Mathematical models for porous media: pore to core upscaling

The research activities within the Computational mathematics group at Hasselt University ( have a focus on the mathematical modelling, analysis, upscaling and the numerical simulation of processes encountered in the real life. The present work is focused on mathematical aspects related to processes like flow and chemical reactions taking place in porous media and will be carried out within the Odysseus grant DynScale funded by the FWO. The research will be carried out in collaboration with international research partners in the Netherlands, Germany, and Norway.

We seek a PhD student working on the mathematical modelling and the upscaling of processes like multi-phase flow and reactive transport in porous media. 



The requirements are: 

  • MSc in mathematics (or related disciplines with good mathematical background); MSc students who will graduate in February are welcome to apply 
  • Interested in doing research in applied mathematics, in particular the mathematical modelling and upscaling of processes involving multiple scales.
  • Cooperative person who can work well in teams.
  • Good knowledge of English
