TitlePhD position: reactive transport modeling in fractured media
CategoryJob in Academia
EmployerUniversity of Minnesota
LocationUnited States, MN, Minneapolis
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateTuesday, September 01, 2020
Prof. Peter Kang’s research lab ( in the Department of Earth 
and Environmental Sciences at the University of Minnesota (UMN) is looking for a 
Ph.D. student in the area of mixing and reactive transport modeling in fractured 
media starting in Spring or Fall 2021. Reactive transport in fractured media is 
critical for many earth, civil and industrial engineering applications such as 
CO2 sequestration, aquifer storage and recovery, environmental restoration of 
contaminated fractured media, hydrocarbon extraction from unconventional shale 
aquifers, and the long‐term storage of spent nuclear fuel. This position will 
cover full tuition, approximately $25,000 for the 12-month salary, and full 
benefits. The candidate will have access to enormous computational resources at 
Minnesota Supercomputing Institute, and have an opportunity to visit and 
collaborate with research scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory and other 
institutions. The candidate will also have opportunities to conduct experiments 
at Prof. Kang’s microfluidics lab and visual porous media lab at Saint Anthony 
Falls Laboratory.

The candidate should have backgrounds in fluid mechanics, numerical methods for 
partial differential equations, linear algebra, and computer programming. 
Background in hydrogeology, biogeochemistry or geomechanics is helpful but not 
required. Interested bachelor or master students in earth sciences, (civil, 
environmental, mechanical, chemical, petroleum) engineering, physics, applied 
mathematics, or other closely-related disciplines are encouraged to contact me. 
Successful applicants are expected to have a strong academic background, be 
highly motivated, and committed to performing high-quality research. If 
interested, please email Dr. Kang ( with the following materials: 
a detailed academic CV (including a list of publications if applicable), 
transcripts, a brief statement that highlights the research interests and 
skills, and contact details of two/three references.
