The Physical Chemistry of Surfaces Research Group (PCS) of the Institut de Chimie Paris (IRCP, CNRS / Chimie ParisTech) is looking for highly motivated candidates for a post-doctoral position.
The project focuses on the understanding of nickel release mechanisms for austenitic stainless steels, including possible galvanic corrosion processes. To carry out this study, the candidate will use an original experimental approach developed by the PCS team combining electrochemical measurements, dissolution measurements (ICP-OES) and fine characterization of surfaces by time-of-flight secondary ions mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). This approach should allow to characterize the key factors for nickel release and correlate them with the physicochemical properties of the surface oxides (passive films) on the stainless steel. Based on the obtained results, solutions for better corrosion protection and blocking of nickel release will be searched.
The task of the selected candidate will include the preparation of surfaces, the performing of ICP-OES and electrochemical measurements and the interpretations of XPS and ToF-SIMS results. Other tasks will include the presentation of data to supervisors, the preparation of reports, and the publication of results in scientific journals.
-knowledge in surface analysis, corrosion and electrochemistry.
-fluent English (oral and written)
The PCS research group of the Institut de Recherche de Chimie Paris (IRCP, CNRS/Chimie ParisTech) develops the study of corrosion processes based on the chemical and structural characterization of surfaces and interfaces at the nanometric and atomic scales, and on the understanding of the relationships between mechanisms at the nanometric scale and macroscopic manisfestations of corrosion phenomena.
Applicants must send their Curriculum Vitae, cover letter and two letters of reference. Only complete applications will be considered. Candidates will be pre-selected based on their academic excellence for an interview in Paris or by videoconference.
