Post-doc Position in Low Frequency Cryogenic Seismic Isolation at the University of Liège

The deadline for submission is January 15th 2020.

The position is for a 3 year term, starting April 1st 2020.

The Precision Mechatronics Laboratory (PML), hosted in Université Libre de Bruxelles and University of Liège, invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in electromechanical engineering.

PML, led by prof. Christophe Collette, is conducting researches in active control of vibrations for several challenging applications including future particle colliders, deployable space telescopes, aerospace structures and light sources. Located at the heart of Europe, PML forms an exciting and multidisciplinary environment, ideal for cross-fertilization of novel ideas. The position will be focused on developing an active seismic isolation system for decoupling a large cryogenic mirror from ground motion at low frequency. This ambitious project will be conducted in close collaboration with a large consortium of universities and research institutes, with the ambition to validate experimentally key technologies for third generation gravitational wave detectors.

PML focuses of precision control of structures like gravitational wave detectors, satellites, deployable space telescopes, aerospace structures and light sources. The diversity of challenging applications forms an exciting and multidisciplinary environment, ideal for the cross-fertilization of novel ideas.

Applications should be sent directly to Prof. Collette (christophe.collette@uliege.be) and should contain:

  • Cover letter
  • List of publications
  • Detailed curriculum vitae
  • Name, affiliation and email address of three referees

For more information, please contact Prof. Collette.
