Workplace : TOULOUSE
Date of publication : Monday, September 09, 2019
Type of Contract : FTC Scientist
Contract Period : 7 months
Expected date of employment : 2 December 2019
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : 2617 € gross salary (about 2100 € net salary)
Desired level of education : PhD

An important part of the work will consist in optimizing the conditions of preparation and the thermal cycles under gas of the sensitive layers. The optimization of the elaboration conditions will be studied in order to obtain nanostructured oxides. The multiplication of the number of grain boundaries and the high surface/volume ratio related to the nanostructuration are favorable to an increase in the response.


- elaboration of thin films (RF sputtering)
- heat treatment (oven)
- structural characterizations (GXRD, Raman),
- micro-structural characterizations (AFM, MEB and TEM microscopy, BET surface measurement)
- measurements of electrical properties (4-point probe)
- sensor test (electrical measurements under gas)
- writing publications


Man/Woman with a PhD in Materials Science or Physics of Materials with expertise in thin film sputtering and structural, microstructural, and electrical characterization. Junior researcher: experience less than 2 years after the thesis. Experience in the study of thin layers for gas sensors will be prefered (especially Mox sensor knowledge and gas sensing experiments by using electrical measurements under controlled temperature and atmosphere). We are looking for a dynamic person who has demonstrated his ability to carry out research work and write publications independently.

Work Context

This research work will be conducted in the OVM team of CIRIMAT (thin nanostructured layers, microstructure-property relationships, understanding of reaction mechanisms at solid-gas interfaces). The position is funded by the Interreg-Sudoe program as part of the NanoSens-AQM project. The 6-month post-doc will take place on the CIRIMAT site located at the University of Toulouse 3 Paul Sabatier.
