Post-doctoral position, Wave Imaging (WIMAG) project, Université Côte d’Azur, France

WIMAG (Wave Imaging) is an interdisciplinary project gathering several laboratories from the University Côte d’Azur and is funded by the IDEX – UCA JEDI (

Wave imaging deals with the identification and control of a variety of systems whose characteristics (physical, biological or physiological) are retrieved from the interaction between an object or a set of objects and a wave (mechanical, seismic, electromagnetic). Lying at the frontier between fundamental and applied research, this topic concerns a wide range of fields, including medicine, telecommunications, environment, earth and planetary science, material sciences, transportation, defense and security. Enhancing the performance of wave imaging devices is a key factor in the improvement of our understanding and command of many specific phenomena in the above-mentioned areas. However, due to their increased complexity, significant advances are required in the modelling, analysis, computer-aided design, optimization and manufacturing of such devices.

We are looking for a post-doctoral researcher wishing to work in the stimulating research environment offered by the UCA campus in the technopole of Sophia-Antipolis where most of the partners of the project are located. The ideal candidate will have completed a PhD thesis in one of the relevant research topics for the project and have skills in one of the following fields: inverse problems, numerical methods for partial differential equations, mathematical and physical modelling, numerical optimization, data assimilation, optimal control. The postdoctoral position is available for a period of one year with a 2200€ net salary per month.

The applications for this position (a detailed resume, cover letter, two references letters) are to be sent to Victorita Dolean ( before March 1st 2017​.
