Job Details

Assistant professor in High throughput Experimentation for the development of materials/Formulations for sustainable energy applications

HTMR, the unique high throughput multidisciplinary research laboratory in Morocco that aims to promote utilization of automated and parallelization approaches for applying high-throughput and combinatorial experimental methodologies to accelerate the development of new materials and processes. High-Throughput Experimentation (HTE) is the continuation of parallel experiments using modern automated equipment and workflow design. Most of the materials are prepared using synthesis reactions where the outcome is strongly dependent on numerous key parameters. Small variations in the preparation parameters often lead to significant yield changes, and the tools to predict the reaction outcome are still in their early development. Thus, the need to run many experiments reliably and efficiently in parallel on a laboratory scale arises. The HTMR laboratory is looking for an assistant professor to consolidate their research group on the development of materials using fully automated tools allowing the synthesis and screening of large numbers of compounds through workflows design in a more rapid approach than conventional.

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 and Engineering or another suitable engineering discipline.
  • At least a first experience as a post-doc is a must.
  • Sound background in physics-chemistry of materials.
  • Experience in elaboration of materials for sustainable energy applications using different synthesis methods.
  • Skills in microstructural characterization using various microscopy techniques.
  • Initial experience in high throughput experimentation and workflow design for materials/Formulations development will be valued.
  • Knowledge in advanced structural characterizations such as in situ X-ray diffraction.
  • Skills in surface and interface, post-mortem analysis.
  • 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.
  • Experience in co-supervision and coordination of master students.
  • Experience in teaching courses at the university level.
  • Experiences in international laboratories are highly appreciated.
