• PhD position at IM2NP at Aix-Marseille Université, Marseille, France

    Subject’s title: "Nano-mechanical and piezoelectric studies on semiconductor nanowires"


    Description: The MNO group of IM2NP at Aix-Marseille Université offers a PhD thesis focusing on the mechanical and piezoelectric properties of semiconductor (GaN, ZnO) nanowires.Within the framework of this thesis, the successful candidate will study the nano-mechanical (elasticity, plasticity, fracture) and piezoelectric behavior of individual nanostructures using unique experimental techniques: (i) in situ atomic force microscopy coupled with nano-focused X-ray diffraction at 3rd generation synchrotrons (ESRF, SOLEIL, …) and (ii) in situ electrical actuation during TEM imaging using a novel TEM sample holder in an aberration corrected FEI TITAN. The experiments will be accompanied by finite element method simulations.

    Application: a CV, two letters of recommendation, and a statement of research interests should be sent to michael.texier@univ-amu.fr and thomas.cornelius@im2np.fr.
