Two PhD positions are opened at INRAE Aix-en-Provence France for next fall 2023.
PhD proposal on Flow kinematic in 3D porous media.
The research unit RECOVER from INRAE is pleased to invite applications of talented and motivated candidates for a PhD (3 years) dedicated to the experimental characterization of the flow kinematic within 3D porous media, to uncover the effect of local heterogeneities on transport processes.
The PhD is fully funded by the Department AQUA from INRAE, and is expected to start in October 2023 (with some flexibility), and the successful candidate will be supervised by Mathieu SOUZY and Pierre PHILIPPE.

Keywords: 3D porous media, experiments, direct visualization techniques, transport process, flow kinematic, pore scale
PhD proposal on multi-scale geomechanics: Advanced micromechanical models for poly-dispersed granular materials.
The research unit RECOVER from INRAE is pleased to invite applications of talented and motivated candidates for a PhD (3 years) dedicated to the development of a new class of multi-scale constitutive models for widely graded materials. This PhD proposal is part of project MiMoDiM (2022-2026) supported by the French National Research Agency (ANR): https://www6.paca.inrae.fr/recover/Nos-projets/MiMoDiM.
The PhD is expected to start in October 2023 (with some flexibility). The PhD candidate will be supersized by Antoine WAUTIER (INRAE), Mehdi POURAGHA (Carleton University), and François NICOT (USMB).
