Discipline : Printed electronics applied to environmental sensors
Line Manager : Director of the Center for Energy and Environment
Affiliation : Ecole Nationale Supérieure Mines-Télécom Lille Douai (IMT Nord Europe)
Workplace : Douai (France)
Type of contract: permanent position
Public establishment belonging to IMT (Institut Mines-Télécom), placed under the supervision of the Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industrial and Digital Sovereignty, IMT Nord Europe has three main objectives: providing our students with ethically responsible engineering practice enabling them to solve 21st century issues, carrying out our R&D activities leading to outstanding innovations and supporting territorial development through innovation and entrepreneurship. Ideally positioned at the heart of Europe, 1 hour away from Paris, 30 min from Brussels and 1h30 from London, IMT Nord Europe has strong ambitions to become a main actor of the current industrial transitions, digital and environmental, by combining education and research on engineering and digital technologies.
Located on two main campuses dedicated to research and education in Douai and Lille, IMT Nord Europe offers research facilities of almost 20,000m² in the following areas :
IMT Nord Europe wishes to strengthen the competences of its Centre for Research and Innovation in Energy and Environment (CERI EE), and to develop interfaces with the school's two other CERIs in Materials and Processes (CERI MP) and Digital Systems (CERI SN). The jury will be particularly attentive to proposals favouring interdisciplinarity, especially at the interfaces between CERIs and in connection with the School's and the Institute's fields of excellence.
Within CERI EE, the Atmospheric Sciences research team includes 19 teacher-researchers, 10 technicians and engineers. The central themes are aimed at a better understanding of the physicochemical processes of generation and transformation of gaseous and particulate pollutants and study of their human and environmental impact. IMT Nord Europe wants to strengthen team’s skills in the field of air quality sensors.

CERI EE's Atmospheric Sciences research team comprises 20 teacher-researchers and 10 technicians and engineers. The team's core themes are aimed at gaining a better understanding of the physicochemical processes involved in the generation and transformation of gaseous and particulate pollutants, and assessing their impact on Man and the Environment. IMT Nord Europe wishes to strengthen the team's skills in the field of sensors for monitoring indoor and outdoor air quality and individual exposure.
In this context, IMT Nord Europe is recruiting a Research Associate whose missions are described below :
Reporting to the CERI Director, the incumbent will participate in research and technology transfer activities. Teaching assignments may also be offered in connection with research activities in the specialist field of printed electronics. The applications targeted for this position concern the fields of airborne gas and particle sensors, their design, qualification and use in the various environments in which they may be deployed.
The integration will be within a multidisciplinary team with skills in atmospheric physical chemistry, electronics and polymer materials.
Research and technology transfer activities :
i) materials for organic electronics (formulation, shaping), taking into account their environmental impact,
ii) advanced characterization of thin films (property/structure/performance links).
iii) design and qualification of air quality sensors (laboratory and field),
The successful candidate must have strong scientific background and technical skills, allowing her/him to carry out the aforementioned missions.
She/He should :
The candidate must hold a PhD in organic electronics, printed electronics or materials engineering. The position would suit a person interested in research into organic materials, their application to sensors and/or the metrology associated with these sensing tools. In the French academic reference system, the position corresponds to a qualification in section CNU (Conseil National des Universités) 28, 33 and/or 63. Candidates must provide proof of experience. The candidate should be culturally open, able to work effectively into multidisciplinary projects, and show an interest in applying his/her research to air quality issues.
The administrative residence is in Douai. Regular travel is required to all of the IMT Nord Europe’s sites.
