The CNRS/PROMES laboratory is looking for a candidate interested and highly motivated for applying for a permanent position as a researcher at CNRS (French National Center for Scientific Research). Two fields of research are targeted by PROMES for this position, both related to concentrated solar energy:
- Conversion of solar energy into heat and power using concentrating technologies. This covers system analysis including economic approach, new optical designs, heat transfers, solar receivers design, thermodynamic cycles… New approaches combining several topics like CSP + CPV are eligible.
- Materials under extreme conditions, thermochemical conversion and solar fuels
The application concerns young persons graduated with a PhD. Persons who are currently in a post-doc position are preferred. The selection is based on a competition between candidates with various fields and projects of research. It is organized by CNRS at the national level. In general, no position is directed to a specific laboratory, like PROMES laboratory. However, “Thermal Solar” has been selected this year by CNRS as one of its priority themes.
