PhD position within Scaling and Uncertainty Modelling in multiphase production
As part of the research project Scaling and Uncertainty Modelling in multiphase production (SUM) we announce one PhD position available August 1, 2017.
The primary objective of SUM is to develop a systematic methodology for uncertainty quantification to be used with multiphase transport simulation tools. To support the development of the methodology, and support improved model fidelity, the project will provide the high quality experimental data needed to establish uncertainty bounds with respect to scaling effects. The project is a collaboration between IFE, SINTEF, and NTNU, combining world-leading competence on fundamental and applied knowledge of multiphase flows with NTNU's strong competence in sensitivity analysis, uncertainty quantification, and statistical analysis.
The aim of the PhD project is to develop and apply methods for uncertainty quantification and sensitivity analysis to predictions of multiphase pipeline flow in a multi-disciplinary team including multiphase flow modelling and experiments, sensitivity analysis, uncertainty quantification and statistics.
The applicants should have a relevant MSc-degree in statistics, applied mathematics, computational fluid dynamics / multiphase flows, or comparable competence. The application should also have experience with programming. Candidates completing their MSc-degree in the Spring 2017 are encouraged to apply.
The successful candidate will be employed at and enrolled in the PhD program either at Department of Structural Engineering or Department of Mathematical Sciences according to his/her interests and background.
Applications with CV, grade transcripts and other enclosures should be submitted via www.jobbnorge.no.
Application deadline: May 1 2017
