This project aims at developing solid theoretical foundations for wave turbulence systems and modelling experiments in wave turbulence performed in laboratory by partners of this collaboration.


The applicant will perform large-scale numerical simulations of different wave systems and confront numerical and theoretical results coming from weak wave turbulence theory. Depending on the candidate profile, kinetic wave equations will also be studied numerically or theoretically.


Applicants should have a good theoretical knowledge in fluid dynamics, turbulence, nonlinear waves and/or wave turbulence. Solid experience in numerical modelling of partial differential equations arising in fluid dynamics, turbulence and theory of nonlinear waves is required. Some experience on high-performance computing (HPC) and/or and use of GPUs will be appreciated.

Work Context

The work will be carried out within the framework of the Simons Foundation international collaboration project “Wave Turbulence” ( The successful applicant will join the team in Nice led by Sergey Nazarenko (Institut de Physics de Nice) and Giorgio Krstulovic (Laboratoire J.L. Lagrange). The successful applicant will also take advantage of experts in classical and quantum turbulence, magnethodrodynamics, plasmas, particle transport, applied mathematics and computational fluid dynamics of both labs. Thanks to the Simons Foundation, the successful applicant will be involved in an intense collaboration with theoretical, mathematical and experimental groups in France, USA, Italy, Brazil and Russia.
