The main goal is numerical modelling of fluid flows at various scales with applications in the domains of porous media and geological processes. The objectives of this project are to model the complexity of single and multiphase flows in various porous solids, in the presence of evolving solid interfaces. The specific goal of the position is open and will depend on the candidate's research statement that should be handled in with the application.

The candidate will be part of a lively research environment at the Njord Center, and will study numerically flows in the presence of interfaces and solids. The candidate will be at a strategic interface between laboratory activities that provide unique data and numerical modelling activities.

The position includes collaboration between several groups at the University of Oslo: the section Physics of Geological Processes at the Geoscience Department (Profs. F. Renard and B. Jamtveit) and the Center of Excellence PoreLab at the Physics Institute (Prof. E. Flekkøy), both members of the Njord Center. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in international research networks. The position is jointly funded by Equinor through the Akademia Initiative at the University of Oslo and by the Center of Excellence PoreLab.
