve a new fundamental understanding of these processes. The tasks include the integration of three-dimensional geometrical data of caves obtained from LIDAR measurements into numerical CFD models, among other tasks.

The candidate must hold a Ph.D. degree in engineering, computational science, physics, applied mathematics, geophysics, earth science, or a related field, and experience in programming (Python/C++) and manipulating large data sets

Working conditions

  • Contract duration: full-time during 2 years, possible extension for an additional year.
