Level: Master degree
Maximum employment: 38 hours per week (1 FTE)
Duration of contract: 4 years
Salary scale: €2062 to €2638 per month gross
Civil Engineering and Geosciences
The Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences provides leading, international research and education. The Faculty consists of the departments of Transport & Planning, Structural Engineering, Geosciences & Engineering, Water management, Hydraulic Engineering and Geoscience & Remote Sensing.
The Department of Geoscience and Engineering, where the research project will be hosted stands for top-level research and education on the use of the Earth's natural resources and its subsurface space building on a unique integration of Geological and Engineering Sciences. The three sections of Applied Geology, Petroleum Engineering and Applied Geophysics and Petrophysics are involved in the project
The PhD position we offer is part of the CarbFrac project, an initiative supported by the Dutch Government with the participation of Industry Partners. The main object of the project is to further our understanding of the mechanical and fluid flow behaviour of fractured carbonate reservoirs, both hydrocarbons and geothermics. In the last years, we have developed deep knowledge on geometry and properties of fracture networks in outcrops (Applied Geology), the mechanic behaviour of multilayer rocks (Applied Geophysics and Petrophysics) and advanced modelling of flow (Petroleum Engineering). With the CarbFrac project we aim at making the next step and investigate multiscale fluid-rock interactions in fractured carbonate reservoirs. Such interactions are key for the understanding of dissolution and cementation patterns, widely seen as one of the most important challenges in the Hydrocarbon and Geothermal Industry.
The new PhD will fit into a very dynamic environment with more than 4 PhD working on related topics at TUDelft, inclusive of outcrop analysis, rock mechanic deformation and numerical modelling, and with 2-3 PhD working at the Department of Structural Engineering at the Technical University Eindhoven, our partner in this research endeavour.
For the CarbFrac project we are looking for a young enthusiastic candidate with a strong numerical background (including coding) and clear affinity with the chemical processes involved in carbonate dissolution and precipitation, and with strong enough geological knowledge to interact efficiently with the other members of the project. Some experience in running chemical experiments in the lab is welcome.
Conditions of employment
TU Delft offers an attractive benefits package, including a flexible work week, free high-speed Internet access from home (with a contract of two years or longer), and the option of assembling a customised compensation and benefits package (the 'IKA'). Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.
As a PhD candidate you will be enrolled in the TU Delft Graduate School. TU Delft Graduate School provides an inspiring research environment; an excellent team of supervisors, academic staff and a mentor; and a Doctoral Education Programme aimed at developing your transferable, discipline-related and research skills.
