The University of Edinburgh is seeking a postdoctoral Research Associate for 3 years (36 months) to investigate the behaviour of methane gas inside porous rock media using molecular dynamics simulations. This is part of a joint research project between the University of Edinburgh, the University of Strathclyde , and King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) on the dynamics of gas flows in underground reservoirs.
This position is to work with Prof Jason Reese, Dr Matthew Borg, and their research team in the School of Engineering. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, the School’s joint submission with Heriot-Watt University was first in the UK for “research power”, with 94% of our research activity achieving world-leading (4) or internationally excellent (3) ratings. The University of Edinburgh is one of the world’s top 25 universities.
A consortium of three internationally-leading UK institutions (Edinburgh University, Warwick University, and Daresbury Laboratory) are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to develop new modelling capabilities for multiscale interfacial fluid dynamics. This is part of a flagship £3.4M EPSRC Programme Grant targeting the multiscale fluid dynamics needed to simulate and design engineering flow systems of the future.
