  • 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 Polytechnique).

    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
  • Dr. Gabriella Tarantino
  • Dr. Kostas Danas
  • Contact : Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to contact Dr. Gabriella Tarantino for further information.
