Offre de Post-doc 2018

Simulation and modelling of shear-thickening suspensions

published on

We have an opening for a 18-month postdoctoral researcher, starting from February 2019, to work on the simulation and modelling of shear-thickening suspensions in Université Grenoble-Alpes, Grenoble, France. The work will be centered on understanding the emergence of instabilities and on modeling the transient interplay between dilation and pore pressure feedback as shear thickening occurs.

The position is funded by the ANR grant "ScienceFriction" led by B. Metzger (IUSTI, Marseille), which combines experimental, numerical and theoretical approaches to the rheology of shear thickening, with a focus on transient phenomena and flow instabilities in close collaboration with H. Lhuissier, and Y. Forterre at IUSTI in Marseille, and M. Wyart at EPFL in Lausanne.
The succesful candidate will work with Romain Mari within the broader Statistical Physics and Modelling group at LIPhy.

Candidates should have a recent PhD (obtained after January 2017) and have a strong background in physics, ideally in numerical simulation and/or theory of soft materials.

Application consists of a CV, a cover letter, and 2 recommendation letters, and should exclusively be made via CNRS Portail emploi before November 5, 2018.
