Post-doc positions at CNRS - Earth Sciences Institute of Orléans
CNRS - Earth Sciences Institute of Orléans We are proposing several post-doctoral positions at the Earth Sciences Institute of Orléans sponsored by Labex Voltaire. We are looking for excellent candidates to conduct research on flow and transport in geological porous and fractured media (colloidal transport, geomechanics, poromechanics, microfluidics, pore-scale modelling, column experiments...).
Along with their CV and track record, candidates should propose a research project (2-3 pages) which includes the methodology(ies) they want to implement. They should also provide names of scientists for reference. Projects are expected to use the various experimental and analytical facilities hosted by the laboratory partners and address one of the scientific issues listed in the Labex Voltaire website (http://labex-voltaire.prod.lamp.cnrs.fr/home-page/).
Positions are for 1+1 year, and depending on results, can be prolonged expected to lead to CNRS or University permanent positions). In addition to salary (fixed according to candidate’s experience and French’s rules), the LabEx will provide funding to carry out research activities (laboratory expenses, participation to meetings, etc..).

Postdoctoral Fellowships and PhD positions in Multiscale imaging, reconstruction and modelling
Australian National University and Queensland University of Technology The ARC Training Centre for M3D Innovation will train a new generation of PhD students and Postdoctoral Fellows in the emerging area of Digital Materials and Advanced Manufacturing. M3D Innovation is funded under the ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centres (ITTC) scheme with the objective to foster close partnerships between university-based researchers and research end-users. Research projects will include the development of cutting-edge imaging and analysis technology and its application to a wide range of fields including: Digital Geomaterials; Metallurgical processes; Non-Destructive Evaluation; Additive Manufacturing; Engineered Wood products; Heritage Science/Arts and Medical Devices. The projects are run in collaboration with our industry partners across a range of industries (e.g., Australian Museum, Equinor, Stryker, Queensland Dept. of Agriculture and Forestry, Defence Science Technology Group, Beck Engineering) and promise to deliver real-world outcomes with ground-breaking results within diverse fields. The program should offer students or postdoctoral fellows a chance to obtain practical experience through 12-month industry-based research training with relevant industry partners.
X-ray tomography for in-situ characterization of crystallization damage in layered artworks
Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour (UPPA) One of the most common deterioration problems affecting cultural heritage worldwide is crystallization damage caused by an interplay between salts, environmental changes and material properties. Especially porous materials are susceptible to salt crystallization. It threatens artworks such as sculptures, ceramics, frescoes, paintings, archeological objects and buildings in museums as well as outdoor environments. Most of these artworks are made of an assembly of layered materials with different physicochemical properties. Additional layers of material are sometimes added as conservation measures. The properties of all materials involved and the interfaces between these materials affect the artwork’s susceptibility to deterioration.
As a PhD student within the CRYSTINART consortium, you will focus on the use of high-resolution X-ray computed tomography to characterize salt damage across layered artwork systems. You will mimic salt weathering scenarios in a climatic chamber, and once realistic scenarios defined, you will translate them to the X-ray tomograph. Time-resolved high-resolution X-ray computed tomography allows to follow the changes in the internal structure of the layered porous materials in-situ, and to monitor brine and salt crystal distributions as a function of time in a non-destructive way. Subsequently, you will set up image analysis workflows to derive quantitative data from the X-ray scans that can then be employed as direct input for theoretical crystallization damage models and for numerical studies.
Postdoctoral position in the area of emulsion flows in porous meida
University of Calgary The PDF will work in the area of spatiotemporal visualization of multiphase flows and interfacial fluid dynamics in porous media using (1) integrated microfluidics and confocal microscopy and (2) visual high pressure, high temperature micromodels. Applications is related, but not limited, to the subsurface flows and the understanding of underlying physics in enhanced hydrocarbon recovery processes.
We welcome applications from candidates with a background in engineering, physics, applied math, or related disciplines with a strong interest in experimental and computational fluid dynamics. Previous experience in Microfluidic, Microscopy, Scientific Computing, and Image Analysis is highly desirable. In particular, relevant background in experimental and theoretical oil recovery research as well as numerical simulation of multiphase flow in porous media is an asset.
