IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Ifremer seeks for its Brittany's center an Researcher in Hydrodynamics, France
Ifremer, the French Research Institute for Exploitation of the Sea, is an internationally recognized leader in marine sciences, pushing the frontiers of knowledge of the oceans and their resources, and monitoring marine and coastal environments for the sustainable development of marine activities.

Within the RDT unit, the LCSM laboratory contributes to the improvement of the knowledge in fluid / structure interaction and induced structural behaviour.

The researcher will be under the responsibility of the head of the laboratory. He / she will be in relationship with the teams in charge of the test basins of Brest (wave tank) and Boulogne / mer (wave and current tank).

Main tasks :

He / she will contribute to the research activities combining experimental and numerical modelling in the context of national and international projects for the development of marine structures to exploit ocean resources and hydrodynamic issues in general.

Main activities :

- He / she contributes to the definition and implementation of hydrodynamic experiments in the ocean engineering basin, and to the analysis and exploitation of the results;
- He / she models the fluid / structure interactions and the induced behaviour through tank tests, analysis of in situ measurements and numerical simulations for the evaluation of the hydrodynamic loads on the structures and their dynamic response, using linear and non-linear approaches,
- He / she contributes to external relations, to the enhancement of the basin actions and development of new measurement systems and test protocols,
- He / she participates in the daily operation of the laboratory (maintenance, developments ...);
- He / she conducts his / her work in collaboration with universities, particularly in the context of the cluster of excellence 'LabexMer' (axis 7 « Sea motions and interactions with marine structures »), with laboratories of universities, national and international research centres,
- He / she participates in the supervision of PhD students and in the valorisation of the research through publication.
