Two Postdoctoral Researchers in Computational and Applied Mathematics

The Computational Optimization and Modeling of Porous Media (COMP-M) group has two openings for post-doctoral position, in the department of Computational and Applied Mathematics at Rice University.

Position 1:
One postdoc will work on the modeling and simulation of pore scale flows in three-dimensional porous structures characterizing real rocks. With the increase in computational resources and performance, digital rock has become an attractive modeling tool that complements well lab experiments. The postdoc will add complex physics to a computational framework developed at COMP-M. Under the supervision of Prof. Beatrice Riviere, COMP-M director, the postdoc will manage a team of graduate students and will work closely with industrial partners.

Position 2:
One postdoc will work on the simulation of geomechanics and its coupling with multiphase multicomponent reservoir flows. The postdoc will work closely with industrial partners.

Each position is a full-time, 12 month fixed-term position with reappointment conditional on satisfactory performance. Salary is competitive and funding is available for two years.
Application review will begin on September 1 2018 and the position will remain open until filled. Precise start date is flexible.

Candidates should email their applications to riviere@rice.edu: CV, research statement (2-page max), up to 2 relevant publications, and at least 2 recommendation letters. The letters can be emailed directly to Prof. Riviere.
