POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, Civil and Environmental Engineering and Aeronautics and Astronautics, to join the research groups of Professor Ruben Juanes (CEE) and Professor Youssef Marzouk (AeroAstro). The research is in the areas of uncertainty quantification, surrogate modeling, and machine learning as applied to mathematical models of subsurface fluid flow and mechanics, with particular application to climate-change mitigation technologies like carbon sequestration and hydrogen geostorage, among others. Responsibilities include developing methods and implementing workflows for uncertainty quantification and risk assessment that utilize large-scale forward computational models. The position will interface with both research groups and the research will lead to practical implementations, high-caliber publications, and visibility within the porous-media and uncertainty quantification communities.
REQUIRED: Ph.D. in computational science, earth sciences, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, or related field; knowledge of and demonstrated skill set in computational science, including mathematical and numerical modeling, inverse problems, surrogate and reduced-order modeling, uncertainty quantification, machine learning, etc.; ability to work and communicate effectively in a multidisciplinary research team; track record of publications and scientific output; self-motivation; ability to work independently; and excellent organizational, analytical, and writing skills. PREFERRED: interdisciplinary research background in earth science and porous-media flow and mechanics. Job #209443/14/22
