Post-doctoral position at the LOG, Laboratory of Oceanology and Geosciences, Wimereux, France

12 months, beginning early 2019

Turbulence-plankton coupling: experimental and in situ measurements and analysis

Supervisor: François Schmitt;

The position is located at University of Lille, 28 avenue Foch, 62930 Wimereux, France

It will be funded by the project MARCO (

Final date for application: Feb. 2019 (position filled as soon as a good candidate is found)

Gross salary: about 2500 €/month.

To apply, send a full CV and a motivation letter.

Job description:

The objective is to study the turbulence-zooplankton interactions through two approaches:

(1) Laboratory experiment. The objective is to build a system producing turbulence in a small volume, and to film the copepods (crustacean zooplankters) using 2 available high speed cameras (Phantom Miro), in order to register the trajectories. Analysis of the trajectory statistics (including velocity, acceleration) will be done in relation with the turbulence properties.

(2) In situ observations of turbulence-plankton interactions. The in situ observations will be recorded using a high resolution echo sounder (Signature 1000 from Nortek) which records current profile together with zooplankton particles. The deployment will be done in the English Channel close to the laboratory location, in the shore zone and in deeper waters. Analysis of the data in different conditions will help to understand the complex interactions between turbulence and zooplankton dynamics.

Knowledge in turbulence and data analysis, and experimental skills are requested.

Post-Doctoral position - Consideration of sub-mesoscale structural dynamics in the modeling of continuous media of biomimetic micro-objects in flow
Our current research focuses on the study of dynamics of soft (deformable) particles under microfluidic flows, i.e. micro-bags filled with a more or less viscous liquid and whose behavior is driven by the richness of its membrane mechanics. It is a very active field of research...
