Thank you for your interest in applying to VSRP internships at KAUST.
We are happy to share that our in-person internship program has restarted!
However, due to the pandemic, all VSRP applicants applying for in-person internship, must obtain and show proof of full vaccination (vaccine certificates for COVID 19) with one of the following vaccines to be processed as VSRP interns: 2 doses of Pfizer BioNTech, 2 doses of Oxford AstraZeneca, 2 doses of Moderna,1 dose of Johnson and Johnson’s Janssen, 2 Doses of Sinopharm vaccine and one dose of Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, or Janssen, or 2 Doses of Sinovac vaccine and one dose of Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, or Janssen.
We are continuing to offer Remote/Virtual internship. If you are interested in a Remote VSRP internship, please check our “Internship page” and apply to the project of your choice. You may upload a blank page in lieu of vaccination proof in your application form, and mention that you are applying for a Remote internship in your Statement of Purpose.
Modeling Fluid Flow and Transport in Porous Media by Physics-driven Simulation Approaches
The Digital Subsurface Flow & Transport Lab (DSFT-Lab) is a cross-discipline team led by Prof. Bicheng Yan KAUST. Currently DSFT focuses on physics-driven and data-driven (deep learning mainly) model development that can simulate multiphase flow in porous media at reservoir scale and pore scale. The goal is to explore the fundamental physics that governs the complex and coupled physics related flow and transport in porous media, and investigate its impact on subsurface fluid flow such as hydrocarbon recovery, geologic carbon sequestration, hydrogen storage and geothermal recovery etc.
DSFT seeks for self-motivated, dedicated and creative STEM-majored students who wants to address challenging energy and environmental related engineering problems.
