TIPTOP is a 3 year R&D collaborative project aiming at producing new knowledge on heat transport between a liquid and a solid at nanoscale for a better thermal management of nanoporous materials or contacting objects. It is organized in three tasks: 1. elaboration of silicon samples with functionalized surface or nanoporosity with functionalized surface, 2. multiscale thermal measurements of samples using Scanning Thermal Microscopy and PhotoThermal techniques, 3. atomistic simulations as inputs of global thermal modeling of samples. The key parameter is the liquid/solid interface.
The candidate will be in charge to conduct atomistic simulations of the heat transfer in hybride (solid/liquid) nanocomposite systems.


• Modeling of nanoporous systems with liquids
• Modeling of nano-objects
• Modeling of Chemical functionalisation of the surface of studied nanostructures
• Molecular Dynamics simulations of thermal properties of hybrid nanocomposites
• Writting reports for the project and scientific publications


The position is available for a highly motivated candidate with a recent PhD in physics, materials science, mechanical engineering, or related fields. The ideal candidate is one who has a background and/or is strongly interested in the fundamental concepts of thermal transport and related atomistic simulations and computational modelling and thus must have among others good programming skills. The candidate should have experience with either Molecular Dynamics simulation or ab-initio DFT simulation tools. Basic knowledge in materials science and phonon transport is desired. Excellent English writing and oral communication skills are mandatory.

Work Context

The candidate will be hired by CNRS. The work is to take place in Lyon (France), at the Centre for Energy and Thermal Sciences (CETHIL) in the Micro and Nanoscale Heat Transfer (MiNT) group. The laboratory is located in the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA) on the Campus La Doua – LyonTech of Université de Lyon
