Date 14-09-2022

Place : University of Toulouse, Laboratoire d’Analyse et d’Architecture des Systèmes (LAAS), Department of Energy Management.


Position : Research positions

LAAS is a CNRS laboratory and also a community of bold researchers where science meets micro and nano technology in close connection with society. We are committed to identifying and solving grand societal challenges and building an innovative future. LAAS has eight departments with nearly 200 doctoral students and a staff of more than 400, of which 300 are researchers or professors. Our campuses are located in Toulouse, south of France. The LAAS portfolio covers fields from physics to engineering and information sciences. In parallel with basic research, we develop ideas and technologies further into innovations and services. We develop integrated solutions from care of the elderly to space robotics.

The Department of Energy Management is looking for two highly motivated and talented Postdoctoral Researchers to join our research work, with potential to apply for permanent research positions at the CNRS or at the University of Toulouse.

JOB DESCRIPTION: Postdoctoral Researchers in thermite materials science and technology

Faculty and staff at NEO-group have joined efforts to form an interdisciplinary team with an overriding focus on nano-engineering and integration of thermite-based energetics into devices to generate heat/pressure/specific gas into miniaturized systems.

We follow a multi-disciplinary scientific approach combining nanomaterial engineering, multi-step physics-based computational modeling and experimental research to understand the kinetics of Al/metal-oxide reactions, plus artificial intelligence technique to support future TCAD.

We are looking for post-docs with background in physics of materials, material sciences or closely related areas. Both theorists and experimentalists are welcome and will be considered.

Your goal as a Postdoctoral Researcher will be to develop this field of research. This is an exciting and rare opportunity to be involved in a research topic with high expected societal impact for civilian and military infrastructures and aviation.

You will be a key member of a research group (NEO) and possibilities will be offered to apply for a permanent associated-position in 2024.
