At CEMHTI laboratory in Orléans (CNR, France), "Materials and Resonance" and "Refractory Materials: Design and Corrosion" teams are looking for a research scientist in order to follow the impregnation in porous ceramics using spatially resolved (MRI) relaxometry.
The objectives of the proposed subject are:
- To validate the experimental setup and to interpret the results in order to obtain quantitative information from the spatial and temporal resolution.
- Extend the monitoring from 1D to 2D and 3D
The research scientist will have to study follow the impregnation in porous ceramics using spatially resolved (MRI) relaxometry. In particular:
- To setup the experiments (samples + MRI)
- To aalidate the MRI experimental setup for monitoring the impregnation
- To analyze the results, i.e. determine the impregnation front in correlation with the pore size distribution. front
- To valorize the results by publications and the participation in national/international conferences
The applicant is expected to have:
- Recent PhD thesis (< 2 years).
- Expertise in MRI especially in porous media. Characterization based on relaxation time measurement would be appreciated.
- General knowledge about porous medium and specific characterization techniques
- Experimental development and NMR methodology.
Ability to work in a team on multidisciplinary projects (materials science, physics).
- Organizational capacity and ability to learn and develop skills.
- Fluency in reading, writing and speaking English.
- Planning and implementation of research work within defined deadlines.
- Promotion of research results through oral and written presentations.
CEMHTI is a CNRS research unit of around 110 people.
The laboratory develops expertise and original tools on a national and international level to study, in particular in situ, the physico-chemical properties of materials under extreme conditions.
The engineer will integrate the "Materials and Resonances" team. Its activity will be part of a research axis common to this team and to the "Refractory Materials: Design and Corrosion" team and which relates to the development of MRI for in situ monitoring of impregnation phenomena.
Deadline to apply: December 7th 2020
Constraints and risks
The activity linked to the job profile will require some professional travel depending on the sanitary conditions in force.
The starting date is likely to be changed given the current health situation in France linked to the Covid-19 epidemic
