Post-doctoral Researcher (Rhodia / CNRS)                
Contributor:C Lorthioir


        Category:Solid-state NMR

        "Local Dynamics in Polyamides, studied by Solid-State NMR" East Paris Institute of Chemistry and
 Materials Science (UMR 7182 CNRS / University of East Paris - Créteil), Thiais, France A 12
 months postdoctoral position is opened in the framework of a collaboration between the CNRS/Rhodia
 joint Research Lab "Laboratoire Polymères et Matériaux Avancés" (LPMA, UMR 5268), Lyon, France,
 and the CNRS/University of East Paris - Créteil joint Research Lab "East Paris Institute of
 Chemistry and Materials Science" (ICMPE, UMR 7182), Thiais, France. The postdoctoral researcher will
 develop his/her research activities at ICMPE, Thiais, in the department "Complex Polymer Systems"
 and will be co-supervised by Cédric Lorthioir (ICMPE) and Paul Sotta (LPMA). Rhodia is a global
 specialty chemicals manufacturer with 5 multidisciplinary Research & Development Centers worldwide.
 Lyon is the main Rhodia R&D Center for Europe. CNRS is the main governmental research organization
 in France, involved in all scientific fields. Partially polar polymers are very sensitive to
 water. For example a dry semi-crystalline polymer like polyamide (PA) can absorb up to 12 wt% water
 in saturated humid atmosphere (Relative Humidity = RH 100). The water content drastically affects
 the glass transition temperature, which may be shifted from 80°C in the dry state down to -10°C in
 the humid state, and therefore the mechanical and other properties. The purpose of this work is to
 combine advanced Solid-State NMR approaches to investigate the molecular dynamics in polyamides.
 Selective Solid-State NMR experiments, performed as a function of temperature, will allow
 identifying the specific types of motions corresponding to the various relaxation processes observed
 in these materials, in the amorphous phase. The mobility and mobility gradients in the amorphous
 phase located in the vicinity of the crystallites will be characterized by selective excitation of
 the crystalline signal combined with 1H spin diffusion. Model polyamide materials with a variable,
 controlled crystallinity will be considered. The dynamics will be studied both in the dry state and
 in the presence of various amounts of water. These experiments will clarify the mechanisms by which
 water plasticizes polyamide. The position is to start any time. It is opened to an experimental
 physicist/physico-chemist, with a PhD thesis in the field of polymer physics or chemical physics. An
 experience in Solid-State NMR, if not mandatory, will be highly appreciated. Gross salary is about
 2000 Euros/month. To apply, please send an application letter together with a detailed CV and
 contact details of two academic referees to either of the following contact persons: Paul
