The scientist (M/F), recruited for 30 months from February 1, 2022, will
carry out her/his activities at IRCER under the direction of Samuel Bernard,
Director of Research at the CNRS and coordinator of the MATRIX project on: -
the synthesis of preceramic polymers - the infiltration of fiber preforms by
PIP - the conversion of polymers into ceramics confined in the porous
structure of the ceramic preform - the characterization of materials at each
stage of their development.
The scientist (M/F) will contribute to the achievement of an ASTRID-type
research project (Specific Support for Defense Research and Innovation
Works) coordinated by IRCER (UMR 7315 CNRS-University of Limoges). This
project entitled: “Microcrystalline SiC/Si3N4 matrix composites by a hybrid
PIP-CVI process and compatible with high temperature applications (MATRIX)”
falls within the scope of research activities in axis 4 of this institute. The
scientist (M/F) will be responsible for analyzing and discussing the results
obtained during her/his post-doctorate and promoting her/his work through
patents, the publication of article (s) an /or her/his participation in
scientific events. He/she will carry out collaborative work with Masters and
PhD students on the development of ceramics from preceramic polymers and will
organize quarterly project progress meetings.
The scientistr (M/F) will work at the Institute for Research for Ceramics
(IRCER, UMR 7315 CNRS) in Limoges which has 200 staff members. IRCER
includes 4 research axes:
Axis 1: Ceramic Processes
Axis 2: Plasmas and Lasers Processes
Axis 3: Multiscale structural organization of materials
Axis 4: Ceramics under environmental constraints
as well as a Carmalim characterization platform.
The selected scientist (M/F) must hold a doctorate in materials science or
even in inorganic chemistry. Knowledge of ceramic precursors and ceramic
materials will be an added value. The selected candidate will demonstrate good
interpersonal skills, be able to work in a team and will be fluent in French
and English. He/She must also have good experience of participating in the
collective operations of a team and organizational qualities to meet the
calendar constraints of the ASTRID program. He/She will have good writing
