IMT Atlantique (école nationale supérieure Mines-Télécom Atlantique Bretagne Pays de la Loire) is an Elite Graduate School in Engineering and an International Research Center under the authority of the Ministry of Industry and Digital Communication. Resulting from the merger between Mines-Nantes and Télécom-Bretagne, since the 1st of January 2017, IMT Atlantique is a member of the “Institut Mines-Télécom” (the leading group in France for studies and research in Engineering and Management. It includes 12 Engineering Institutes and 1 Business School in France).
Based on 3 different Campuses: Brest, Rennes and Nantes, IMT Atlantique aspires to combine Energy and Digital Technology with the aim of transforming Society and Industry through Education, Research and Innovation, in order to become the French Research center of reference in this area. Each year, IMT Atlantique trains 2.300 students in Engineering / Master of Science and PhDs. Lead by 290 researchers, IMT Atlantique’s research activities seek to connect the world of Business and Higher Education, providing 1.000 publications and €18 millions contracts per year. IMT Atlantique programs are based on leading-edge research through the 6 joint research departments: GEPEA, IRISA, LATIM, LABSTICC, LS2N and SUBATECH.
SPECIFIC CONTEXT OF THE COMMITMENT:
The candidate will work in the Optics department of the IMT Atlantique (Brest Campus) within the IMT/Carnot platform, Arago, in the Liquid Crystal and Composite Materials team. He will develop a new research axis in the field of smart sensors, as part of the collaboration with the INL (Portugal), the Ecole des Mines Douai and Mines Saint-Etienne. The candidate will reinforce the existing global expertise in the field of polymer engineering (Optics department), electronic sensors (Electronics department) and embedded antenna (Micro-Wave department). The candidate will interact with the Ecole des Mines Douai (composite Polymer technology) and Saint-Etienne (PTSI department) for the functionalization, material supply and their electronic integration. For health applications, he will work with the INSERM team of the Optics department (visual sensors for smart contact lenses). The candidate’s expertise will enable to set up new industrial or academic projects within the IMT in partnership with the INL. His research will concern the field of systems design involving aggregates in liquid solid transition gels or plastic deformations, which involves covering a wide range of skills in physical and structural studies of soft matter (e.g. participate in the GdR Graphene&nanotubes) where we maintains a technological activity, especially in micro- and nanotechnology. He will focus on the integration of new materials (thin film piezoelectric, polycrystalline diamond, graphene, liquid crystal polymers, surface micro/nano-structuring (3D electrodes, porous materials), integration of antennas or circuits conditioning on flexible substrate (eg contact lens) benefiting from a favorable context in life science via the INSERM U1101.
Regarding teaching duties, the candidate will be involved in the new school on topics related to the field of composites transformation, materials engineering, processes, with their computing environment modeling, acquisition of data taking into account sustainable development for health and environmental applications in the digital context of connected objects.
Within the frame of the teaching and research orientations defined by the new school, IMT Atlantique under the lead of the head of the optics department and in close collaboration with other departments and directorates of the school, the candidate will:
