PoreLab offers PhD and Master degree projects. PhD positions are announced regularly. Potential master students are asked to make contact with Center members / PIs. Examples of master projects are attached.
Two special courses are offered as part of the PhD program. The courses are offered at both universities, UiO and NTNU and are therefore doubly coded.
PoreLab course 1: CODE UiO FYS4465/NTNU code pending
Theory and simulation of flows in complex media
Background assumed: Equilibrium statistical mechanics. Some students may know about diffusion/Langevin equations/basic theory of Onsager reciprocity relations, others will know the Boltzmann equation. Goal: Bring the student to understand the hydrodynamics of flows in porous media, including thermal gradients and concentration gradients. Also, the student will get a toolbox to simulate the flow in porous media on different scales. The course will support the experimental course in PoreLab.
PoreLab course 2: FYS4420/FYS9420 at UiO or PG8605/TPG4565 at NTNU
Experimental condensed matter/petroleum physics
Background assumed: Thermodynamics and/or fundamental statistical physics, fluid mechanics and electromagnetism. A first course in experimental physics/reservoir engineering, including elementary uncertainty calculations. Goal: The students learn several experimental techniques in condensed matter and/or petroleum physics and they learn how to write project based scientific reports. The course will support theoretical and numerical course in PoreLab.
