PhD Position Available

The Metamorphic Processes Research Group (MPRG) at the Institute of Geoscience, JGU Mainz, invites applications for a PhD position in the field of Metamorphic Processes. This is a unique opportunity to contribute to cutting-edge research at the intersection of computational methods and geological sciences. 

 Understanding natural processes involves the ability to solve complex systems of equations (partial differential equations – PDEs) in order to predict the time evolution of highly interacting systems. Nowadays, modern programming languages, like Julia, allow the development of fast, high-level algorithms. The successful candidate will focus on the development and application of computational methods related to PDE-constrained optimization in relation to porous fluid flow and metamorphic reactions. This approach allows the integration of geological/petrological/geophysical data in a unified framework. 

You will work within a dynamic and interdisciplinary team, utilizing state-of-the-art computational tools to model and simulate the complex phenomena driving metamorphic transformations.
