Full Professor position at ESPCI

27th February 2024 - 31st July 2024

ESPCI Paris-PSL is recruiting a Professor in the field of polymer physics and soft matter in the broadest sense.
Since the days of Georges Champetier and Pierre-Gilles de Gennes, the ESPCI (https://www.espci.psl.eu/fr/) has been a center of excellence for polymers and soft matter in the center of Paris. It is constantly adapting its activities with a recent focus on sustainability issues.
Research profile: The research will take place in the ESPCI Soft Matter Science and Engeenring et laboratory (SIMM, UMR CNRS 7615, https://www.simm.espci.fr/). This laboratory is unique in that its research activities bring together physicists, physical chemists and mechanics. The subjects covered, often related to industrial processes, are all those that mobilize the fundamental knowledge of soft matter, such as rheology, flows, wetting, adhesion, mechanical properties, including fracture and adhesion, but always in relation to the physical chemistry of the system. The candidate’s activity and expertise profile is therefore broad, but the core competence is that of soft matter physics, with a strong ability to integrate into multi-disciplinary research activities linked to chemistry, physical chemistry, mechanics and industrial processes in the broadest sense.
Teaching profile: As a Professor, you will mainly teach in the engineering cycle at ESPCI Paris-PSL, and in part in PSL masters programs.
In the 2nd year of the curriculum, you will be asked to propose an introductory course in the physics and physical chemistry of polymers and soft matter, focusing on structure-property relationships. This physics course should fit in with existing courses in polymer chemistry and physical chemistry.
Requirements: PhD in Physics or Materials Science. Significant research experience in one of the fields defined in the research profile. A reasonable command of the French language is required.
Timetable: Position opening not yet determined, but probably early April. Employement is expected to begin at the start of the 2024 academic year.
Contact : Jean-Baptiste d’Espinose <jean-baptiste.despinose@espci.fr>, deputy directeur of the SIMM laboratory.
