  • Organisation/Company: Sorbonne Université
  • Research Field: Physics › Solid state physics
  • Researcher Profile: First Stage Researcher (R1)
  • Application Deadline: 15/08/2021 12:00 - Europe/London
  • Location: France › Paris
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Hours Per Week: 35
  • Offer Starting Date: 15/09/2021
  • The « Institut de Minéralogie et de Physique des Milieux Condensés » (Sorbonne Université, Paris, France) seeks applications for a postdoctoral/engineer position in the field of high pressure physics. The candidate is expected to carry out experimental research work on the synthesis and characterization of new materials at high pressure. In particular, he/she will study the reactivity of molecular systems under high pressure in diamond anvil cell (DAC) at high temperature in order to produce new materials from highly reactive mixtures, using laboratory and large facilities (SOLEIL & ESRF synchrotrons, European XFEL) equipment.

    Eligibility criteria

    PhD experience

    Selection process

    Review of applications starts on 19th july 2021 and will continue until the position is filled. The position is expected to start on October 2021.

    Offer Requirements Skills/Qualifications

    This position is open to PhD candidates with a strong background in high pressure (DAC) techniques and experience with standard “in situ” analysis (Raman and IR spectroscopies, x-ray diffraction). Experience in laser heating techniques in the DAC is also desirable. A PhD in physics, material sciences or Earth sciences is required. Successful candidates are expected to be able to work in both independent and collaborative group environments.

    Specific Requirements

    The initial appointment is for 12 months, with possible renewal for 1 year depending on results and funding availability. The net salary (before income tax) starts at 2500 € and depends on experience. Qualified candidates should send their application materials (including a CV, a list of publications, a 1-2 page(s) statement of research interests, names and addresses of 2-3 references) to Sandra Ninet:
