Recent studies have revealed the topological origin of peculiar geophysical waves. It shows a surprising connection with a variety of other physical systems, and bring new light on the theory of geophysical flows. The aim of this postdoc position will be to demonstrate that topology shapes tidal flows at planetary scale, to provide new theoretical understanding of those effects, and numerical illustration of the phenomena.


-Performing simulations of tidal waves showing manifestation of peculiar topological properties at planetary scale.
-Developing the theory of non-Hermitian topological waves in fluids.


We are looking for a candidate specialist of geophysical fluid dynamics, with skills for numerical modeling in fluids, a strong background in theoretical physics, and a taste for interactions between different fields of research. Candidates with prior work on tides will be favored.

Work Context

The postdoc fellow will be hosted by the laboratoire de Physique at ENS de Lyon, and will be part of an ongoing collaboration on topological fluid waves involving different team of the laboratory, funded by an ANR Grant. The postdoc will interact with Pierre Delpalce from the condensed matter group and Antoine Venaille from the Hydrodynamics group.
