PhD positions available in two Marie Curie programs to begin at CERFACS in 2017 on combustion instabilities

18 May 2017

CERFACS has won two Marie Curie (ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions) projects on instabilities in combustion systems: the first one MAGISTER will focus on machine learning methods for combustion instabilities and is coordinated by Un. Twente (Netherlands) while the second one (ANNULIGHT) will target annular chambers found in real gas turbines and is coordinated by NTNY (Norway). These two high visibility programs will allow to hire three PhD students who will integrate a very complete formation project based on PhD tutoring at CERFACS, strong relations with industry (SIEMENS, KLM, SAFRAN HELICOPTER ENGINES, SAFRAN AIRCRAFT ENGINES, GENERAL ELECTRIC, ANSALDO, ROLLS ROYCE) and multiple secondments at partners laboratories (CAMBRIDGE, TWENTE, CENTRALESUPELEC, KARLSRUHE INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, TU BERLIN, TU MUNCHEN, ETH ZURICH, NTNY, MINES DE PARIS, SAFRAN TECH). Applications can be sent to poinsot@cerfacs.fr, cuenot@cerfacs.fr, lgicquel@cerfacs.fr.

One Cerfacs’ proposal accepted in PRACE 15th call

superadmin |  4 December 2017

This study focuses on Hall-effect thrusters, which were first invented in the 1960s. Although such systems have been extensively studied, the detailed physics of the magnetized plasmas in these thrusters is very complex and several plasma processes that have direct influence on the thruster...Read more


CECI Contribution to CNRS’ “Petit Illustré” on Complex Systems (CNRS Edition)

ROGEL |  12 October 2017

CECI (Cerfacs, CNRS) and IMFT are both working on numerical modelling of the processes causing river flooding and their uncertainties. A common contribution on this subject, signed by Sophie Ricci and Hélène Roux, appears in Vol. 34 of the "Petit Illustré" collection, edited by CNRS.Read more
