A postdoc position is open at the Interdisciplinary Research Institute of
Grenoble (https: // www. cea.fr/drf/Irig), a research institute which depends
on both the CEA and of the Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA). This position is
offered in the framework of the EU-funded Eco2Lib project
(https: // www. eco2lib.eu/) dedicated to the development of Si-based lithium-
ion batteries with better endurance and improved sustainability.
Our objective is to understand the ageing mechanisms of composite electrodes
by combining various advanced characterization techniques: electrochemical
measurements, electron microscopy and spectroscopy analysis, NMR, and in situ
and operando x-ray and neutrons scattering experiment. In the small team
dedicated to this project, the postdoc will be in charge of the structural
characterizations by (S)TEM (imagery, EELS and EDX spectroscopies) and
FIB-SEM nano-tomography. He/she is expected to interact strongly with other
characterisation teams (RMN, ex situ and operando scattering techniques), as
well as with the people in charge of modelling and simulation. The objective
will be to provide a comprehensive picture of structural and electrochemical
evolutions of Si-based electrodes, to quantify the impact of
lithiation/delithiation processes, and to follow the SEI formation and
evolution. This will be done on model materials as well as on commercial
The postdoc will be hosted in the MEM laboratory (Laboratory for Modeling and
Exploration of Materials, https: // www. mem-lab.fr/en) of the IRIG institute.
Our lab is part of the CEA-Grenoble nanocharacterization platform (PFNC),
which gives us access to a wide range of state-of-the-art facilities such as 5
TEMs (including two ThermoFisher Titan corrected microscopes), 5 SEMs and 3
dual-beam FIBs (including a two Zeiss Crossbeam 550), as well as a lab
dedicated to sample preparation. Our activity is mainly dedicated to nanoscale
research (physics and chemistry of materials up to the atomic scale) using
advanced instrumentation. Our laboratory is located in the “Polygone
Scientifique” (https: // en.wikipedia.org12/wiki/PolygoneScientifique), near
the city centre of Grenoble, which offers an exceptional working environment
as well as a very good quality of life, in the heart of the French Alps.
Submit your application via email, including a motivation letter (with a
brief summary of previous research activities), your CV and two references or
PhD in physics, chemistry, materials science or equivalent
Expertise in electron microscopy and associated spectroscopy techniques
Knowledge on focused ion beam microscopy and/or on the analysis of
materials for energy storage would be appreciated
The candidate must be motivated to work in a multidisciplinary project,
and interact with the electrochemists, chemists and physicists of IRIG, as
well as with our European academic and industrial partners.
