Workshop on multiple scattering and localization of light

A workshop on multiple scattering and localization of light  will take place in Grenoble (France) on November 22, 2018 in the amphitheater of the Maison des Magisteres located on the CNRS campus in Grenoble (see the map here: The workshop is organized by Igor Sokolov and Sergey Skipetrov and is sponsored by the GdR COMPLEXE. See  here for the preliminary program (subjects of talks likely to change) and more details.

Postdoc position

1+1+1 years, salary: $45,000-$50,000 per annum, depending on skills and experience.
Applications are invited for the above post to work with Prof. Tsampikos Kottos (Wesleyan University) on a project entitled ”Advanced Symmetry Concepts and their Violation in Composite Photonic Structures”. The project will advance the notion of spatiotemporal symmetries in photonic structures for the development of a new generation of non-reciprocal devices (isolators, circulators) and power/fluence limiters (i.e. optical — up to microwave — filters that protect sensitive sensors from high-power/fluence incident radiation). A good knowledge of transport theory and theoretical/computational wave modelling is essential. In addition, a background in more than one of the following techniques is highly desirable: Landauer/Buttiker scattering formalism, transfer matrix formalism, Floquet scattering theory, COMSOL multiphysics. Candidates should be confident, organised, have good communication skills and enjoy working as part of a team as well as independently. The successful candidate will be expected to mentor younger co-workers, contribute to the publication of scientific papers, and to their dissemination at conferences.

Postdoc position

Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in statistical physics,disordered systems, random matrices, non-equilibrium quantum or classical physics at LPTMS (University- Paris-Sud-Orsay) and LPT-ENS (ENS Paris).
