Postdoctoral Researcher position in the field of experimental ice mechanics

Understanding how ice fractures has fundamental importance in arctic marine technology and geophysics. The fracture processes of interest include fragmentation of sea ice against polar ships, ice sheets broken by ocean waves, leads forming in sea ice, and formation of crevasses in glaciers. The importance of ice fracture research is enhanced by global warming, which is both increasing the fragmentation and changing the mechanical properties of ice. Warm ice is different that cold ice.

HE-MSCA PhD Position in Simulation for Geosciences

This project is framed within the MSCA EarthSafe Doctoral Network.

 We need candidates with a strong background in Numerical Methods and Continuum Mechanics.

Thermo-chemical-mechanical interactions of fluid phases and solid rocks control magmatic and hydrothermal processes of tectonic, biological and economic significance. However, our capacity to model these processes and the non-linear feedbacks in the system that ultimately control the formation mineral deposits is still rudimentary.
