A postdoctoral research position in Numerical Modelling of EOR/IOR Processes in Chalk Formations


The Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre (Centre for Oil and Gas – DTU), Technical University of Denmark (DTU), invites applicants for a position on investigations of mechanisms and models in the context of advanced water flooding. Centre for Oil and Gas – DTU is established by the Danish Underground Consortium and DTU. As part of a national strategy on oil and gas, the research centre is an ambitious, targeted effort to improve recovery of oil and gas from the Danish North Sea. 

Responsibilities and tasks 
The position will be an integrated part of the advanced water flooding programme with the focus on improving oil recovery in chalk reservoirs in the Danish part of the North Sea. In this context, the candidate is expected to perform innovative, fundamental and applied research on understanding of  fracture-matrix interactions and recovery from fractured chalk reservoirs, and upscaling of  multiphase flow on scales ranging from the core- to field-scale. For field-scale models, employing reliable macroscopic laws capturing the integral effects of fractures on multiphase flow and  reducing the computational complexity of modelling of coupled processes are necessary.  To this end, reliable modeling techniques need to be developed and verified to integrate the key THMC processes, and discrete fracture models in the reservoir simulators. 

The candidate should assist to set-up and develop various numerical tools tailored for modelling of the relevant EOR/IOR methods.  It will contribute to shaping a computational fluid dynamics modelling lab at the centre. Co-supervising of Ph.D./MSc students working with reservoir simulation and collaboration with other researchers and students working with advanced water flooding experiments are required. The team will participate in a growing cross-disciplinary research program, involving several researchers at DTU and other Danish universities, research institutes, and industry. The team will have access to unique field and laboratory data sets to test concepts and methods developed at the centre. 

Application potential
The line-of-sight application potential of this project is to assist the screening processes of potential water based recovery methods in the Kraka, Dan, and Halfdan oil fields.


  • PhD degree in applied mathematics, computational fluid dynamics, petroleum, hydrogeology, chemical, mechanical engineering or other relevant areas;
  • Excellent skills in CFD and programming (preferablly C++);
  • Exceptional skills in mathematics, physics and chemistry;
  • Knowledge of the fundamentals of multiphase flow, geochemistry and geomechanics in porous media;
  • Previous experience with devloping numerical codes for modelling coupled flow and transport in porous formations with discrete geological features is?highly advantageous.
  • Ability to work in a multi-disciplinary environment;

We offer
DTU is a leading technical university globally recognized for the excellence of its research, education, innovation and scientific advice. We offer a rewarding and challenging job in an international environment.

The overarching purpose of The Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre is to identify new technological and conceptual solutions that will enable increased oil and gas extraction in the Danish section of the North Sea. The research activities at the centre cover selected aspects of expertise: Reservoir characterization, Enhanced Oil & Gas Recovery Processes, Drilling & Production Technology Concepts and Production Facilities, Materials Research & Design. The centre will develop deep, new understanding within these disciplines with a line-of-sight to application. Located at The Technical University of Denmark research groups at the University of Copenhagen, Aarhus University, Aalborg University and the Geological Survey of Greenland and Denmark will be affiliated with the Centre. When fully operational, the centre will employ and engage more than 100 people.

DTU is a technical university providing internationally leading research, education, innovation and scientific advice. Our staff of 6,000 advance science and technology to create innovative solutions that meet the demands of society, and our 11,200 students are being educated to address the technological challenges of the future.
