Position: PhD project: Petrophysical Modelling of Fluid Permeability in Tight Sedimentary Rocks
Institution: Technical University of Denmark
Location: Kongens Lyngby, Lyngby‐Taarbæk Municipality, Denmark
Duties: DTU Civil Engineering is inviting applications for a 3-year PhD position starting winter 2020. It is a challenge to predict permeability of tight sedimentary rocks, as for example shale, marly chalk and diatomite, when only cuttings and well logs are at hand. One reason is the typically complex lithology which makes interpretation of geophysical bore hole logs non-trivial, the other the small size cuttings. This project involves laboratory work and modelling. The laboratory work involves surface-mineralogical methods, low field nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry, as well as advanced electrical and elastic characterization. Modelling will involve the use and development of theoretical models for one and two phase flow in a fine network
Requirements: A two-year master's degree (120 ECTS points) in civil engineering, petroleum engineering, environmental engineering or similar; Good abilities concerning laboratory analysis; Interest in theoretical modelling

DTU Civil Engineering develops and utilizes science and technical knowledge for the benefit of society through a sustainable development of construction and the built environment. As part of a strong university, the department provides research, study programs, innovation and research-based consultancy of the highest quality in civil engineering. The Department develops new knowledge and solutions for the challenges facing the construction industry based on classic disciplines of building research, as well as the monitoring and decoding of physical phenomena,—we combine theory and practice. DTU Civil Engineering has a special role in researching, educating and developing new construction engineering solutions for Arctic settings, for the benefit of society in both Denmark and Greenland. The department has a scientific staff of about 80 persons, 60 PhD students, and a technical/administrative support staff of about 50 persons. Technology for people DTU develops technology for people. With our international elite research and study programmes, we are helping to create a better world and to solve the global challenges formulated in the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Hans Christian Ørsted founded DTU in 1829 with a clear vision to develop and create value using science and engineering to benefit society. That vision lives on today. DTU has 12,000 students and 6,000 employees. We work in an international atmosphere and have an inclusive, evolving, and informal working environment. Our main campus is in Kgs. Lyngby north of Copenhagen and we have campuses in Roskilde and Ballerup and in Sisimiut in Greenland.
