PostDoc en Géosciences Marines (SHOM, Brest)

Annonce en pdf

Dear Members,

Position length: 18 months
Start date: February 1st, 2021
Location: Brest 29200 (Europe/France/Brittany).

Presentation of the agency:
Shom is the French national hydrographic service. It is appointed to collect and check all the information necessary to ensure maritime navigation’s safety. It is responsible for providing hydrographic and oceanographic support to the French Navy in measuring, describing and forecasting the maritime environment. Shom also supports maritime and coastal public policies by providing expertise in maritime limits and boundaries and integrated coastal management.

The project:
The appointee will participate to the project MELANGE 2020-2022. The acronym MELANGE stands for “Mesure en tEmps-réel des fLux sédimentAires en zoNe côtière à l'aide de GlidErs” which means “Real time measurements of sediment fluxes in coastal zones using gliders”. This project aims at developing operational in situ observation of currents and turbidity (water clarity) by using a glider equipped with acoustic and optical sensors. Within this project, Shom contributes to the data validation (of SeaBird OCR-504 and Nortek AD2CP payload sensors in particular) by comparison with satellite remote sensing of the ocean surface colours, and data obtained from CTD casts and moorings, fitted with similar optical and acoustical sensors.

The vacancy:
Duties will include embarkations on oceanographic research vessels. Two sea surveys of about one week each are planned in this project MELANGE. The main area of study will be the Bay of Biscay. The appointee will also process the data acquired during these sea surveys, under the Shom supervisor’s direction. She/he will exploit the complementarity of in situ measurements, acquired from fixed or mobile platforms, satellite observations, and even outputs from hydrodynamic model simulations. The validation process will require statistics, signal processing or even using information science and technology. The appointee will participate in writing the project final report.
The main collaborations are located in France, in particular with ALSEAMAR and CentralWeb companies both located near Aix-en-Provence and Toulon respectively, and with the CEFREM institute located in Perpignan.

The candidate:
She/he is holding a PhD in marine geoscience with knowledge in computing, signal processing of oceanographic data, including experience in primary production, sediment transport and ocean colour remote sensing.

Required skills:
•        Hydrodynamics, marine optics and satellite remote sensing of ocean colour,
•        Statistics and signal processing of oceanographic data.
•        Teamwork abilities,
•        Responsive and dynamic.

How to apply:
Please send your resume and cover letter by email to “” before November 15th, 2020. The reference of the post is: MELANGE_SEDIM

Looking forward to hearing from you!
Best regards,

7th World Tribology Congress Lyon, September 2021: registration is now open!


Winter school « New Challenges in Turbulence Research VI », Les Houches, February 2021

Dear colleagues

We want to bring to your attention the international winter school « New Challenges in Turbulence Research VI » that will be held at the Ecole de Physiques des Houches from Feb 7th to 12th, 2021:

Since its first edition, the school « New Challenges in Turbulence Research » aims to present in the format of pedagogical and high level lectures some of the recent advances and current questions in turbulence research in various fields. This session will focus on the transition to turbulence, the statistical physics and dynamics of large scales, atmospheric turbulence and Lagrangian turbulence. The school aims at PhD students and young and confirmed scientists seeking to deepen their knowledge in turbulence.

The program and the list of speakers can be found on the school website:

Registrations are open:

Yours sincerely

Postdoc « Microstructure analysis and micromechanics » (Hannover)


Postdoc Mechanics of Slender Structures, Flexible Structures Laboratory, EPFL Switzerland

We have a postdoc opening to be hosted in our fleXLab @ EPFL in the area of the mechanics of slender structures, with a combined focus on experiments and theory. The research will be done in collaboration with, and co-advised by both Pedro Reis (EPFL) and Basile Audoly (CNRS and Ecole Polytechnique, France). The project aims to use dimensional reduction procedures to develop predictive reduced-order descriptions of slender structures (rods, plates, or shells), with complex internal structure.

Further details about this position, including a link to the online application system, can be found at

Your profile: Candidates should have recently obtained or are about to receive a Ph.D. in Physics, or Mechanical/Civil/Aerospace Engineering, or related disciplines. The research is expected to involve a combination of laboratory work and theoretical modeling. Candidates are expected to have an affinity for collaborative work at the experiments-theory interface.

We offer: The successful postdoc will join a vibrant, collaborative, international, and diverse research team with interdisciplinary expertise in experimental, computational, and theoretical mechanics. The focus of research activity at the fleXLab is centered around curiosity-driven research in the general area of physics and mechanics of soft/compliant mechanical structures. The fleXLab is hosted at the Institute of Mechanical Engineering and offers unique state-of-the-art laboratory facilities. The research of Basile Audoly focuses on theoretical mechanics, with a particular interest in nonlinear problems involving the coupling of elasticity and geometry. With Yves Pomeau, he has authored the book « Elasticity and Geometry » (Oxford University Press, 2010). 

More information about both of our research groups, including other active research themes, can be found in the following links: and

The following video of a combined talk (EML Webinar on July 15th) provides a series of examples of the collaborative work that we have done on related topics over the past few years:

Opportunities for involvement in the teaching of mechanics-related classes will be provided both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  

Applications received by September 30th, 2020, will receive equal consideration and should include: (i) Cover letter, (ii) CV, (iii) Three contacts for references, and (iv) Copy of most significant publication to date. The expected start date is February 1st, 2021.

Warm regards,

Pedro Reis (EPFL) and Basile Audoly (Ecole Polytechnique)
