PhD position on Geomechanics of H2 storage

A position for a PhD in Geomechanics is open at Politecnico di Torino (Italy). The doctoral project will focus on geomechanical aspects of H2 storage in salt caverns and depleted reservoirs. The hydro-mechanical response of caprocks/reservoir rocks will be investigated accounting for fatigue and chemo-mechanical effects. The research programme will be carried out jointly with ENI E&P and the PhD student is expected to spend around one year in the industry, bridging the gap between academic research and industrial applications.
