First Circular ICT06

This notice was mailed by the ICT2006 organizer to ICT2006 Participants:

First Circular ICT06, 20th April, 2006

Dear Participants of ICT06

This is the first information on the status (20 April 2006) of registration
and on scientific contributions received. The Organizing Committee of ICT06
inclines to accept all your contributions, although some of you have not
respected the constraints on the style of the abstracts as well as on the number
of contributions per registered conference participant.

With respect to the limited time of ICT06 and despite we will run afternoons
in two parallel sessions, we will have time only for about 90 oral contributions.

+- Post Doc with Prof. George S. Nolas, Univ. S. Florida

Prof. George S. Nolas, Web:

A postdoctoral position in experimental Materials Physics is open for
immediate availability in the Novel Materials Laboratory in the Physics
Department at the University of South Florida under a Department of
Energy funded research program. The research involves the search for
new materials for power conversion applications including synthesis,
characterization and physical properties measurements. Good
communication skills (oral and written) are required and daily
interaction with students and faculty in a group environment is typical.
The ability to set-up new equipment and experiments as well as maintain
existing equipment is also required. A PhD in experimental Materials
Physics or related field is required and postgraduate experience is

Applicants should send an e-mail with current position and a list of
research accomplishments and goals, and include attachments that contain
(i) a resume; (ii) list of publications; (iii) list of conference
presentations; (iv) a statement of research experience and (v) at least
three references to

Post-doc position in CRISMAT, Caen

Post-doc position on Thermoelectric oxides

Subject : Synthesis and Characterization of new thermoelectric oxides

In the laboratory CRISMAT, an intense research program is dedicated to the investigation of the thermoelectric properties of different families of oxides. We are currently looking for one post-doctoral fellow, for one year. The applicant will be in charge of the synthesis of these oxides by standard solid state chemistry, their structural characterization by X-Ray diffraction, and the measurements of their transport properties (resistivity, thermal conductivity and Seebeck coefficient). This work is closely connected to an industrial contract.

Applicant profile :
The candidate should be an expert in solid state chemistry, ceramic growth by standard solid state reaction, and characterization by X-Ray diffraction. A good experience with transport measurements is desirable.

Application form :
The candidates should send their CV to Prof. Bernard Raveau ( The position is already open and the applicant should start as soon as possible.
