About UM6P:

Mohammed VI Polytechnic University is an institution dedicated to research and innovation in Africa and aims to position itself among world-renowned universities in its fields. The University is engaged in economic and human development and puts research and innovation at the forefront of African development. A mechanism that enables it to consolidate Morocco's frontline position in these fields, in a unique partnership-based approach and boosting skills training relevant for the future of Africa. Located in the municipality of Benguerir, in the very heart of the Green City, Mohammed VI Polytechnic University aspires to leave its mark nationally, continentally, and globally.

Description de l’entité de recherche

The High Throughput Multidisciplinary Research (HTMR) laboratory aims for an interdisciplinary, diverse and cross-cutting approach to an entrepreneurial ecosystem directly related to its industrial and socio-economic environment in Morocco and Africa. HTMR provides highly automated and parallel approaches to the development of new materials and processes. HTMR allows scientists from all UM6P research community to develop automated workflows that ultimately increase precision and efficiency and reduces the time and cost involved in their development pathways. The wide expertise developed by the researchers working at the HTMR, plays a pivotal link between the initial proof of concepts and the consolidation of the results and their viability. Thus, the validation is monitored through design of experiments and optimization of workflows much more rapidly than conventional approaches.

The HTMR is a 100% Applied Sciences research laboratory, and is setting up its first targeted research projects around:

  • Metallurgy & anti-corrosion materials
  • Phosphates, intelligent fertilizers, silicon and fluoride-based materials
  • Energy storage (Electrolyte, Electrodes...)
  • Biomass/Biomaterials and Industrial By-Products
  • Characterizations and analyses

Description d¢emploi

The successful candidate will:

  • Undertake original research of international excellence.
  • Prepare papers for publication in leading journals and/or contribute to the dissemination at national/international conferences, workshops and meetings.
  • Communicate to the research projects team the development, progress and results of research activities.
  • Develop collaborative links with the core scientific staff in related program areas to gain exposure and build knowledge on experimental/research activities and approaches, in order to improve conceptual development and implementation.
  • Identify areas of improvement within the research structure using integrated management approaches in pursuit of capacity building/strengthening and the preservation of scientific rigor in research studies.
  • Support if required, the development of proposals for research funding.
  • Develop undergraduate courses, MASTER courses and modules.
  • Support the appropriate equipment purchasing and ability to deal with international suppliers.
  • Assist to the supervision of Ph.D. students and guide their research work.

Profil recherché

Due to the multidisciplinary character of HTMR, the ideal candidate must have as well a multidisciplinary scientific profile:

  • PhD degree in Materials Science, polymer chemistry or another suitable engineering discipline.
  • Sound background in Polymers/Materials synthesis/Electrochemistry for energy application.
  • Skills in microstructural characterization using various microscopy techniques.
  • Knowledge in advanced structural characterizations will be valued.
  • Knowledge in polymerization technics, 
  • Familiar with risk assessment and safe working procedures in a chemical laboratory.
  • Excellent communication skills (oral and written) in English. 
  • Good publication track record in peer-reviewed journals.
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a multidisciplinary and multicultural team.
  • Excellent networking ability and organizational skills.
