Postdoc position at IMSc-Chennai on Modelling soft glassy flow from micro to macro scale

A postdoctoral position is available at IMSc Chennai to conduct research related to the mechanical response of soft glassy materials, via a synthesis of microscopic and meso-scale modelling. The position is part of a joint project supported by the Indo-French Centre for the Promotion of Advanced Research/Centre Franco-Indien pour la Promotion de la Recherche Avancée (IFCPAR/CEFIPRA) grant shared by Pinaki Chaudhuri (IMSc, Chennai) and Kirsten Martens (LIPhy, Universite Grenoble Alpes). Within the scope of the project program, exchange visits are also planned for the postdoc researcher. The duration of the position is for two years and the position is available immediately. To obtain further details about the proposed research, please write to, The candidate is expected to have interests broadly in statistical mechanics, soft matter, along with experience in numerical simulations. Applications including a CV, a list of publications, a brief description of past research, should be sent by email to

ATER ESPCI (année 2017-2018)

Non-tenured Lecturer position at ESPCI PARIS for the 2017-2018 academic year

ESPCI, Paris is urgently recruiting a non-tenured Lecturer for the 2017-2018 academic year. The profile includes teaching and research activities. Teaching can be performed in English.

* Teaching activity: Supervision of practical work in C programming (first year of engineering studies), programming with Matlab (2nd year of engineering studies).
The teaching is often structured as a research project involving molecular dynamics or acoustics applications. It is taught in small groups with highly motivated students. Teaching duties are very concentrated in the year and can often be performed within a six week window, leaving the rest of the year free for research. It is pretty light (130h) and does not require much preparation for someone with computer science skills.

* Research can be associated with the Gulliver or Langevin laboratory in the fields of statistical mechanics, hydrodynamics, active matter, elasticity, biophysics, waves.
The laboratory has active theoretical and experimental groups.

Applicants should hold a PhD in physics. A statistical physics background in out of equilibrium physics and/or condensed matter physics is welcome. A good knowledge of programming is a must.

Postdoc in Experimental Fluid Mechanics (Univ. Manchester)

A two-year post-doctoral position in Experimental Fluid Mechanics focused on the transition to disordered front propagation is available in the School of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Manchester with a starting date of 1st January 2018 and an application deadline of 19/08/2017.

Enquiries to Full details and applications on

A postdoctoral Research Associate position is available to conduct experimental research on the instabilities of fluid interfaces in narrow gaps. The research project, Transition to disordered front propagation, is funded by EPSRC. The overall aim is to extend the modern dynamical systems approach, as recently used to develop understanding of the transition to turbulence in shear flows, to help explain the transition to disorder in an entirely different flow: Saffman-Taylor fingering in a Hele-Shaw channel. In shear flow turbulence, a key theoretical concept is the interpretation of localised turbulent puffs as edge states, weakly unstable states with a stable manifold that determines the basin boundary separating initial conditions decaying to laminar flow from those growing to turbulence. The fundamental hypothesis to be investigated in this project is that (known) unstable solutions of the Saffman-Taylor flow are edge states that underlie both the transition from the steadily propagating Saffman-Taylor finger to the experimentally observed complex patterns, and the dynamics of the patterns themselves. The quasi-two-dimensional Saffman-Taylor fingering problem is particularly amenable to experimental investigation because in further contrast to turbulence, the flow is at very low Reynolds number so that nonlinearities only occur at the interface.

You should have, or be working towards, a PhD or equivalent in a relevant area of Physics, Applied Mathematics or Engineering. Expertise in fluid mechanics and stability theory are essential, as well as having demonstrated creative experimental skills in fluids or soft matter research. Knowledge of free surface flows and modern theories of transition to turbulence in shear flows is also desirable. You should be capable of working under your own initiative and leading a small research team, so excellent communication and organisational skills are required.

The University of Manchester values a diverse workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
