PhD Position on Multi-scale hydro-mechanical modeling of coalbed methane recovery at the University of Lorraine, France

Applications are welcomed for a PhD position at GeoRessources laboratory, University of Lorraine (France). The PhD project aims at investigating the hydro-mechanical couplings in coalbed methane recovery. Candidates should demonstrate fundamental knowledge of solid and fluid mechanics principles governing the behaviour of porous and fractured media and show motivation for working at the interface between disciplines. An experience in developing numerical methods, particularly DFN/DEM would be an asset.
