Open position: assistant professor ("Maître de Conférences") on molecular materials and nanomaterials

The Molecular Material team of CRM2, UMR 7036 (LCM3B), is recognized for its pioneering research in crystallography of photo switchable molecular materials (see for example the invited review Z. Krist. 2008, 223, 235-249, special issue).

One of the research activities is to focuss on crystalline and/or nanocriytalline magnetic molecular materials thermo or photo excitable to produce optical storage materials.

The "Maître de Conférences" (Assistan Professor), physicist or physico-chemist with a large crystallographic background, will be in charge of elaboration, magnetic, optic and structural characterizations of these nano or film molecular magnetic materials.

Experience with synchrotron and neutron facilities is welcome.

Teaching:
Basic physics and physical chemistry, L1 - L2
Material sciences, M1 - M2
Crystallography, M1 - M2
