CISM School on waves, June 19-23, Udine, Italy

Dear colleagues,

From June 19 to 23, 2023, we are organizing a thematic school at CISM (International Center for Mechanical Sciences),, in Udine. This school will deal with recent advances in dynamics of heterogeneous media. The following topics will be presented:

  • high order homogenization,
  • interface correctors,
  • topologically protected interface modes,
  • multistable architectural materials,
  • topological optimization.

They are addressed to PhD students as well as to experienced researchers. The speakers are Guillaume Bal, Rémi Cornaggia, Richard Craster, Dennis Kochmann, Bojan Guzina, Bruno Lombard.

We hope to see you there!

Sincerely yours,Bruno Lombard

Open postdoc position, Hormozi research group, Cornell University, USA

A full-time post-doctoral researcher position is immediately available in the group of Prof. Sarah Hormozi at Cornell University (

The project will involve flows of dense non-Brownian suspensions. Candidates are sought in all technical subdisciplines of soft matter physics with a strong background and publication record in experimental research. The candidate is expected to bring enthusiasm, deep thinking, broad curiosity, and creativity to the project.

Cornell University offers an intellectually stimulating environment with excellent facilities. Incredibly exciting is the opportunity for the candidate to interact with outstanding faculty on campus and scientists at other universities in the areas of soft matter physics and fluid mechanics. The successful candidate will benefit from the ongoing experimental projects at the Hormozi’s lab, research institutes such as the Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility ( and the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source ( and collaborating with scientists in experimental, computational and theoretical physics.

This is expected to be a two-year position, with the second year contingent on project performance and funding.

To apply, please send a CV, names of three references, and up to three representative publications to Prof. Sarah Hormozi ( with the subject “Hormozi Group Postdoc Position.”

Postdoc at LMS, Ecole Polytechnique

Dear all,

we open one year position (with possible prolongation) at Laboratoire de Mécanique des Solides, Ecole Polytechnique Palaiseau.

The job is concerned with kinematic analysis by digital image correlation of X-ray micro-tomography data obtained during in-situ triaxial testing of porous carbonate rocks. The aims are to charcterize localization, pore colapse and formation of compaction bands, for the purpose of underground storage and more particularly CO2 sequestration

The position starts as soon as possible 2023, is financed by the Interdisciplinary Center E4C (Energy for Clamate) and relates to CO2 geological sequestration.

Please, find details bellow:

Measurements of 3D full mechanical fields in porous carbonate rocks by digital image correlation and application to for geological sequestration of CO2

The general topic is concerned with energy transition and more particularly with underground sequestration of carbon dioxide in porous carbonate reservoir rocks.

Carbonate reservoir rocks present pronounced multiscale microstructural heterogeneities, which complicates the modeling of their short term hydro-mechanical behavior and long term integrity.

To understand the mechanical implications of these microstructural heterogeneities we use X-ray microcomputed tomography (Lab and Synchrotron radiation) and DVC (digital volume correlation), aiming to characterize the in situ development of localization patterns and compaction bands in porous carbonates experiencing triaxial loadings.

ACM Symposium on Computational Fabrication (SCF), U. Washington (26-28 October 2022)

Hello Everyone,

We are excited to host the ACM Symposium on Computational Fabrication (SCF) this October 26-28th at the University of Washington (UW) in Seattle. SCF provides a holistic home for new research and developments in the interdisciplinary areas of digital manufacturing and computational design. The meeting provides a venue to discuss cutting-edge results and build cross-domain collaborations and connections. We are excited to bring this venue to the west coast for the first time!

Attendees and presenters have backgrounds in architectural design, computer science, mechanical engineering, human-computer interaction, biology, materials science, robotics, and math. The goal of SCF is to advance the state-of-the-art in computational fabrication via the exchange of new research, discussions, and collaborations and to become the pre-eminent venue for such activities in the burgeoning field of Computational Design and Fabrication.

Please join us! Register here:

Early Bird Closes on Oct 1st.

Postdoc, Laboratoire ISTERRE Grenoble

Pour la fin du projet ANR e-WARNINGS*, nous cherchons un post-doc d’une duré de 18 mois avec un profil traitement du signal, sismologie et/ou sciences des matériaux.

*Early detection of fatigue and intermittent failure using full-field approved Acoustic Emission multiplets
(Détection précoce de la rupture par fatigue ou intermittente via les multiplets acoustiques validés en champ complet)

Suite à la mise en évidence de la détection de signaux d’émission acoustique spécifiques de la propagation de fissures par fatigue (multiplets), dans différents matériaux métalliques, le post doc aura pour but de développer de nouvelles méthodes et algorithmes de détection de ces multiplets, en particulier pour des situations de type industriel caractérisées par des rapports signal/bruit non optimisés et des histoires de chargement plus irrégulières.

Le post-doc se déroulera au Laboratoire ISTERRE Grenoble avec Jérôme Weiss, en collaboration avec la société Mistras Group et Mateis.
