Stratégie d'établissement

The CNRS conducts all research of interest to the advancement of science as well as to the economic, social and cultural progress of the country. Oriented towards the common good, this approach to research is multidisciplinary, long-term and open to the unknown.
The CARMATAT Junior Professorship aims to strengthen the high-level scientific potential of the CNRS in the study of materials physics. Materials are at the heart of many strategic research priorities at the interface between physics, chemistry and engineering. The optimization of materials is conditioned by the knowledge of the existing relationships between their structures and their properties. Research in this field influences competitiveness in many sectors of innovative technologies and is part of many CNRS projects.

Stratégie du laboratoire d'accueil

The four laboratories proposed to host the CARMATAT JPC are recognized as leading international laboratories in the field of materials characterization. Each laboratory has specificities on which the candidates are invited to consider to build their research program.

The IM2NP laboratory is developing original research based on a combination of Atom Probe Tomography (APT), electron microscopy and synchrotron radiation imaging, focused on the study of fundamental mechanisms of interaction between defects (grain boundaries, dislocations) and impurities at nanometric to millimetric scales.

In the last two years, the GPM laboratory has made important investments in its instrumental park dedicated to the analysis of materials at the atomic scale. Its research projects aim to maintain its excellence in scientific instrumentation on Atom Probe Tomography (especially the coupling with TEM), and on the understanding of the influence of defects on the properties of materials.

The CIMAP laboratory has just acquired several equipments at the cutting edge of materials characterization at the atomic scale (FIB, DRX, new nanosims and ultrasensitive camera on the double corrected STEM microscope). It wishes to reinforce these activities around the GANIL ion beams and the modifications they induce to materials (material aging, nanostructuring, development of new properties related to defects...).

The ICMN laboratory is a partner of the MACLE research platform, which includes a set of equipment for the characterization of materials by electron microscopy. The laboratory wishes to reinforce its competences in the study of the mechanisms of creation, diffusion and healing of defects in carbon nanostructures at the atomic scale.

Stratégie Internationale

CNRS is a major player in international science. All over the world, CNRS teams collaborate with the best laboratories and every year, high-level foreign researchers join it. These cooperative ventures, based on complementarity and emulation, ensure the continued progress of excellent research to meet the global challenges of the 21st century. The CNRS also encourages and supports the setting up of international research projects, particularly at the European level (ERC and EIC) and collaborative exchanges (IEA, IRP, IRN).

Résumé du projet scientifique

The progress made in recent years in the field of instruments dedicated to the characterization of the fine structure of materials is constantly widening the scope of research in condensed matter physics. These new characterization tools, installed in laboratories or on large research instruments such as synchrotrons, allow the study of the complex relationships existing between the structure and properties of materials down to the atomic scale and often as a function of time. The fundamental research carried out in CNRS laboratories on these topics is at the heart of many innovations and future technological transitions.

Résumé du projet d'enseignement

The candidate will have to propose a teaching project (42h) within the theme "characterization of materials at the atomic scale" and the interdisciplinary context of the position. This teaching project will then be discussed with the university of the host laboratory.

Environnement Financier

  • Total financé (dont package ANR) : 200 k€
  • Total du projet : 200 k€

Diffusion scientifique

The results will be disseminated through world-class scientific productions (publications, software, patents, etc.). In addition, the project will implement a communication towards various targets such as scientific communities, media, decision-makers, general public, schools, etc., with an adapted calendar. Specific tools could be developed such as websites, newsletters, meetings, international symposia, summer schools and conferences.

Science ouverte

The CNRS is developing a strong policy in favour of open science. Open science consists of making research results "as accessible as possible and as closed as necessary". As such, the CNRS aims to make 100% of the texts of publications resulting from the work of its units accessible, in particular through deposit in HAL. The data produced must also be made available and reusable, unless there are specific restrictions. In addition, the guiding principles of individual evaluation have been revised in accordance with the DORA declaration, making them more qualitative and taking into account all facets of the researcher's job.

Science et société

The relationship between science and society is now recognised as an integral dimension of scientific activity. The project will develop this dimension in synergy with all the partners. The resulting research work will help to inform public decision-making. Participatory science initiatives may be initiated with actors from the project's socio-economic and cultural ecosystem.


The activity will be evaluated in particular on the basis of scientific production (publications, software, patents, etc.), on institutional and private partnerships formalised by contracts, on international influence, on the promotion of work to multidisciplinary scientific communities, on innovation and its transfer to society and on scientific dissemination to non-specialist audiences.
