Description

  • Organisation/Company: IMT Nord Europe
  • Research Field: Technology › Energy technology
  • Researcher Profile: First Stage Researcher (R1) Recognised Researcher (R2) Established Researcher (R3) Leading Researcher (R4)
  • Application Deadline: 01/09/2022 00:00 - Europe/Brussels
  • Location: France › DOUAI
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Offer Starting Date: 01/10/2022
  • BRIEF:

    A postdoc position is offered at the Center for Energy and Environment (CERI EE) of Institute Mines Telecom Nord Europe. In the framework of our work on organic gas sensors, we are looking for a candidate with a PhD in Material Science with a strong scientific expertise on conductive polymers and their physico-chemical analysis to explore properties/performances relationships. Knowledge on sensors, physics of conductive polymer, synthesis or processing of polymer blends are welcome. Candidate must be fluent in English with good writing/communication skills.

    The CERI EE currently develops industry-oriented research activities on the manufacturing of gas sensors (amonia, hydrogen sulfide, formaldehyde and others) for various applications linked to outdoor and indoor air quality monitoring. A specific attention is paid to sensing performances (detection limit, sensitivity, selectivity, etc…) in controlled environments and real situations. The actual technology is based on conductive polymers such as polyaniline (PANI) that display strong variations of its intrinsic resistivity with the concentation of different target gases.

    In order to facilitate the mass production of those devices, the actual formulations based on carcinogenic solvant need to be changed. The modification of the solution interogates the role of each component. In this context, the post-doc will have to i) elucidate the role of the dopant and ii) the influence of the solvant in the detection mecanims and in the performances of gas sensors.

    MISSIONS

    - Formulate or synthetize various polyaniline composites

    - Develop experimental strategy to clarify the impact of the nature of dopant and solvant in the detection of gas

    - Model gas solid interaction at the origin of the sensors response

    - Optimize the formulation of the conductive polymers used as sensitive materials

    Offer Requirements Specific Requirements

    REQUIRED PROFILE:

    The candidate must hold a PhD degree in the field of materials chemistry/physics or materials engineering. The successful candidate must have strong scientific background and technical skills, allowing her/him to carry out the aforementioned missions.

    She/He should :

  • have solid scientific and technological background and significant experience in conductive polymer synthesis/formulation and characterization. would be appreciated.
  • Knowledge on physics of conductive polymers, of ink formulation for various printing processes, micro/nanostructuring, organic electronics, would be appreciated.
  • have very good communication and teamwork skills.
  • have a good command of English (oral and written)
  • Contact Information
