Description of the project 

This post-doctoral fellowship funded by the Institute of Acoustics - Graduate School (Ecole Universitaire de Recherche) aims at attracting young researchers to the Laboratoire d'Acoustique de l'Université du Mans (LAUM) to conduct research and foster their progression towards scientific independence. The Laboratoire d'Acoustique de l'Université du Mans (LAUM), is a joint research unit between Le Mans University and the CNRS, UMR 6613 (section 9, Institute of Engineering Sciences and Systems, INSIS). It is the "research" entity of the Ecole Universitaire de Recherche "Institut d’Acoustique - Graduate School ». The LAUM has about 160 employees including 60 full-time researchers and teacher-researchers. It is a leading institution in Acoustics, with a unique set of equipment for general acoustics. 

The work will take place at the Laboratoire d’Acoustique de l’Université du Mans (UMR CNRS 6613), part of the Institut d’Acoustique - Graduate School, a vibrant place for research on acoustics and waves, with the possibility of  interacting with several teams and researchers. Access to facilities present in LAUM for numerical simulations will be granted. 

Planning research projet 

The research work will extend over a period of 12 to 18 months starting in the fall. A more detailed schedule will be set up according to the profiles and projects submitted. The first months will be devoted to the definition and the implementation of experimental methods allowing the acquisition of results to answer the scientific problematic of the project. Then, the work of the candidate will turn to the writing of articles for publication in reference journals in acoustics and participation in one or more conferences in order to present the work done in the project.
