Postdoc position: Quantum vortices and inertial waves in rotating superfluid helium

Du 1 septembre 2024 au 31 août 2026

Site actualite
 Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur, Nice.
Contacts : Giorgio Krstulovic (

We are looking a postdoctoral researcher to work on the dynamics of quantum vortices in rotating superfluid helium in the framework the ANR QuantumVIW by joining the group in Nice. The QuantumVIW project aims at providing numerical and theoretical support to the experiment CryoLEM at LEGI Grenoble. This unique experiment is able to produce and visualise in real time a stable vortex lattice in rotating superfluid helium. The successful applicant is expected to perform numerical simulations of the self-consistent model FOUCAULT (and other related superfluid models), to develop analytical theories and strongly interact with all partners of the ANR QuantumVIW

Applicants should have good theoretical understanding of fluid dynamics, turbulence and, ideally, some knowledge on superfluid vortex dynamics. Experience in high-performance computing (HPC) will be appreciated. Fluent written and oral English is essential.
