Located on the CNRS campus in Orléans at the ICARE UPR3021 laboratory,
the candidate will be responsible for conducting experimental work on the combustion of hydrogen/carbon monoxide-based mixtures. In particular, the objective is to study flame propagation regimes and mitigation methods


The research work that will be carried out in the laboratory concerns the characterization of combustion of H2/CO/diluents mixtures. The project has three components:
- Characterizing combustion;
- Determining explosion severity limits for the mixtures studied
- Implement mitigation methods
The candidate shall conduct combustion experiments in different facilities of the ICARE laboratory and use codes for calculating combustion parameters


The candidate must have:
- A doctorate in Combustion or Energy or Chemistry-Physics of reactive systems.
- Solid knowledge of combustion, and/or energy and/or chemical combustion kinetics, and /or reactive fluid dynamics
- Competence in scientific digital tools desired: Matlab, Python, Labview
- Desired digital combustion tool skills: Chemkin, Cantera, Cosilab
- Language proficiency: fluent English ( "Shock Waves" team is international
- Ability to work in a team on multi-disciplinary projects
- Writing skills: Synthesis reports, publications in international journals and international conferences

Work Context

The CNRS ICARE laboratory in Orléans has a staff of about 100 people, including 33 researchers and teacher-researchers whose main research themes are combustion, environmental chemistry and space propulsion. The candidate will join the "Onde de Choc" team.
The research project is being conducted in collaboration with different partners within the framework of the European programme AMHYCO.
Different experimental facilities will be used dedicated to the study of the flame and shock propagation. It is coupled with many diagnostics: fast pressure sensors, shock sensors, photomultipliers, gas phase micro-gas chromatographer, fast imaging system, fast particle image velocimetry system

Constraints and risks

- Short-term travel to France for progress meetings
- Travel abroad to present the work at international conferences
