    The position is open to all research areas present within Irmar or LMJL. It does not include an obligation to teach.

    The net salary will be 2 225 Euros per month.


    The application for 2015-2016 is now open.

    Sending application: between the 15th of December 2014 and the 31st of March 2015.

    The 12-month positions are expected to begin on September 1st or October 1st, 2015.


    Candidates must have completed a PhD in mathematics, or equivalent, at the date of taking office. The candidate must submit an original research project including a collaboration with one or more local researcher (s) of Irmar or LMJL.

    Applicants must complete the online form where they have to join the following documents:

    • CV describing the candidate's profile and professional experience (list of publications, research topics, activities)
    • Cover letter including research areas
    • At least two letters of recommendation, including one from the local researcher involved in the project
    (these letters can be uploaded by the applicant or directly sent by the recommending persons at the email address indicated in the second page of the online form)


    The selection will be carried by the Lebesgue Scientific Committee.

  • Meeting - Mathematical physics
    Feb 2, 2015 to Feb 6, 2015

    Nantes, from February 2nd to February 6th

    The aim of the GDR dynqua is to structure the community of reaserchers interested in the theoretical and mathematical aspects of quantum mechanics. This is also one of the themes developped in the ANR NOSEVOL project. The present common conference, opening the thematic semester "PDEs and large time behavior", is an occasion to give a special enlightening to this very active domain.

    The conferences will take place at Amphi Pasteur of the Campus sciences of the University of Nantes from Monday 2nd of February at 2pm to Friday 6th at midday (see the information page).

  • Workshop - Long time dynamics and regularity for hydrodynamical systems
    Mar 11, 2015 to Mar 13, 2015

    Nantes, from March 11th to March 13th

    Organization board: Frédéric Bernicot, Vincent Duchêne

    Although the equations for fluid motion are hundreds of years old, and despite a strong and continuous interest of the scientific community in their study, much remains to be understood. This is not saying that no progress has been made! On the contrary, the study of hydrodynamical systems is a good example of a field where the development of new mathematical tools have accompanied (and sometimes have been developped for) a deeper comprehension of the multiple and complex phenomena hiding behind these seemingly simple sets of equations.

    As for our workshop, the participants will be several of the main contributors to the following topics:

    • Local/Global well-posedness results for (nonlinear) PDEs modeling hydrodynamical systems

    • Local/Global inviscid limit

    • Stability and instability of nonlinear waves

    • Mathematical analysis of free-surface fluids

    The Registration webpage will be open until February 15.

    A precise schedule will be updated as soon as possible, at the moment the scientific program is planned to begin on March 11 at 11h00 a.m.

Summer School on KPZ Equation and Rough Paths


Integrable probability and the KPZ equation

Dates: Monday 3 to Friday 7 June 2013
Location: Rennes
Contact: A. Debussche, M. Gradinaru


This summer school will be mainly devoted to three courses by Ivan Corwin and Martin Hairer on Khardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) equation and Peter Friz on rough paths. Several others talks will present the most recent advances on these topics.

Guiding principle in the courses will be to present the theory of rough paths and recent work by Martin Hairer who managed to solve rigorously the KPZ equation using this theory among other ones. In conjunction with recent breakthroughs on the exact statistics of the KPZ equation (the topic of Ivan Corwin's mini-course), these results will likely validate a number of predictions in the physics literature in which this equation is often seen as a universal limit. The method developed by Martin Hairer will also allow progresses on other very singular equations.
