The recruited post-doctoral researcher will work within the framework of the EU HORIZON-INFRA-2021-TECH-01 DT-GEO project, which aims at deploying a prototype digital twin (DT) for anthropogenic geophysical extreme forecasting (AGEF). The successful candidate will work at ITES (Strasbourg Institute of Earth & Environment) for two years in the numerical modeling group of the ITI GeoT (Interdisciplinary Thematic Institute for the energy system transition) and in strong collaboration with the project partners (GFZ, IG PAS).


The recruited post-doctoral researcher (he/she) will:
- Develop coarse-grained models of georeservoirs described in the EPOS EPISODES database (https://tcs.ah-epos.eu/)
- Implement finite element approaches using the MOOSE framework (https://mooseframework.inl.gov/)
- Implement inverse modeling using PEST framework (https://pesthomepage.org/) for large-scale parameter assessments
- Perform sensitivity and uncertainty analyses of the model parameters
- Develop strategies for exploring long-range and late responses of georeservoirs
- Forecast maximum magnitudes of induced seismicity
- Collaborate closely in an interdisciplinary context with other researchers working on the DTC development of the DT-GEO project
- Present, publish (ISI peer-review) and communicate research results at scientific meetings and in scholarly journals


The recruited post-doctoral researcher (he/she) must have:
- PhD in numerical modeling (at time of employment)
- Experience working in georeservoir modeling
- Knowledge of HPC, geophysics, seismology, geomechanics or geothermal systems will be considered a strong additional asset
- Experience in communicating, writing, publishing scientific works
- Proficiency in English level C2 (according to the European Framework for languages)

Work Context

The “DT-GEO” project aims to deploy a prototype “Digital Twins” (DT) on geophysical extremes consisting of interrelated Digital Twin Components (DTC) dealing with different types of geohazards including natural and anthropogenic induced earthquakes, volcanoes and earthquake-landslide triggered tsunamis. Here, we are looking for a postdoctoral researcher contributing to the development of the DTC related to Anthropogenic Geophysical Extremes Forecasting with four workflow outcomes: forecasting of long-range responses of georeservoirs, forecasting of late responses of georeservoirs, modelling of the largest magnitude, and induced seismic hazard map estimation. The DTC-AGEF will be tested through demonstrators at two relevant European sites: Strasbourg geothermal site in France and KGHM copper ore mine in Poland. The recruited post-doctoral researcher will work on georeservoir modeling for two years at the Interdisciplinary Thematic Institute for the energy system transition (ITI GeoT), a program part or the excellence initiative at Strasbourg University and CNRS which explores geoscience solutions to the energy transition, with a particular focus on deep groundwater: exploration, characterization and optimization of crustal reservoirs, risk management and of public perceptions. ITI GeoT is coordinated by ITES/EOST (Strasbourg Institute of Earth & Environment) in Strasbourg, France.
