Job offers

  • Postdoctoral Fellow in Polymer Chemistry and Physical - Chemistry at the Laboratoire de Chimie des Polymères Organiques Topic : Polymer Chemistry and Physical - Chemistry

    Project Summary:

    In the frame of the project Tours 2015 (consortium between ST Microelectronics, CEA and 13 CNRS laboratories), a postdoctoral fellow is sought to work on an interdisciplinary project involving the design, the synthesis and the characterization of organic polymer materials for thermoelectric applications. Thermoelectric effects reciprocally allow the conversion of thermal gradients into electrical energy. Their applications are thus divided into two different categories: (micro)-cooling or the production of electricity from sources of lost thermal energy. With the constant quest towards the production of new form of “green” energy, the generation of electricity from lost heat via thermoelectric generators appears to be a promising opportunity to create a new reservoir of energy.

    This project in collaboration with ST Microelectronics aims to design novel nanocomposites based on functional polymers or copolymers as well as to extend the understanding of the structure/property relationships. A particular interest will be devoted to the thermoelectric and structural characterizations of the materials in thin film in order to determine the optimal structure leading to enhanced thermoelectric properties.

    Location: LCPO, Bordeaux, France

    Duration: 24 months

    Funding: “Investissements d’Avenir” Program

    Salary: About 2500 € gross / month

    Required Skills:

    Applicants should hold a PhD in Polymer Science with a solid expertise in controlled polymerization and structural characterization of complex systems. Team capability and good skills in English are required.

    Applications will comprise the names of two references and a CV with a publications list.

  • Postdoctoral Fellow in Polymer Chemistry and Physical-Chemistry at the Laboratoire de Chimie des Polymères Organiques. Topic : Polymer Chemistry and Physical-Chemistry

    Project Summary:

    In the frame of the European ENIAC PLACYD project, a postdoctoral fellow is sought to work on an interdisciplinary project targeting the use of block copolymer materials for lithographic applications. Indeed perfectly ordered microstructures with nanometrically defined periodicity offer promising opportunities in microelectronic applications and nanotechnologies for the production of high-density magnetic storage media, plasmonic based devices and advanced CMOS digital circuits. To produce long-range ordered two-dimensional arrays inherent to such technologies, the hybrid combination of “bottom-up” self-assembly and “top-down” guiding patterned templates has been successfully introduced. This has led to new technological breakthroughs wherein the self-assembly of block copolymers (and in particular poly(styrene)-b-poly(methyl methacrylate)) are the cornerstone of the “bottom-up” nanofabrication processes through their segregation behavior into periodic mesostructures.

    While directed self-assembly based on poly(styrene)-b-poly(methylmethacrylate) block copolymers approaches industrial maturity, new systems with the ability to self-assemble with sub-10 nm features need to be evaluated taking into account the integration requirements (in terms of solvent, thermal budget, etching contrast,…). This project in collaboration with Arkema aims to design and develop novel block copolymers with enhanced resolution to target periodic mesostructures with sub-20 nm periodicity for both contact shrink and line/space applications. The postdoctoral fellow will as well study the self-assembly of such block copolymers in the thin film configuration in order to establish a baseline process for the integration of these materials in lithographic facilities.
