We have a postdoc opening in the area of electro-active materials and
structures with a combined focus on experiments and simulations. The project
aims at designing and probing experimentally novel synthetic composite systems
that are capable to adapt shape in response to different external stimuli
(notably mechanical and electrical).
Your Profile : Candidates should have recently obtained or are about to
receive a Ph.D. in Mechanical/Civil/Materials Engineering, or in Physics. The
research is expected to involve a combination of laboratory work and FE
modelling. Candidates with an affinity for collaborative work at the interface
between experiments and simulations are strongly encouraged to apply. Good
communication skills (both oral and written) in English are also necessary.
Your main tasks : You will design (by means of FE simulations),
fabricate (via 3D-printing) and test experimentally electroactive composite
structures with the goal of exploring shape programmability in response to
external electro-mechanical stimuli.
We offer : You will join a diverse research team with interdisciplinary
expertise in experimental, computational and theoretical mechanics. You will
be hosted at the GeePs at CentraleSupelec and will be supervised by Prof.
Laurent Daniel (GeePS, CentraleSupelec), Dr. Gabriella Tarantino
(SP2M-ICMMO, Université Paris-Saclay) and Dr. Kostas Danas (LMS, Ecole
Funding : This project is funded by the LabEx LaSIPS
(ANR-10-LABX-0032-LaSIPS) managed by the French National Research Agency
under the "Investissements d'avenir" program (ANR-11-IDEX-0003). Gross
salary (depending on experience): 2800 - 3000 €/month.
Starting date : negotiable, between June and October 2021.
Duration : 12-14 months.
Application material : Applications should include: (i) a cover letter,
(ii) a CV including a publication list (please highlight the two most
relevant publications) and (iii) the contact information of 2 referees. The
application dossier should be sent to:
Prof. Laurent Daniel email@example.com
Dr. Gabriella Tarantino firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. Kostas Danas email@example.com
Contact : Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to contact Dr.
Gabriella Tarantino for further information.
