PostDoc Position at Newcastle University 

from Graeme Sarson, Newcastle, UK

Dear colleagues,

We are looking to recruit a postdoc to work with Dr Céline Guervilly and Dr Graeme Sarson on a STFC-funded project on the dynamics of stably-stratified layers in planetary cores. The project concerns double-diffusive convection and will incorporate the effects of rotation, spherical geometry and magnetic fields. The goal is to explain how a stably-stratified layer located at the top of the core shapes the magnetic field observed at the surface of the planet. The position is based at Newcastle University and is funded for three years with a flexible start date.

Applications close 5th April 2022. Further details can be found at:

For informal enquiries, please contact Dr Céline Guervilly (

Best wishes,

Céline and Graeme

Call for proposals for IUTAM Symposia and Summer Schools 2024/2025

from Henryk Petryk, Secretary-General of IUTAM

To: Members and Observers of the IUTAM General Assembly

Dear Colleagues,

As you know from my circular correspondence, the call for proposals for
IUTAM Symposia and Summer Schools to be held in 2024 or 2025 is open,
with the deadline for submissions being 31 March 2022. No extensions of
the deadline are planned. Further details of the call are provided in my
email below.

Symposia and Summer Schools are one of IUTAM’s major areas of activity
and means of fulfilling the Union’s goal of promoting the development of
mechanics. It is of utmost importance that IUTAM remain the organizer of
regular scientific meetings on cutting-edge topics in mechanics.
Therefore, I would like to kindly ask you as the Representatives of
Adhering and Affiliated Organizations of IUTAM to help spread
information about the present call for proposals. Your help in
encouraging top researchers in your community to submit high-quality
Symposia/Summer Schools proposals would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely yours,
Henryk Petryk
Secretary-General of IUTAM
