PhD Fellowship in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Drill String Mechanics

The goal of this project is to improve our understanding of fluid dynamics and particle transport within the annular space outside a drill string, and to strengthen our knowledge of the coupling between drill string vibrations and fluid flow. The project will study this topic using mainly computational and theoretical approaches, and will investigate the roles of fluid rheology, flow regime and borehole inclination on the transport of particles and the drill string motion. The industrial motivation for the study is to develop more efficient diagnostics of drill string vibrations, and to enable control of particularly lateral motion of the string through a new, patented downhole tool.

Mục tiêu của dự án này là nâng cao hiểu biết của chúng ta về động lực học chất lỏng và sự vận chuyển hạt trong không gian hình khuyên bên ngoài dây khoan, đồng thời củng cố kiến thức của chúng ta về sự liên kết giữa dao động của dây khoan và dòng chất lỏng. Dự án sẽ nghiên cứu chủ đề này bằng cách sử dụng chủ yếu các phương pháp tính toán và lý thuyết, đồng thời sẽ điều tra vai trò của lưu biến chất lỏng, chế độ dòng chảy và độ nghiêng của lỗ khoan đối với sự vận chuyển của các hạt và chuyển động của dây khoan. Động lực công nghiệp cho nghiên cứu là phát triển chẩn đoán rung động dây khoan hiệu quả hơn và cho phép kiểm soát chuyển động đặc biệt theo phương ngang của dây thông qua một công cụ khoan lỗ mới, được cấp bằng sáng chế.

Job description

PhD Fellowship in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Drill String Mechanics at the Faculty of Science and Technology, Department of Energy and Petroleum Engineering. The position is vacant from 01 April 2023.

This is a trainee position that will give promising researchers an opportunity for academic development through a PhD education leading to a doctoral degree.

The hired candidate will be admitted to the PhD program in Science and Technology. The education includes relevant courses to about six months of study, a dissertation based on independent research, participation in national and international research environments, relevant academic communication, a trial lecture and public defence. Read more about the PhD education at UiS on our website.

The appointment is for three years with research duties exclusively.

The position is associated with the Centre for Research-based Innovation DigiWells. The center is a cooperation of NORCE Norwegian Research Centre, the University of Stavanger, the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), and the University of Bergen. It is funded by AkerBP, ConocoPhillips, Equinor, Lundin Energy, TotalEnergies, Vår Energi, Wintershall DEA, and the Research Council of Norway.

Qualification requirements

We are looking for applicants with a strong academic background who have completed a five-year master degree (3+2) within physics, mathematics, mechanical engineering or computational engineering , preferably acquired recently; or possess corresponding qualifications that could provide a basis for successfully completing a doctorate.

To be eligible for admission to the doctoral programmes at the University of Stavanger both the grade for your master’s thesis and the weighted average grade of your master’s degree must individually be equivalent to or better than a B grade. If you finish your education (masters degree) in the spring of 2023 you are also welcome to apply.

Applicants with an education from an institution with a different grade scale than A-F, and/or with other types of credits than sp/ECTS, must attach a confirmed conversion scale that shows how the grades can be compared with the Norwegian A-F scale and a Diploma Supplement or similar that explains the scope of the subject that are included in the education. You can use these conversion scales  to calculate your points for admission.

We are looking for applicants with strong academic backgrounds within applied mathematics, physics and computational fluid dynamics.

The following criteria will be emphasized:

  • Background within physics and fluid mechanics
  • Background within numerical methods such as finite volume or finite element methods
  • Background and experience within machine learning and data-driven modelling
  • Programming skills and preferably background within high-performance computing

Emphasis is also placed on your:

  • motivation and potential for research within the field
  • professional and personal skills for completing the doctoral degree within the timeframe
  • ability to work independently and in a team, be innovative and creative
  • ability to work structured and handle a heavy workload
  • having a good command of both oral and written English

To apply for this position please follow the link "Apply for this job". Your application letter, relevant education and work experience as well as language skills must be registered here. In your application letter, you must state your research interests and motivation for the position.

The following documents must be uploaded as attachments to your application:

  • CV with a full summary of your education and experience
  • references, certificates/diplomas and other documentation that you consider relevant
  • Diploma Supplement or similar and a confirmed conversion scale if this is required
  • documentation on competence in English if this is required
  • publications or other relevant research work

Applications are evaluated based on the information available in Jobbnorge at the application deadline. You should ensure that your application shows clearly how your skills and experience meet the criteria which are set out above and that you have attached the necessary documentation. 

The documentation must be available in either a Scandinavian language or in English. If the total size of the attachments exceeds 30 MB, they must be compressed before upload.

Please note that information on applicants may be published even if the applicant has requested not to be included in the official list of applicants - see Section 25 of the Freedom of Information Act. If your request is not granted, you will be notified.
