Upcoming PhD Scholarship in Earth Patterns (start January 2014)

A PhD will soon be announced (later summer 2013) for research on complex systems at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen. The position involves basic research in fluid dynamics and the mechanics of solid materials. Central objectives of the research are stress generation by reactive porous flow, material deformation and fracture mechanics.

The position is financed by the VILLUM FOUNDATION and is to be filled by January 2014 (or as soon as possible hereafter). Researchers with a background in physics, mathematics, computer science or Earth sciences are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate preferably has computational and/or theoretical experience with complex systems, statistical mechanics, fluid and solid mechanics or related fields.

The researcher will be a part of the complexity group at the Niels Bohr Institute which has 30+ members of many nationalities (including 7 permanent faculty members). The group has several decades of experience with modeling of complex systems including fluid flow, turbulence, dynamical systems, granular materials and pattern formation. Most group members are listed here.

As an equal opportunities employer, the University of Copenhagen welcomes applications from suitable qualified people, regardless of age, race, religion, gender or ethnic background.
