El Grup d'Hidrologia Subterrània (UPC+CSIC) està buscant un/a estudiant de doctorat per incorporar-se el curs sept 2019. El projecte es basarà en el transport de nanoparticules en medi porós i l'efecte en aquest transport a diferents condicions geoquímiques. El treball anirà enmarcat dintre del projecte de investigació nacional denominat "Atenuació de Patogens i contaminants orgànics en medi porós durant operacions de recarrega gestionada d'aqüífers (MONOPOLIOS). RTI2018-101990-B-100". El Grup de Hidrologia Subterrània es un grup de investigació consolidat amb més de 20 anys d'experiència en aspectes relacionats amb la hidrologia subterrània, el medi ambient i la gestió sostenible de recursos hídrics. Està format per al voltant de 40 persones, entre catedràtics, professors, investigadors, post-docs i estudiants de doctorat. La seva producció es de uns 50 publicacions científiques (més del 80% en revistes d'alt impacte, incloses en el primer Quartil) i un promig de 4 tesis doctorals a l'any.

Perfil de l'estudiant:

- Alta motivació i amb ganes de realitzar la tesi doctoral convinant tarees experimentals amb tarees de modelització. Es primarà la experiència experimental prèvia.

    Description for the project
     

    Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) – storing water in aquifers during times of excess – is a key strategy to enrich groundwater resources in water scarce regions by providing intermediate storage, addressing the typical mismatch between water demand and availability. It can help to mitigate the effects of climate change, and to support water-related environmental services. However, MAR is characterised by complex interaction of physical, biological and hydrochemical processes influencing water quality and the sustainability of infiltration rates. Individual processes are in principal known, but there is a significant knowledge gap on how they are linked and affect each other. MARSoluT addresses this knowledge gap by a collaborative effort in a multi-disciplinary team.

    Applicants from all relevant research fields are encouraged to apply, namely geosciences, engineering, hydrology, and hydrochemistry. The selected candidates will perform high-level research activities towards a PhD. The MARSoluT (Managed Aquifer Recharge Solutions Training Network) Innovative Training Network (ITN) is funded by the Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action of the EU.

     

    Description of the ESRs’ individual research projects in Barcelona city:

     

    ESR4 project: Chaotic flow strategies to enhance contaminant degradation during managed aquifer recharge (MAR) operations
    Host Institution: Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain
    Main supervisor: Daniel Fernandez-Garcia

    Objective: The candidate will develop, test and apply numerical models based on Lagrangian approaches to simulate chaotic flow during MAR operations. MAR can improve the quality of the recharging water by enhancing the reduction-oxidation processes taking place along the infiltration path and in the mixing area. Besides traditional pollutants, Emerging Organic Compounds (EOCs) have been routinely detected in the recharging water. These compounds are associated with pharmaceutical and personal-care products as well as industrial compounds or pesticides. The project contends that an engineering sequence of injections and extractions in the aquifer during MAR operations will increase the contact between recharging solution and groundwater, enhancing mixing and promoting formation of broad redox zonation capable to effectively degrade complex mixtures of EOCs. The ESR will develop modelling tools to simulate chaotic flow reactive transport during artificial recharge with the ultimate objective to assess the risk to sensitive locations, i.e., human health and ecosystems. In this context, Random Walk Particle Tracking Methods offer a convenient numerical modelling solution particularly efficient in dealing with heterogeneities and a large variety of complex transport processes such as non-Fickian transport, incomplete mixing and multiple porosity systems.

    The candidate should have an engineering background (civil engineer), good theoretical and programming skills (mathematics and programming language knowledge), basic knowledge in hydrogeology and fluid mechanics.

    ESR5 project: Modelling the fate and transport of microbial pathogens and emerging contaminants with Lagrangian approaches
    Host Institution: Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (UPC), Barcelona, Spain
    Main supervisor: Xavier Sanchez-Vila

    Objective: Recycled water used for artificial recharge of aquifers can suppose a major health risk associated to microbial pathogens and emerging contaminants. Managed Aquifer Recharge can improve the quality of the recharging water along the infiltration path and in the mixing area. Besides traditional pollutants, such as microbial pathogens, Emerging Organic Compounds (EOCs) (pharmaceutical and personal-care, industrial and agricultural compounds) have been routinely detected in the recharging water. The ESR will develop modelling tools to simulate the fate and transport of microbial pathogens and emerging contaminants during artificial recharge with the ultimate objective to assess the risk to sensitive locations, i.e., human health and ecosystems. Modelling will deal with heavy complexities, from heterogeneity of a large variety of flow and transport parameters, dealing with non-Fickian transport, incomplete mixing, multiple porosity systems, as well as non-linear sorption and co-metabolic degradation.

    The candidate should have a background in modelling, environmental sciences, and organic chemistry, with solid mathematical concepts and tools. Some knowledge in microbiology would be an advantage.
