• PhD and Post-Doctoral positions in Nanomechanics (Atomistic simulations) at the Technion, Haifa, Israël.

    The Nanomechanics Simulations Laboratory at the Technion (Israel) is seeking applicants for a computational study on nucleation controlled plasticity. Two immediate openings are available for doctoral and postdoctoral research associates. 

    The positions are available in two projects. 

    -One project focuses on developing nucleation criteria at the nanoscale at various geometries and conditions. 

    -The second project, which is within the framework of collaboration with an experimental German group, aims at understanding the importance of an existing microstructure on nucleation controlled plasticity. 

    -The postdoctoral position is offered for a period of two years with a possible extension for an additional year. 

    At the doctoral level, prior knowledge in atomistic simulations / dislocation dynamics simulations and in theory of dislocations is desirable (but not obligatory). At the postdoctoral level, a similar background is essential.  

    For further information or to apply, please contact Prof. Dan Mordehai at danmord[at]tx.technion.ac.il

  • The objective of this work will be to participate to the integration of copper filled TSV in Siphotonics platform and to investigate the effect of TSV induced strain on optical components such as wave-guides, photo-diodes, and modulators. The quantification of the stresses in photonic Si is vital for the optimization of design and for the development of reliable 3D stacked structures.

    ThePhD student task will be to define and integrate 3D test structures including TSV-Middle and optical elements in collaboration with Si-Photonics design team. Advanced characterizations (μ-Raman, nano-diffraction at synchrotron) will be carried out to extract strain maps in optical components around TSV.

    Funding: CIFRE

    Partners: ST Microelectronics Crolles, CEA Leti, IM2NP (Aix Marseille Univ & CNRS).

    For further information, please contact:

    Olivier Thomas (Olivier.Thomas@im2np.fr) or Stéphanie Escoubas (Stephanie.escoubas@im2np.fr)

    Applications including a CV and a motivation letter should be sent to Olivier.Thomas@im2np.fr.

    Deadline: June 20th, 2017.

  • The Institut of Materials and Process Engineering (IMAP) of the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) and the Electron Microscopy for materials Science /EMAT) research group of the University of Antwerp are looking for a post-doctoral researcher to support various and mutual projects on transmission electron microscopy characterisation and nano-mechanical testing of novel metallic and metallic-based materials. Examples of materials include high-entropy alloys and aluminium alloys-based processed by friction stir and involving multi-material(steel, Mg, oxides, NiTi, ...) interfaces.

    Profile:  The candidate must have a background in high resolution (scanning-transmission electron microscopy techniques (TEM and STEM), including aberration corrected microscopy and have experience in in-situ nano-mechanical experiments. Hands-on experience with Titan, Osiris and Tecnai instruments is useful, as well as with Hysitron pico-indentor PI95 sample holder and Nanomegas ASTAR orientation imaging including TopSpin strain mapping. Knowledge on behaviour of defects in materials under mechanical loads is important.

    Applications can be submitted until 31 March 2017

    To apply send your CV to Prof. Hosni Idrissi (hosni.idrissi@uclouvain.be) and Prof. Nick Schryvers (nick.schryvers@uantwerpen.be)
