Electrokinetic transport and remediation of contaminants in groundwater




Greater Copenhagen area

Electrokinetic transport is important in many engineering and environmental applications. This project focuses on electrokinetic (EK) techniques for solute distribution and mobilization in saturated porous media. Such techniques are particularly promising in low-permeability matrices where other methods are typically not effective. The goal is to advance the scientific understanding of charged species transport in porous media as well as to propose, design and optimize EK applications. The project will have both an experimental part, where electrokinetic transport experiments will be carried out, and a modelling component, in which newly developed software will be employed to simulate electrokinetically induced reactive transport.    


The ideal candidate should be curious and interested about subsurface processes, groundwater flow and transport, and remediation techniques.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.

Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
