Le (la) candidat(e) devra avoir une très bonne pratique de l’interface physique-biologie, des compétences en imagerie du vivant et si possible en microfabrication. Il (elle) participera au montage et au suivi des projets interdisciplinaires, au développement des outils et modèles biologiques, des techniques d’imagerie (multiphotonique, SPIM, …) et des microsystèmes.
This research program aims at the development of integrated photocatalytic micro-structured devices for the continuous synthesis of high value-added organic molecules, such as active pharmaceutical ingredients, through the efficient in situ generation and handling of singlet oxygen. This project is multidisciplinary in essence and requires regular interactions with Chemical Engineers and Physicists.
The applicant must have a degree in (organic) chemistry, and an interest for applied chemistry and physics. The successful applicant is highly motivated and has good problem solving, troubleshooting, and analytical skills.
He/she has a strong background in organic chemistry. He/she is expected to get acquainted with chemical engineering. He/she will contribute to the synthesis and characterization of organic photosensitizers, as well as the development and the optimization of photocatalytic oxygenations on model substrates in microreactors. He/she will contribute to the development of new continuous flow technologies for organic transformations. He/she is expected to have excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
The successful candidate will be enrolled in the PhD program at the University Liège (see for more information: https://www.ulg.ac.be/cms/c_25325/en/doctoral-student).
4 year (fixed term) stipend within the frame of a Joint Research Action (ARC 15/19-05) at the University of Liège. The successful candidate will join a young, dynamic and multidisciplinary research team.
Interested applicants should send a brief description of research interests, a CV and the names of 3 references to:
Jean-Christophe M. Monbaliu, PhD.
CINaM is a leading French nanoscience research center, affiliated to CNRS (French National Research Centre) and situated in the Parc National des Calanques on the campus of Luminy of Aix-Marseille University. Research at the Institute is supported by a range of cutting-edge core facilities. It is already highly interdisciplinary, incorporating different fields of physics and chemistry, and wants to strengthen its biophysics activity.

Context: Flow of non-brownian suspension is encountered in many fields such as soil science, cement and concrete technologies, proppants. For all these applications, the particles are suspended in a fluid that can be non-newtonian, and the flow occurs at different scales over a large range of velocities. In the dilute regime, the flow of suspension is well understood since the pioneering works of Einstein (1905). In contrast, flow of concentrated suspensions is still a topic of interest. In this regime, shocks between particles and short-range forces give rise to heterogeneous distribution of particles in the flow (Ovarlez et al. 2008), due to migration. Multiple studies have shown that jamming may arise when confinement becomes too high (Goyon et al. 2008, Chaudhuri et al. 2012). The goal of this project is to develop an experimental approach aiming at the characterization and optimization of the flow properties of suspensions in confined model geometries. The jamming of particles suspended in a viscoelastic fluid will be studied in order to evaluate to which extent jamming affects the suspension flow in a given medium. The effect of particle properties will also be investigated. Microfluidic devices will be set up, with various size and channel networks.
