Applications are welcome for a 4-year fully-funded PhD position at Uppsala University, Sweden. This 4-year PhD project will have a focus on developing an advanced three-dimensional numerical model for simulating coupled hydro-mechanical processes in fractured and/or porous geological media (including heterogeneous bedrocks, soil layers, and fault zones). The simulation tool will be applied to model and predict groundwater drawdown and land subsidence during underground construction in dense urban areas. The model will be validated and calibrated against extensive measurement data available from a major ongoing underground construction project in Sweden. In addition to working at Uppsala University, the PhD candidate will have an opportunity to interact closely with the infrastructure industry.
The deadline for application is 1 December 2023. Please see attached pdf file for details.
