Post-doctoral position on parametric shape
optimization in hydraulic

The Saint-Venant Hydraulics Laboratory is a joint research laboratory between Ecole des
Ponts ParisTech (ENPC), Electricité de France R&D (EDF R&D) and Cerema. This gives it a
unique position in the field of applied fluid mechanics, at the interface between academy
and industry.
The Saint-Venant Hydraulics Laboratory seeks to fill a 18 month post-doctoral position in the
fields of parametric shape optimization in application of hydraulic problems:

• Structure. Shifting, resizing and rotating river and coastal protection structures to
optimize selected flow variables to a desired stable state;

• Zone. Identifying optimum zones to maximize sustainability and minimize costs.

The aim of this post-doctoral position is to provide an efficient numerical tool based on
TELEMAC system (widely used open-source code www.opentelemac.org) able to deliver
optimal shape design for hydraulic engineering applications. The purpose of the present
work is to develop methods to solve the optimization problem based on derivative-free and
gradient algorithms. These algorithms will be tested on a simplified configuration and then
on industrial cases.

Successful applicants should, by the start of the appointment, have a Ph.D., or equivalent
experience in Applied Mathematics, Applied Physics, Computer Sciences or Mechanical/Civil
Engineering. The use and development of high performance numerical computing are highly
desirable. The researcher will be employed by Ecole des Ponts ParisTech (ENPC). Salary and
benefits will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

How to apply:

Applicants should send to Dr. Riadh Ata and Dr. Cedric Goeury (see e-mail addresses below):
a cover letter and CV. All applications completed by March 31st, 2016 will receive full
consideration, but candidates are urged to submit all required material as soon as possible.
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
