12th October 2018 : Postdoc – shear thickening suspensions – Université Grenoble-Alpes

Dear all,

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
 in Laboratoire
Interdisciplinaire de Physique
 ("LIPhy"), affiliated to CNRS and
Université Grenoble-Alpes. Research at LIPhy covers bio-, soft matter,
and statistical physics, among others. It is based in Grenoble, one of
the biggest academic cities in France, in the French Alps.

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 http://bit.ly/2OcXhFw before
*November 5, 2018.*
