PhD scholarship in Porous Materials and Foams Employed in Hearing Aids
Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
The Department of Electrical Engineering and the Centre for Acoustic-Mechanical Microsystems (CAMM) invite highly motivated and talented graduates to apply for a 3-year PhD where you will study porous materials and their application in hearing aids. The mechanical properties of the internal solid structure and the acoustic-mechanical interaction with a fluid determine the behaviour of porous materials when exposed to sound and vibration. Porous materials include foams, fibre materials and woven/unwoven fabrics, and have multiple applications in sound and vibration control. An elastic frame can provide them with mechanical stability when exposed to vibration. In this project you will acquire in-depth understanding of the vibroacoustic behaviour of porous materials used in hearing aids (HAs). You will explore alternative designs, materials, and fabrication techniques that can enhance their performance. Exploration of differences between disordered (normal porous materials) and ordered (acoustic metamaterial) arrangements may become an advanced topics during the project.

Details, qualifications, and online application form are found following the link.

Postdoctoral Researcher
University of Luxembourg
The Ultrafast Condensed Matter Physics Group is looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher who is willing to work on a challenging (experimental) project at the interface between ultrafast nanophotonics, metamaterials and nanomagnetism. The successful candidate will be working at the Department of Physics and Materials Science at the University of Luxembourg at the forefront of ultrafast science.The candidate will carry out experiments to uncover the physical principles that regulate the dynamics of photons and charges in nanostructured metamaterials. By combining time-resolved laser-based spectroscopy techniques and multi-physics finite element methods, the candidate will unveil how to use and shape ultrashort light pulses to excite magnons, i.e. the collective oscillations of spins (the intrinsic angular momenta of electrons), and combine them with the collective motion of electrons in electromagnetically coupled elements tailored from composite materials.
