The Division of Geothermal Research at KIT (http://www.agw.kit.edu/251.php) focuses on reservoir characterization, exploration and engineering in deep geothermal applications. The projects are conducted at a national and international level, with numerous partners and application fields worldwide. Key aspects of research in this domain are the development and application of numerical tools to simulate coupled non-linear thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) processes.
The position is aiming at the development and application of a numerical tool (MOOSE solver environment) to solve coupled thermo-hydraulic-chemical (THC) processes, considering two-phase flow (Navier-Stokes), multi component transport as well as mineral dissolution and precipitation.
In addition you must have a master degree in chemical engineering, geophysics, applied physics, fluid mechanics or similar degree with strong background in numerical modelling. We expect the candidate to be team-oriented. She / He should have a profound interest in numerical simulation - especially FEM - and good programming skills in C++, Python. Familiarity with thermodynamics, aquatic chemistry and geosystems is desirable, and should also be a domain of interest of the candidate.
In this context, we are searching for a highly motivated scientist ready to join our working group.
