How will you contribute?

HfO2-based thin films have changed the way we think about ferroelectrics. This silicon-compatible and environmentally friendly material pushed the limits of ferroelectricity down to a few nanometers and revived the technology of ferroelectric memories and field-effect transistors. Nonetheless, its march towards the status of ideal ferroelectric and piezoelectric is encumbered by several hurdles, including non-robust stability of polar phases and weak piezoelectric response.

This project will explore original strategies to overcome these difficulties and optimize the ferroelectric and response properties of HfO2-based materials via nano-structuration. The project includes experimental and theoretical activities, in Luxembourg (led by LIST’s J. Íñiguez and S. Glinsek) and The Netherlands (led by University of Groningen’s B. Noheda and B. Kooi).

In particular, the theory postdoc will work at LIST under Jorge Íñiguez’s supervision. The candidate will use first-principles simulation methods to identify optimum HfO2-based nanostructures (superlattices), taking advantage of interfacial effects to tune their properties and performance. The theoretical work will be done in close collaboration with the experimentalists in the project, to both guide the experimental work and support the interpretion of the experimental results.

The research with be in line with recent activities led by Prof. Jorge Íñiguez, whose work can be consulted in Google Scholar, and to whom interested candidates are welcome to address their queries.

Responsibilities

How will you contribute?

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is seeking to recruit a PhD student to work on the synthesis of copper/carbons materials for the development of High Ampacity composites. This project is a follow-up of a finishing industrial project that successfully set-up, among other, an innovative synthesis method of such materials into standard electrolytic aqueous media.

Copper possesses quite high electro- and heat conductivities and is therefore leading many applications such as electronics, electrical household equipments, transport and aeronautics. Nevertheless, the change in energy systems and the overall technology progress generate a need for improving the copper physical properties. This means the development of new copper-based composites based on the use of nanofabrication.

We are looking for a Master Student who is expected to strongly contribute to this project through the development and the optimisation of new Copper – Carbon Nanostructure architectures for high ampacity composites. By using different fabrication techniques such as nanospray and electrodeposition, the first objective will be the fabrication of strongly bonded Co-C using a multilayers approach. The second objective will be the development of specific characterization protocols to identify the interfacial enhancer which impact the electrical functional properties. The PhD student will actively contribute to the fabrication of different Copper-Carbon structures with specific functionalisation steps to provide a composite with a high ampacity. One of the main challenges will be to design the experiments in order to improve the understanding and the modelling of the electrical conductivity in such complex structures. He/she will have to assess the best technological configuration and the related understandings to provide in the end a demonstrator to be tested in real conditions in a view of aeronautics application.

The work will be conducted in the framework of a large industrial R&D collaboration between a middle size Luxembourgish company and LIST. The candidate will be located at LIST (Belvaux) and will have regular contacts with the company.

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.

The mission of the ERIN department is:

1) To conduct impact-driven scientific research and development, as well as technological innovation;

2) To support companies in the implementation of new environmental regulations and advise governments on determining sustainable policies for the future, with the objectives of :

  • Analyzing, managing and exploiting sustainable resources (water, air, soil, renewable energy, bioresources)
  • Reducing the environmental impact of human consumption and production activities

Within the ERIN department, the ‘Environmental Sensing and Modelling’ (ENVISION) unit contributes to this mission by carrying out impact-driven research, geared towards monitoring, forecasting and predicting environmental systems in a changing world. An interdisciplinary team of around 50 scientists, engineers, post-docs and PhD candidates is developing new environmental process understanding, alongside new tools and technologies – operating at unprecedented spatial and temporal scales.

For the collaborative project “Luxembourg Time Machine” (LuxTIME), jointly carried out by the University of Luxembourg, and LIST, the ERIN department is opening a position for a PhD candidate in contaminant hydro(geo)logy. The LuxTIME project explores the potential for building a digital platform that allows to “dive” into the industrial past of the Minette region. Genuinely interdisciplinary, the project will leverage digital tools and data from different fields such as history, biomedicine, chemistry, bioinformatics, data science and eco-hydrology. As such, LuxTIME aims at exploring radically new ways of analyzing and interpreting factual evidence of the past by building an interdisciplinary framework for the investigation and visualization of “big data” of the past. LuxTIME is wired around three PhD projects and involves a larger group of senior researchers from the two institutions – participating PhD candidate supervision and topical workshops.

The selected PhD candidate will join the ENVISION unit’s ‘Catchment and eco-hydrology’ (CAT) group. The CAT group focuses on pressing questions related to :

  • How eco-hydrosystems collect, store, mix and release water, solutes and matter, 
  • New environmental monitoring tools operating at unprecedented spatial and temporal scales and 
  • Forecasting and predicting our water futures, as expressed through floods, drinking water availability, water for agriculture, or ecosystem services. 

The PhD candidate will collaborate closely with the two other LuxTIME PhD candidates hired by the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C2DH) and the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) at the University of Luxembourg.

Responsibilities

How will you contribute?

Main missions – PhD topic

The surface and groundwater bodies of the Minette region in Luxembourg are located at the eastern tip of the Paris sedimentary basin. Prior work in the area has shown that bedrock geology is controlling fundamental functions of water collection, storage, mixing and release. Here, we leverage this work and extend our investigations to the field of contaminant hydro(geo)logy for gaining a better understanding of how more than a century of exposures related to manifold industrial, urban and agricultural activities, is impacting surface- and groundwater bodies in the Minette region.

By leveraging multiple water age dating and water quality analyses techniques, this PhD project aims at characterizing the chronological evolution – from pre-industrialization to the present day – of multiple contaminants (e.g., nutrients, trace metals, pesticides, xenobiotics) in the aforementioned water bodies. The multi-chemical investigation will be combined with information gained on water source, flow paths and transit times (e.g., relying on stable isotopes of O and H in water). Water sampling campaigns will include surface water, soil solutions and groundwater. The sampling will follow both a longitudinal transect in the upper Alzette River basin in order to observe the impact of different anthropogenic activities and vertical profiles in specific locations, targeting distinct water bodies of different ages.

The water sampling strategy and subsequent analytical work will be designed in partnership with two other PhD candidates in LuxTIME, enrolled at the University of Luxembourg. Results from the PhD research in contaminant hydro(geo)logy will be wired into work carried out in the two complementary PhD projects in historical exposomics and historical data visualisation. The PhD project in historical exposomics [UdL Ref. 50003536: http://emea3.mrted.ly/2htwy] leverages contaminant hydro(geo)logy datasets, historical documents and digital history techniques for characterizing the environmental history (from pre-industrialization through to present day) and potential exposures in the Minette region. The PhD project in historical data visualisation [UdL Ref.50013002: http://emea3.mrted.ly/2hvif] will capitalise on datasets generated in the PhD projects in contaminant hydro(geo)logy and historical exposomics for building a digital platform that allows to explore radically new ways of analyzing and interpreting factual evidence of the past.

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is seeking to recruit a PhD student to work on the electrochemical synthesis of copper/carbons materials for the development of new anodic current collectors for Li-ions batteries (LIB). This project is a follow-up of a finishing industrial project that successfully set-up, among other, an innovative synthesis method of such materials into standard electrolytic aqueous media. 

Innovation in the field of anodic current collectors is generally not featured while those electrochemically inactive elements are instrumental in LIB. Yet, the weight of such elements can represent up to 8% of the total weight which is not negligible in the overall gravimetric density of a LIB. It is therefore of interest to explore the development of lighter current collectors with equal/improved mechanical and electrical properties. The work to be done will tackle the electrochemical fabrication of copper/carbons materials as well as the characterization of their physico-chemical (SEM, FTIR, XPS, DRX etc.), mechanical and electrical properties. Recent works highlighted the important role of such current collectors on the anodic slurries adhesion or the interest of a micro/nano texturation of such current collectors to reduce/cancel the metallic lithium dendritic growth. Electrochemical characterizations will evaluate how the newly fabricated copper/carbons materials behave towards those specific properties.

The work will be conducted in the framework of a large industrial R&D collaboration between a middle size Luxembourgish company and LIST. The candidate will be located at LIST (Belvaux) and will have regular contacts with the company

M-2008 - POST-DOCTORAL POSITION FOR NEW CURRENT COLLECTORS IN LI-ION BATTERIES

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 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?

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is seeking to recruit a two years postdoctoral position to work on the electrochemical synthesis of copper/carbons materials for the development of new anodic current collectors for Li-ions batteries (LIB). This project is a follow-up of a finishing industrial project that successfully set-up, among other, an innovative synthesis method of such materials into standard electrolytic aqueous media. 

Innovation in the field of anodic current collectors is generally not featured while those electrochemically inactive elements are instrumental in LIB. Yet, the weight of such elements can represent up to 8% of the total weight which is not negligible in the overall gravimetric density of a LIB. It is therefore of interest to explore the development of lighter current collectors with equal/improved mechanical and electrical properties. The work to be done will tackle the electrochemical fabrication of copper/carbons materials as well as the characterization of their physico-chemical (SEM, FTIR, XPS, DRX etc.), mechanical and electrical properties. Recent works highlighted the important role of such current collectors on the anodic slurries’ adhesion or the interest of a micro/nano texturation of such current collectors to reduce/cancel the metallic lithium dendritic growth. Electrochemical characterizations will evaluate how the newly fabricated copper/carbons materials behave towards those specific properties.

The work will be conducted in the framework of a large industrial R&D collaboration between a middle size Luxembourgish company and LIST. The candidate will work at LIST (Belvaux) and will have regular contacts with the company.

The topics of this work is very close to the ones related to other published job offers (two PhD positions and two post-doctoral positions). The candidate will therefore benefit from a potential strong interaction between those candidates. 


Must have requirements

Is Your profile described below? Are you our future colleague? Apply now!

  • You hold a PhD degree with demonstrated theoretical and practical knowledge in Materials science, Materials chemistry and electrochemistry (LIB characterizations)
  • Proven hands on experience in materials chemistry and/or LIB characterizations and/or electroplating.
  • Good experience with structural and chemical characterization using state-of-the art techniques (SEM, DRX, XPS, etc.).
  • Experience in mechanical characterizations of materials is a plus.
  • High-level scientific and technological track record related to material chemistry, LIB and/or electroplating is a plus.
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills.
  • The candidate should be motivated by working with an industrial partner.
  • Collaborative skills, initiative, autonomy, result oriented and capacity to work in an interdisciplinary environment
  • Good level of English is a must, good knowledge of French and/or German is an asset
