There is an immediate opening for a graduate study (Master’s student for two years) in the area of geological engineering.

The project involves understanding the complex multi-phase flows and transport phenomena that regulate how CO2 behaves in the porous subsurface during and after it is injected underground for the purpose of carbon sequestration. It involves analytical and numerical modeling.


QUALIFICATIONS FOR ADMISSION: Applicants should hold a Bachelor’s degree with a strong background in the natural sciences and/or engineering, has strong math skills and a minimum average of 85% in the last 2 years of their Bachelor’s degree (related to science, engineering or math)

Strong knowledge of MATLAB is required.


EXPECTED STARTING DATE: January (winter) semester 2018.
