IS THE JOB RELATED TO STAFF POSITION WITHIN A RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURE?Yes
Aquatic ecosystem monitoring is an important environmental concern that targets large families of pollutants generated by human activities. Monitoring surface water is usually performed in laboratories using conventional techniques for the detection of a wide range of molecules. The reliability of the final results is related to the steps from sampling to the analysis. Packaging, preservation, storage and transport are subject to strict rules to be observed in order to limit any sample changes. This process is proved to be laborious, time-consuming and leads to a lack of real-time results used to promote a proactive response to water contamination. The aim of this project, supported by ANR funding, is to develop a micro-fluidic LOD (Lab-on-disc) platform integrating sensors and biosensors based on the physiological micro-algae response (Figure 1). The optical sensor of this LOD, based on microalgae fluorescence, will contain excitation sources (organic light emitting diodes (OLED)), photodiodes and optical filters. The specificities of the OLEDs integrated into the optical sensor require the design and fabrication of advanced devices with specific properties i.e. wavelength (UV-Vis), spectral width, emission spectra and luminescence efficiency. This implies the use of new devices geometries both in terms of organic semiconductors (emissive and transport layers optimization) and MOLED structure (micro-cavity OLED devices with dielectric mirrors and transparent electrodes). The objectives of the post-doctorate position will therefore consist of designing, developing and characterizing these innovative components until their final integration into the Lab-on-disc.
Required Research Experiences
RESEARCH FIELDPhysics › Applied physics
YEARS OF RESEARCH EXPERIENCE1 - 4
REQUIRED EDUCATION LEVELPhysics: PhD or equivalent
REQUIRED LANGUAGESENGLISH: Good
The candidate should have completed or be about to complete a PhD in applied physics or in organic optoelectronics.
This multidisciplinary research project will require huge work on the development and characterization of organic devices OLED and MOLED. It will be based on solid knowledge of organic electronics and optoelectronic characterization of devices. The candidate has to master deposition techniques such as vacuum evaporation, spin-coating, and characterization techniques of optoelectronic devices (I-V, L-V, …). Optical skills, and knowledge of XRR characterization techniques would be a plus.
Basic knowledge of French language would be appreciated.
To apply, candidates must send an up-dated CV, a list of publications, a cover letter and the name of at least two references.
