The GEM institute, Nantes University (France), is looking for a candidate for a PhD thesis as part of the ANR (French National Research Agency) project PERSÉE (Permeability evolution of granular soils in an internal erosion context). The aim of this PhD thesis is to develop a model to predict the evolution of the permeability of granular soils during the suffusion process. Such a model needs to take into account the evolution of the granular micro-structure (pore size and constriction size distributions). The PhD thesis is described in the attached pdf file.
The interested candidate can apply by filling the questionnaire on the link below: https://questionnaires.univ-nantes.fr/index.php/983331?lang=en
The deadline for the application is April 20th 2022.
We are looking forward to receiving your applications.
