Postdoc position for thermoelectric oxides processing and characterization


The functional ceramics group at CRISMAT Laboratory (France) seeks qualified applicants for a post-doc position. The research project will be working on thermoelectric materials, which can convert heat into electricity or vice versa. Series of oxides will be synthesized and selected. Structural/microstructural modifications will be applied to optimize the thermoelectric performance. The relationship between properties and structures as well as doping levels will be examined.
Successful candidates shall have a PhD in the field of material ceramic, solid state chemistry/physics, or related disciplines. Applicants should also have profound knowledge in ceramics processing and characterization, e.g. XRD, SEM, thermal analysis, transport properties measurements. Experience with Seebeck and/or thermal conductivity measurements will be beneficial for this project. The project will be carried out in close collaboration with industry. Good communication skills in English, both written and spoken, are desirable.
The position is available now. For more information and also applications, please contact Dr Emmanuel Guilmeau, email, tel: 0033(0)231451367
