•The researcher will be recruited under the CNRS PreMat Program.
•The project will concern the development of an eco-responsible synthesis of the red phosphor K2SiF6:Mn4+ (KSF-Mn) for LED lighting.


The postdoctoral fellow will carry out the synthesis of the KSF-Mn phosphor using a solid-state process and will optimize the development parameters, having taken care to propose a rigorous experimental design. He or she will be in charge of the structural characterization and measurements of the optical properties of these materials.


•He/She should have defended his/her thesis recently (less than 5 years) in the research field of materials chemistry and gas/solid reactions in an oxidizing and/or reducing atmosphere.
•The person will have to be highly motivated, have a good knowledge of solid state chemistry and have strong skills in physico-chemical characterization of materials.
•Experience in the field of fluorination of materials will be highly appreciated.

Work Context

The person recruited will join the Institut de Chimie de Clermont-Ferrand (ICCF), a joint research unit under the supervision of the CNRS, the University of Clermont Auvergne and the SIGMA Clermont Engineering School, a multi-disciplinary chemistry laboratory with 120 permanent staff, which offers its skills and knowledge on major societal issues in three interface areas: Chemistry and the Environment, Chemistry and Materials, and Chemistry for Life.
In particular, the Chemistry and Materials area focuses on the development and shaping of new innovative materials (polymer-HDL nanocomposites, fluorinated nanomaterials, hybrid and biomaterials, luminescent nanoparticles, biosourced materials, polymers) and the study of their performances and durability for applications in energy storage and transmission, photovoltaics, imaging, surface treatment and durability of polymers, and detection.
