You ‘d like to contribute as a researcher? Join our Materials Research and Technology department 

Through its research into advanced materials and processes, the “Materials Research and Technology” (MRT) department, with its 200 researchers and engineers, contributes to the emergence of enabling technologies that underpin the innovation processes of local and international industry. MRT’s activities hinge on four thematic pillars: nanomaterials and nanotechnology, scientific instrumentation and process technology, structural composites, and functional polymers.

The department also includes four high-tech platforms, focusing on composites, prototyping, characterization and testing. These platforms serve both LIST research staff, and other stakeholders in Luxembourg.

Responsibilities

How will you contribute?

Our needs in energy are extremely high (162.000 TWh in 2017) and keep increasing (+ 1.9 % per year). We have to come up with new strategies and technologies to live in a more sustainable way. In this regard, a strategic field of research is Energy Harvesting (EH), in which LIST-MRT is strongly engaged. In this project, we intend to study an emerging alternative principle of converting heat into electricity. It relies on the variation of electric polarisation that some insulators exhibit when temperature changes. This effect has been first called “thermodielectric” when it was discovered in the 50s; later on, it has been referred to as “pyroelectric energy harvesting”. This effect is the converse effect of the electrocaloric effect, both effects being strongly linked together. We recently made some remarkable discovery on electrocaloric materials [Torello et al., Science 370 (6512), 125 (2020)] and we think that these outstanding results can trigger ideas in thermodielectric materials. 

In this PhD, you will investigate heat energy harvesters based on unique macroscopic pyroelectric materials. To do so, you will have to characterize the materials of interest with diverse tools, such as dielectric, ferroelectric set-ups, but also Infra-Red camera and Differential Scanning Calorimetry. You will also be in charge of developing small prototypes.

In the context of the valorisation of space resources, the development of reversible fuel cells (Reversible PEMFCs) requires advances in performance and durability, for which the electrode is the most limiting component. The latter is mostly composed of a random assembly of platinum-based nanoparticles within a network of proton-conducting polymers. It is generally obtained from a slurry after evaporation of the solvent. Currently, research and development aimed at improving electrode performance and reducing manufacturing costs is based on a self-assembly approach. The aim of this project is to obtain a thorough knowledge of the relationships between electrode structure and electrode properties and performance depending upon the quality of water as-extracted or as-refined from the reduction of lunar regolith.

The resulting structural evolution of the electrode will be characterized using Operando's electrochemical, structural and imaging measurements and the candidate will aim to streamline the design of high-performance and extremely reliable electrodes. This project will involve individuals with the complementary skills required for this study.

E-2129 - PhD POSTION IN HYDROLOGY

Description

Are you passionate about research? So are we! Come and join us

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) active in the fields of materials, environment and IT. By transforming scientific knowledge into technologies, smart data and tools, LIST empowers citizens in their choices, public authorities in their decisions and businesses in their strategies. 

https://www.list.lu/


You ‘d like to contribute as a PhD Student ? Join our Environmental Research and Innovation department 

The Environmental Research and Innovation (ERIN) department, made up of 200 life science, environmental science and information technology researchers and engineers, provides the interdisciplinary knowledge, expertise and technologies to lead solutions including the major environmental challenges facing society, such as climate change mitigation, ecosystem resilience, sustainable energy systems, efficient use of renewable resources, and environmental pollution prevention and control.

The department relies on two cutting-edge platforms, the Biotechnologies and Environmental Analytics Platform and the Observatory for the Climate and the Environment, and the GreenTech Innovation Centre (GTIC): a one-stop-shop for the complete development of bio-based products and processes.

Embedded into the ENVISION unit, the ‘Catchment and eco-hydrology’ (CAT) research group has its efforts geared towards a holistic understanding of intrinsically coupled hydrological and human systems. At the CAT group we rely on our competences in hydrology, geochemistry, sedimentology and environmental systems engineering for gaining a better understanding of eco-hydrological processes controlling hydrological and biogeochemical cycles, vegetation and sediment dynamics, pollutant removal, and ecosystem resilience.

This PhD position in hydrology opened at the CAT group is wired into the FNR MUSES (Freshwater pearl mussels as stream water stable isotope recorders) project – carried out jointly between the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (Luxembourg) and the University of Mainz (Germany). Within the MUSES project, two complementary PhD positions are advertised:

PhD 1 – ‘Freshwater pearl mussels (Margaritifera margaritifera) as faithful δ18Owater recorders’ at the University of Mainz, Supervision by Prof. Bernd Schöne. For more information on this position, visit https://www.geosciences.uni-mainz.de/jobs/

PhD 2 – ‘Bedrock geology controls on catchment sensitivity and resilience to climate change’ at the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology / University of Luxembourg, Supervision by Prof. Laurent Pfister.

https://www.paleontology.uni-mainz.de/positions_MUSES.html

Responsibilities

How will you contribute?

Our set of nested catchments with their mixed and uniform physiographic settings are good examples of how bedrock geology controls the basic hydrological functions of water collection, storage, and release.

Objectives: We propose to extend catchment intercomparison work carried out in the framework of prior projects to the young water fraction (Fyw) discharge sensitivity metric. Leveraging reconstructed multi-decadal stream water δ18O series from the MUSES PhD 1 (carried out at the University of Mainz, Germany), you will use Fyw discharge sensitivity from three study catchments (in Luxembourg, Germany & Sweden) for comparing how proportions of flow travelling via fast flow paths may change under climate change induced modified flow regimes.

  • Assess bedrock geology controls on discharge sensitivity of Fyw from seasonal amplitudes in precipitation and stream water δ18O in our set of nested catchments in the Sûre River basin with contrasted bedrock geology and homogeneous climate.
  • Contribute to (i) the identification of potential historical changes in stream flow regime (with ~100 years worth of reconstructed stream flow δ18O from the 1st PhD), and (ii) search for mechanistic links between changes in stream flow regime and changes in atmospheric processes.
  • Test the MUSES project’s overarching hypothesis of shifts in hydraulic regime (triggered by climate change) mechanistically translating into a modification of the fraction of water travelling to the stream by fast flow paths – with the magnitude of this modification being modulated by bedrock geology.
  • Publish high quality research articles in peer-reviewed international journals of the field
  • Attend conferences and potentially travel to project partners
  • Be an integral part of the life of the CAT research group by contributing to the groups’ development, and regularly communicating on your work progress during both technical and scientific meetings.

The department relies on two cutting-edge platforms, the Biotechnologies and Environmental Analytics Platform and the Observatory for the Climate and the Environment, and the GreenTech Innovation Centre (GTIC): a one-stop-shop for the complete development of bio-based products and processes.


Within the ERIN department, the ‘Environmental Sensing and Modelling’ (ENVISION) unit is an interdisciplinary team of 50+ scientists, engineers, post-docs and PhD candidates – structured in three complementary groups focusing on critical zone research, remote sensing and natural resources modelling, and agro-environmental systems research.


Embedded into the ENVISION unit, the ‘Agro-environmental Systems’ (AGRO) research group has its focus set on the future of agriculture. Agronomists, entomologists, climatologists and soil microbiologists apply interdisciplinary approaches geared towards more efficient and sustainable crop production in the challenging context of global change. Within the conceptual framework of Climate Smart Agriculture, the major deliverables of the AGRO group consist in policy support and decision support tools for public services and farmers.


At the AGRO group, we rely – together with our colleagues from the ENVISION unit – on a holistic approach for investigating the bio-geophysical functioning of agro-environmental systems. Our goal is to better understand and develop novel management strategies and technologies that reduce the environmental footprint of agriculture in a context of increasing societal demands and climate change. We deliver policy support and decision support tools for farmers to meet the challenges of a sustainable agriculture.

To address these challenges, we rely on our expertise in:

  • Pest and disease monitoring: pests in oilseed rape; diseases in cereals; weeds in wheat, maize and oilseed rape; pest and diseases in viticulture
  • Pesticide reduction in agriculture (including viticulture) via crop rotation, crop cultural management, disease forecast, use of less harmful or biological products, biological or biotechnological pest control
  • Climate change: adaptation strategies in agriculture, viticulture and horticulture
  • Pollinator decline: honeybee colony losses - from monitoring to prevention strategies
  • Reduction of air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions from the agricultural sector
  • Holistic forecast models and digital decision support tools for agriculture and viticulture
  • Role of soil microorganisms to develop and maintain sustainable agro-ecosystems

MRT’s activities hinge on four thematic pillars: nanomaterials and nanotechnology, scientific instrumentation and process technology, structural composites, and functional polymers.

The department also includes four high-tech platforms, focusing on composites, prototyping, characterization and testing. These platforms serve both LIST research staff, and other stakeholders in Luxembourg.

Responsibilities

The new group that you will be in charge of

The Scientific Instrumentation and Process Technology (SIPT) RDI unit of the MRT Department is currently composed of the Advanced Instrumentation for Nano-Analytics (AINA) and the Plasma Process Engineering (PPE) groups. In the context of an integrated approach grouping manufacturing processes and characterisation systems, the SIPT Unit is currently setting up the “Process modelling, automation and robotisation (PROMAR)” group.


Such an integrated approach grouping manufacturing processes and characterisation systems is of highest interest not only for (routine) manufacturing, but also and importantly for the discovery/development of new materials. Accelerating the discovery of new materials as well as the associated research required for maturing these technologies into deployment, will require a radical departure from traditional forms of discovery, moving to closed-loop schemes. The SIPT unit will in particular focus on modular materials robotics platforms that can be assemblies of modular building blocks for synthesis and characterisation.


In this strategic context, the field of expertise of the new PROMAR group will need to be concentrated on the following three aspects:

  • Process modelling: A first level of process modelling is required to integrate and interlace all aspects related to materials manufacturing and the characterisation aspects in a single closed-loop process, allowing an integrated autonomous process/research enabled by data interchange across synthesis/processing, characterisation, and analysis.
  • AI & deep learning: AI and deep learning strategies will be used as an important tool to implement predictive systems in automated processes in view of developing automated synthesis infrastructure capable of self-optimising and self-parametrising using a number of different input parameters.
  • Robotics & systems integration: Designing appropriate robotics and making an intelligent systems integration will be key to move from the process models to hardware. For this third aspect, a close collaboration with MRT’s prototyping team will be required.
  • Following LIST’s RTO approach, the developments of the PROMAR group will be progressively implemented into prototypes and pilot lines that are either available within LIST or that will be specifically set up for these activities.

M-1908 LEAD R&T ASSOCIATE IN THE FIELD OF ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING OF POLYMER COMPOSITE MATERIALS

Description

Your work environment

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) active in the fields of materials, environment and IT. By transforming scientific knowledge into technologies, smart data and tools, LIST empowers citizens in their choices, public authorities in their decisions and businesses in their strategies.

You will be part of the LIST Materials Research and Technology department 

Through its research into advanced materials and processes, the “Materials Research and Technology” (MRT) department, with its 200 researchers and engineers, contributes to the emergence of enabling technologies that underpin the innovation processes of local and international industry. MRT’s activities hinge on four thematic pillars: nanomaterials and nanotechnology, scientific instrumentation and process technology, structural composites, and functional polymers.

The department also includes four high-tech platforms, focusing on composites, prototyping, characterization and testing. These platforms serve both LIST research staff, and other stakeholders in Luxembourg.

The Structural Composites Unit is strategically positioned in the framework of National Composites Centre - Luxembourg initiative (NCCL) to address the development of high-performance and multifunctional polymer-based composites. The research team drives the next generation of composites engineering to bring about functional and ultra-lightweight materials and structures which are architected at several scales of observation up from their basic constituents, and covering interfaces and interphases at all levels. This work aims at advancing knowledge in experimental, and multi-scale and multifield modelling and design of multifunctional and ultra-lightweight and high-performance composites which are reliable and sustainable. Experimental and computational methodologies and tools are developed to cover the full composites development chain, from the engineering of materials and processes, through structural design optimisation, to manufacturing, and enable multi-objective performance optimization. Full-scale composite technology demonstrators are brought to the industry, hence making them available for Luxembourg, Grande Region and European societies.

The Structural Composites Unit (SC Unit) hosts a FNR PEARL Chair with the project ‘Multiscale data-driven virtual design for manufacturing of composite materials: Driving the next generation of ultra-lightweight additively manufactured fibre-reinforced polymers (DRIVECOMP).


Responsibilities

What you will be doing

In the framework of the DRIVECOMP project, and to accomplish its overall R&D strategy, the SC Unit is seeking a Lead Research & Technology Associate in the field of additive manufacturing of polymer composite materials.

A strong focus will be put on 3D printing of composites, especially Fused Filament Fabrication of thermoplastics reinforced with continuous and discontinuous fibres. Nevertheless, the research scope includes other ground-breaking composites 3D-printing techniques coming to market as well as more traditional advanced composites manufacturing approaches as Automated Fibre Placement and Robotized Filament Winding.

The main purpose of the research is to leverage these additive manufacturing techniques to achieve novel ultra-lightweight structural composites that are highly tailored to specific applications in the aeronautical and automotive sectors, among others. Behind these ultra-lightweight concepts is a long-term vision towards the development novel paradigms in sustainable mobility such as Urban Air Mobility.

As a Lead R&T Associate, you will collaborate with an existing team with strong skills on composites computational analysis to achieve efficient manufacturing processes and optimally-designed composite structures. The coupling and integration of additive manufacturing processes is also in the scope the activities, in order to achieve complex additively manufactured parts such as ultra-lightweight sandwich structures which can accomplish multiple simultaneous design objectives such as load-bearing and crashworthiness.
