A one year post-doctoral position at the ENS Rennes in diffusion-approximation and stochastic PDEs, Funded by the ANR project ADA and coordinated by Arnaud Debussche.

A 12-month postdoctoral position is available at the ENS Rennes, part of the “Institute de Recherche Mathématique de Rennes” (IRMAR). The ANR ADA project deals with the theory of diffusion-approximation (see for example the book [1] in the finite dimension case) in infinite dimension and convergence of PDEs. The first work in this field [2] shows how to move from a kinetic equation containing an interaction term and a small parameter, with random terms whose correlation length tends to zero, to a stochastic heat equation. The aim of this ANR project is to extend this kind of studies to more complex cases: Boltzmann to stochastic Navier-Stokes or dispersive equations for example. The project also includes a numerical part aiming at developing efficient numerical methods in this framework. The candidate should have a solid background in PDE, in the study of stochastic processes or in numerical analysis. Candidates with double or triple competence will be favoured. The post-doc will start between September 1 and November 1, 2021.

Applications, including a cv with a list of publications, a letter of motivation, and a description (2 pages max) of the research activities, as well as the names of two scientific references, must be sent, by March 15, 2021 at the latest, on the Centre Henri Lebesgue website: https://www.lebesgue.fr/content/post-doc_application Note that a similar position will be available in the fall of 2022 at ENS Lyon, in the UMPA laboratory.
