VISTA CSD - Center for Modeling of Coupled Subsurface Dynamics

The research center CSD targets how the subsurface is deformed as a result of injection and production of fluids. This occurs in production of hydrocarbons and geothermal energy, storage of energy or CO2 in the subsurface, or by disposal of wastewater.

The interdisciplinary center will involve approximately 40 people, including faculty, researchers, postdocs and PhD students with background in applied and computational mathematics and geoscience. Several MSc students do their research projects within the center.

VISTA days 2021 – A How-To on scientific advice

Societal challenges, uncertainty, advice. These are some of the key words shaping the VISTA Researcher Day on November 16th and the International VISTA Seminar on November 17th.

Available Positions
Subsurface utilization

Four new PhD positions at VISTA CSD

The Department of Mathematics has opened three new PhD positions in computational mathematics, and the Department of Earth Science has opened one PhD position in mathematically oriented geophysics. The positions are fully financed and integrated in the recently established VISTA CSD.
