Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) invites applications for the following position:
Doctoral Researcher on the project "Heat transport in groundwater"
starting date: January 2022 or later, limited to 3 years, 75 percent of a full-time employment, salary will be up to E 13 TV-L if the personal requirements and tasks are fulfilled, work place will be located at MLU Halle, Germany.
Research topic: Investigation of thermal and geological factors controlling heat transport in shallow aquifers
The collaborative project is fully funded by the German Research Foundation. The work is supported by experienced, international
experts from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Brisbane (Australia), Utrecht University
(Netherlands) and the Forschungszentrum Jülich (Germany). It will be carried out in close cooperation with the Karlsruhe Institute of
Technology (KIT), which have a complementary focus on laboratory scale processes. The Doctoral Researcher of our subproject is
dedicated to field scale analysis of transient heat flow mechanisms in porous media. This is addressed by well-controlled field
experiments in shallow sedimentary aquifers. The insight gained through these experiments will be complemented by numerical analysis
of field and aquifer analog data in order to validate the concerted role of advection, conduction and dispersion in heterogeneous
systems. Tight cooperation with the KIT will give the opportunity to develop a consistent view of micro- and macro-scale heat
heterogeneity effects. We will validate and refine existing mathematical description in computer-based models.
Task 1: to design, plan and carry out repeated groundwater heat transport and tracer experiments at selected field sites.
Task 2: to reproduce the field conditions in detailed numerical models
Task 3: to review existing field data of experiments conducted by partners and colleagues
Task 4: to assess the individual role of advection, conduction and mechanical dispersion by field and aquifer analog data
Task 5: to develop a consistent mathematical formulation over multiple scales.
The doctoral researcher will elaborate the research tasks under joint supervision of hydrogeologists and engineers. The work will be
carried out mainly in Halle, with research stays at KIT as well as visits at the Utrecht University, The Netherlands. It will be based
on a well-planned set of complementary activities combining field work, computer-based analysis and interpretation. The participating
research groups offer ideal working conditions with modern equipment and continuous support by technicians and student assistants. The new
findings will be published together in international journals, and shared with the community by presentations on international
