Offre de Post-Doc : Rational design of hybrid particles for investigating the ultra-fast energy transfer at the nanoscale

Post doc offer – Rational design of hybrid particles for investigating the ultra-fast energy transfer at the nanoscale


This project is devoted, combining theoritical and experimental approaches, to quantitatively investigate vibrational and thermal energy transfer at the nanoscale using hybrid metal-based nano-objects. The objectives are to understand and optimize the vibrational quality factors of the nano-objects and to investigate the modalities of heat transfer within a hybrid particle. This project is developed under a new government-funded (ANR) project.

The main tasks of the post-doc researcher are:

  1. Colloidal synthesis of hybrid nano-objects with well-controlled form and size
  2. Control the gap between two (or more) neighbor components within the nanohybrids
  3. Full characterization using standard nanoscience techniques
  4. To learn and perform basic optical and thermal measurements at single particle level in collaboration with physicists of Institut Lumière Matière

Candidate and Position

Candidates should hold a PhD in chemistry, nanoscience, plasmonics or a discipline relevant to the theme of the project, with a strong expertise in colloidal synthesis. Experiences in the following areas would be useful: surface functionalization, electron microscopy (SEM, TEM) and optical spectroscopy. The chemist should be capable of working as a team mate and should invest his/herself in the collective group. A stong record of publication in peer-reviewed litterature attesting to these capabilities is required. Additional responsabilities include training and supervision of students.

Duration of the post-doc position:18 months

Starting date: March 2021

Location: ICMCB, 87 av. du Dr A. Schweitzer, 33608 PESSAC, FRANCE
