Open post-doc position for 2010

Progetto ANR Statocean

-Statistical mechanics
This project aims at applying and developing tools of statistical physics for the study of the statistics of the large scales of geophysical flows. Even if they are out of equilibrium, we will consider in a first part the interest of the equilibrium Robert-Sommeria-Miller theory, in order to explain partly the self-organization of these flows. This equilibrium approach is an essential first step but is necessarily limited. It will be complemented by the development and the use in this context of the most modern tools of out of equilibrium statistical physics; for
instance the large deviation theory applied to dynamical quantities or on a longer term the history thermodynamics (Ruelle formalism, initially developed for deterministic systems, but now generalized to stochastic processes).

Foundation Sciences Mathématiques de Paris

The Foundation Sciences Mathématiques de Paris offers fifteen (15) post-doctoral positions in mathematics and in computer science. These positions last one year (renewable once) and are to be filled as from October 1st, 2010, in the research laboratories affiliated to the Foundation.

-Eligibility criteria
Positions are open to holders of a doctorate in mathematics or computer science, obtained in France or in a foreign country before October 1st, 2010. Those who defended their doctorate in one of the affiliated laboratories cannot apply. Offers are not theme-based, and all mathematical disciplines are welcome. The selection will be based on excellence in scientific accomplishment.

-Work contract conditions of the recruited post-docs
Each post-doctoral fellow will perceive a net salary of ¤ 2,500.00 per month and thus benefit from health insurance and social coverage.
(S)he will participate in the scientific activities of his/her laboratory, in particular in seminars and working groups.
