The postdoctoral researcher will be part of the transversal research axis “Metamaterials” at LAUM leaded by Dr. Vicent Romero-García. This team develops and manages the research on acoustic wave propagation in acoustic metamaterial at LAUM.
He/she will work under the supervision of Dr. Vicent Romero-García and Dr. Jean Philippe Groby within the framework of the Hypermeta project which aims at understanding, manufacturing and characterizing advanced materials based on correlated disorder with wave properties coming from the structure of the material. In particular, properly engineered acoustic metamaterials with correlated disorder will be developed for design of multifunctional materials. Hypermeta is a twofold project covering both theoretical and experimental aspects. Different concepts, clearly in rupture with existing ones, will be efficiently employed to develop such advanced materials. Hypermeta is research project (Étoiles Montantes) funded by Région Pays de la Loire.


During this postdoc, theoretical tools will be developed to control the scattering of a many resonant particle configuration based on both multiple scattering theory and numerical simulations. The scattering of such systems, by using single scattering approximation can be controlled by optimizing the position of the scatterers. The goal of this post-doc is to design a discrete system for the broadband and omnidirectional cloaking.
The obtained results should be disseminated via the publication of one or more individual and/or joint articles on the analyses of the data collected during the project.


• Sound knowledge of the techniques applied in the field, ideally with experience in multiple scattering theory
• Language skills: Fluent English and/or French, both written and spoken are required
• Writing skills, ability to formulate a scientific project, and to publish and promote their research
• Aptitude for working in a team on multi-disciplinary projects
• Ability to work while respecting rules and procedures
• Ability to work independently, organizational ability and ability to account for one's own actions
• Candidates must hold a doctorate in a Acoustics, Physics, Mechanical engineering or equivalent field and proven research skills evidenced by at least two publication as the first/joint first or second author relating to the subject or activities of the project

Work Context

The postdoc will be hosted by Laboratorie d'Acoustique de l'Université du Mans (LAUM), a joint research unit between the Le Mans Université and CNRS, UMR 6613 (section 9, Institut des sciences de l'ingénierie et des systèmes, INSIS). LAUM has about 160 employees including 60 full-time researchers and professors-researchers. It is a leading institution in Acoustics, with a unique ensemble of equipment for physical acoustics. It is associated with CNRS, the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) in France.

Constraints and risks

Short periods of travel within France and abroad should be expected for conference and collaborations. Travels will be fund by the project.
