Postdoctoral Position in Acoustic Metamaterials at Le Mans (France)

Posted on Feb 8, 2019 in Early Careers Group, Job Opportunities in Acoustics

A postdoctoral position is available at the Laboratoire d’Acoustique de l’Université du Mans (LAUM). The post-doc will be part of the transversal research axis “Metamaterials” at LAUM lead by Dr. Vicent Romero-García. This team develops and manages the research on acoustic wave propagation in acoustic metamaterial at LAUM. She/He will work under the supervision of Vicent Romero-García and Jean Philippe Groby within the framework of the Hypermeta project which aims at understanding, manufacturing and characterizing advanced materials based on correlated disorder with wave properties coming from the structure of the material. Hypermeta is a twofold project covering both theoretical and experimental aspects. Different concepts, clearly in rupture with existing ones, will be efficiently employed to develop such advanced materials. Hypermeta is research project (Étoiles Montantes) funded by Région Pays de la Loire.

During this postdoc, theoretical tools will be developed to control the scattering of a many resonant particle configuration based on both multiple scattering theory and numerical simulations. The scattering of such systems, by using single scattering approximation can be controlled by optimizing the position of the scatterers. The goal of this post-doc is to design a discrete system for the broadband and omnidirectional cloaking. The obtained results should be disseminated via the publication of one or more individual and/or joint articles on the analyses of the data collected during the project.
