Conductive polymer gels with high porosity and specific surface area are emerging as new material playgrounds in organic electronic applications. As such, the ANR BODYTEG project aims at evaluating the potential of conducting polymer aerogels (with tunable porous microstructure) for thermoelectric applications. The successful candidate will perform applied research in the field of thermoelectricity and work closely with a team of young researchers on the development and the characterizations of these new materials.
The main tasks will be to:
- develop the thermoelectric measurement methods (thermopower, thermal and charge conductivities) to characterize efficiently bulk and porous materials.
- help elucidating the structure – properties relationships
- design and optimize thermoelectric modules which will be fabricated from the most promising materials to evaluate their conversion efficiency and power output.
The other essential duties are:
-Conduct research in the hot topic of organic thermoelectric
-Mentor junior researchers
-Present research results in scientific journals and conferences
-Participate to scientific events for the general public
Required scientific qualifications
- recent PhD in Physics of organic electronic materials
-strong experience in thermoelectricity research field (charge transport, thermal properties,…)
Desired soft skills :
We are looking for a future colleague with a very good team spirit, wishing to strengthen his spirit of cooperation while being able to conduct research independently.
The candidate must be open-minded, curious and motivated to advance knowledge on this new multidisciplinary field.
Working knowledge of English is essential. Experience in writing scientific articles is expected.
Please provide a detailed CV (including publications list and 2-3 reference contacts), two reference letters and a motivation letter explaining how your skills fit with the position and how this project would suit your career objectives.
This research project work will be carried out at the Institut Charles Sadron (CNRS lab associated to Strasbourg University in France), whose research activities on polymer materials and self-assembled systems are worldwide recognized.
Please visit the laboratory's website for more details: https://www.ics-cnrs.unistra.fr.
Our laboratory is located in Strasbourg, one of the most attractive international cities in France.
The successful candidate will work within the SYCOMMOR team (Molecular and Organized Macromolecular Complex Systems) under the supervision of Laure Biniek (within the framework of her ANR BODYTEG project).
This project will be carried in close collaboration with a PhD student in his second year, the staff of the Electron Microscopy platform of ICS and the researchers of the organic electronic consortium of Strasbourg.
