CEMEF offers PhD Position in Micro-and nanostructural study of failure of microelectronic architectures for the space industry. The PhD students will study the materials processing in all their aspects: physics, chemical physics, thermal and mechanical analysis and numerical modeling. Applicant applying for the position must be a graduate engineer, a master of science or equivalent Bac +5. Partnership with Thales Alenia Space (TAS) is essential for the definition of test samples, environmental tests, to validate hermetic component solutions obtained by chip surface engineering. Skills and abilities in materials science, microtechnologies, mechanics are required. Gross Salary will be 24 k€ (by CNES).
Study Subject(s): PHD is provided in Micro-and Nanostructural study of Failure of Microelectronic Architectures for the Space Industry.
Course Level: This position is available for pursuing PhD level.

Scholarship Description: The Centre for Material Forming (CEMEF) is one of the research laboratories of MINES ParisTech (top executive French engineering school).CEMEF studies the materials processings in all their aspects: physics, chemical physics, thermal and mechanical analysis and numerical modeling. Researchers are on a large range of materials: metals, synthetic and bio polymers, food stuff, composites and nanocomposites, glass, ceramics. The objective is the development of non-hermetic radiofrequency (RF) and low-frequency (LF) components for application in space. Beyond normalized failure tests, basic studies are needed on the physical – chemical mechanisms of material degradation and performance loss or integrity: micro-cracks, delamination, diffusion, formation of dendritic structures inducing short-circuit. These mechanisms may involve residual stresses (mechanics) as well as microstructure gradients (materials). The limits of normalized tests are in the acceleration being obtained through increased temperature: this approach neglects the impact of overheating on residual stress (thermo-mechanical effect) as well as changes in the microstructure. In line with this, a study is needed on the relationship between matter transport and residual or applied stress gradients, a complex but rich subject. Other important parameters will be current intensity and temperature (through their impact on atomic diffusion).
