University of Wyoming

Center of Innovation for Flow through Porous Media (COIFPM) is the most advanced oil and gas research facility in the world.

It is the home of Piri Research Group (PRG).

COIFPM is located at the High Bay Research Facility (HBRF) of the University of Wyoming.

The HBRF is located at 651 N. 19th Street in Laramie, Wyoming.

The HBRF contains more than 90,000 square feet of high-bay and traditional laboratory space, and affiliated office and meeting areas. The research spaces facilitate research into unconventional oil and gas reservoirs, part of UW’s Tier-1 Engineering Initiative, and will house the COIFPM, Improved Oil Recovery Laboratory, and Geomechanical/Petrology Laboratory. The building also has a Structures Research Laboratory.

The Center of Innovation for Flow through Porous Media (COIFPM) at the University of Wyoming is seeking multiple highly motivated researchers at all level of experience to join its computational research branch located in Fort Collins, Colorado. Our computational team is focused on developing state-of-the-art Digital Rock Technology (DRT) software platforms designed to reconstruct digital porous media from multi-resolution images and model multiphase flow and transport at the pore scale. The goal of this initiative is to bridge the gap between academic research and the needs of various industries for reliable predictions of complex flow behavior in disordered porous media. To this end, we strive to develop massively parallelized, GPU-accelerated, and machine-learning-supported DRT platforms that facilitate pore-scale multiphase flow simulations on previously unattainable domain sizes. Successful candidates will be expected to integrate their skill sets into the DRT workflow. This...
