Closing date for applications 29-Mar-2018
We seek a physical scientist with a PhD with postdoctoral experience in either fluid dynamics experiments or lattice-Boltzmann modelling of flow in porous media.
You will apply both techniques to determine the distribution of vapour and brine in magmas and its impact on their migration through magma mushes. Some experiments will be imaged with X-ray tomography to examine changes in fluid pathways during reactive flow. The results will provide inputs into large-scale numerical models of magmatic mushes (applied to ore deposits and volcanic eruptions) developed by collaborators in a multidisciplinary consortium.
