Cement manufacturing is responsible for approximately 10% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. In view of the essential nature of cement in urban infrastructures on a planetary scale, we aim at CO2 sequestration in cementitious materials. To this end, new composite materials have been synthesised from cement and carbon nanoparticles with self-heating properties.
The successful candidate will conduct synthesis experiments for the optimisation of carbon-cement composites for various dosages and types of carbon. He/she will then characterize their electrical conduction properties, their mechanical properties and texture with respect to carbonation.
The postdoctoral researcher will carry out experimental work on the synthesis and multiscale characterization of texture using several techniques (TGA, 29Si solid state NMR, Raman, CO2 / Ar / N2 adsorption, mechanical tests ranging from nanoindentation in macroscopic tests) and texture imaging (basic SEM mapping, electronic tomography and X-ray techniques).
The candidate should have obtained a doctorate in the field of materials science, civil engineering or other field.
The postdoctoral researcher will have access to the facilities of the Mechanics and Civil Engineering Laboratory (LMGC, Campus St Priest) and the Engineering school IMT, Alès. He / She will be supervised by Katerina Ioannidou (LMGC) and Gwenn Le Saout (IMT Alès). This project is funded by the industrial partner TITAN cement. Monthly progress meetings will be online and biannual meetings with the industrial partner will be organized in Montpellier and / or Athens in Greece.
The postdoctoral researcher will also benefit from the international research network USERS (Urban Science and Engineering for Resilience and Sustainability) between universities in France (U Montpellier, U Bordeaux, PSL, A-MU, ENS-Lyon), in the USA (MIT, UC -Berkley, Georgetown, George Washington) and in Europe (U Hannover, Imperial College, DIPC-San Sebastian, TU-Vienna) in the field of materials science for urban resilience.
