Postdoc position at Navier Laboratory (France)

Applications are welcomed for a postdoc position in Navier Laboratory (Ecole des Ponts ParisTech, Université Gustave Eiffel, CNRS – France) on the mitigation of crystalline swelling in clays by cationic exchange. This postdoc is part of the ALLUVIUM project (I-site FUTURE) and an on-going experimental campaign using XRD identified a shortlist of promising cationic compounds. In this postdoc, we propose to complement these experiments with molecular simulations to investigate in detail the effects of cationic exchange at the nano-scale.

The position can start anytime but not later than fall 2020.

Postdoc position at Institute of Radiation protection and nuclear safety (Fontenay Aux Roses, France)

Applications are welcomed for a 18 months postdoc position in IRSN (Institute of Radiation protection and nuclear safety, Fontenay Aux Roses – France + several stays in Barcelona – Spain) to investigate gas migration in natural and swelling clays. Further information on this position can be found in the attached document.

The work proposed in this post-doctoral fellowship is divided into two parts and consists mainly in working on the characterization of the microstructure of clay materials and their relationship to gas migration. The first part is on the impact of gas migration of the HM behavior of bentonite pellet-powder mixtures. The second part proposed concerns the image analysis tools of microtomography  to improve the segmentation of low contrast grey level areas and the morphological descriptors construction to be able to generate equivalent synthetic structures.


Il GNIG (Gruppo Nazionale di Ingegneria Geotecnica) si propone di promuovere il coordinamento delle attività di ricerca e di formazione nel Settore Scientifico Disciplinare ICAR07 – 08/B1 ‘Geotecnica’, di curare le relazioni con gli altri Settori Scientifico Disciplinari, con gli Organi di Governo dell’Università e con le Associazioni Scientifiche e Culturali del Settore.
