Postdoctoral or research engineer position open at ICG Montpellier

The team «Materials synthesis for thermoelectrics» , located in the University of Montpellier 2 (University  Montpellier South of France), is involved in the synthesis, and micro-structural characterization of thermoelectric materials useful for energy conversion from waste heat recovery. Measurement of the transport properties (electrical resistivity, thermoelectric power) is performed too.

In the frame of a national project, in collaboration with International automotive companies, we are looking for a post-doc or a research engineer. The activities will be mainly focused on the synthesis and measurement performed at hight temperature, and analysis of the thermal properties of materials.

The candidate should possess a solid background in solid state chemistry, with strong aptitude to experimentation. He or she should also have good bases in solid state physics.

The position is for twelve months initially. It can be eventually extended to six other months. Applicants should send a cover letter stating their interest in applying to this position, a CV and one letter of reference. These documents should be sent to prof. Jean-Claude Tedenac (e-mail: The position will be open since October.
