    European Structural Funds - FOVETH (acronym)

This postdoctoral position deals with formulation and characterization of polymer coatings. Within the frame of the FOVETH project (funded by Normandy Region Council and European Structural Funds - EDRF)  between Mulann industry and LCMT chemistry lab (UMR CNRS 6507), the postdoctoral fellow will have to set up innovative formulations of engravable coatings and to characterize their structural and functionalm properties. To reach this goal, he will first have to determine the specifications required for these formulations based on reverse engineering and bibliographic studies. He will then propose, formulate, characterize and develop new formulations matching these specifications. During the project (12 + 12 months) he will be assisted by interns and technical staff in order to ensure this project success.

Benefits

Date of recruitment: as soon as possible (ideally 01/01/2019)
