This interdisciplinary project aims at developing a new type of membranes and process for seawater desalination. It will be divided into 3 steps: the realization of ZnO nanowire membranes, their surface functionalization and the studies of membrane life cycle and process performance.
Based on our preliminary results, the candidate will have to carry out the program described above.
Scientific and technical activities:
- Realization of self-supported membranes made of ZnO nanowires
- Surface functionalization of these membranes in order to control their wettability
- Characterization of the realized membranes
- Comparative life cycle analysis between the membranes and the commercialized reverse osmosis membranes and evaluation of the yields of seawater desalination processes
Related activities :
- Supervision of students (Master ...)
- Dissemination and presentation of results (publication of articles and presentation at international conferences)
The candidate must have a background in materials science and be open to life cycle analysis.
- Knowledge in materials science and more particularly in sol-gel and liquid solution chemistry
- Experimental techniques for materials characterization (SEM, XRD, AFM ...)
- Experience in measuring surface wettability properties
- Rigor, autonomy and interdisciplinarity
- Fluency in English and excellent presentation and writing skills
The Materials and Physical Engineering Laboratory (LMGP) is a joint research unit of the CNRS and Grenoble INP.
It is composed of 3 research teams:
- IMBM (Interaction between Materials and Biological Material),
- FunSurf (functional thin layers and nano-surface engineering),
- NanoMat (Nanomaterials and Advanced Heterostructure)
The laboratory is composed of about 100 people including 40 permanent and about 60 non-permanent (doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows, guest researchers, master students ...).
This postdoctoral position will be carried out in the LMGP (http://www.lmgp.grenoble-inp.fr/), under the direction of David RIASSETTO and in the G-SCOP laboratory (https://g-scop.grenoble-inp.fr/) under the direction of Damien EVRARD
