PhD position at Uppsala University on flow and transport in fractured rocks

Applications are welcome for a 4-year fully-funded PhD position at Uppsala University, Sweden. This PhD project will have a focus on developing numerical models for predicting the geometrical and hydrological (e.g., flow and transport) properties of fracture networks as well as coupled hydromechanical effects, based on field experimental data. The research aims to provide implications for the long-term safety assessment of deep geologic repositories, including related risks and uncertainties. The research will be done in the context of the international DECOVALEX project (, a large international research collaboration with the objective to advance the understanding and modeling of coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) processes in geological systems.

The deadline for application is 1 September 2023. Please see attached pdf file for details.
