Propositions de contrats Post-Doctoral

Le M2P2 recrute, tout au long de l'année, des post-doctorants en CDD (contrats temporaires de chercheur) dans le cadre des projets de recherche du laboratoire.

Le recrutement post-doctoral sur contrat est destiné aux jeunes docteurs pour leur permettre de:

  • réaliser une mobilité dans le cadre de leur formation
  • d'acquérir une expérience complémentaire de recherche
  • se préparer à un recrutement ultérieur dans une entreprise ou dans un laboratoire académique


  • Transition of propagation regime of forest fires

    Labex MEC “Mechanics And Complexity” Post-Doctoral position offer :

    Research project and job description


    This project aims at investigating the transition from plume dominated to wind driven fires. This transition has been characterized in the past based on two dimensional considerations. It is commonly associated with a stiff transition of the convective and radiative heat fluxes ahead of the fire front.

    Using multiphase three dimensional simulations on an equivalent static fire configuration, the objective of this work is to better characterize the transition and it's effect on the convective and radiative heat transfers. Finally, these simulations will be used to draw a map of the dimensionless configuration space {Byram ; CdLAI}. The simulations will be conducted using the solver ForestFireFOAM, an extension of FireFOAM developped at M2P2 to study forest fire propagation.

    Job description:
    The work will be carried at M2P2 with Aymeric Lamorlette, within the TONIC team.

    Essential skills:
    Strong background in scientific computing (C++, specific OpenFOAM object preferred), multiphase flows.
    Proficiency in scientific writing.

    Desired skills:
    FireFOAM, flow-vegetation interaction, combustion
