InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateSunday, December 01, 2019
Description:

Dongguan University of Technology (DGUT), Dongguan, South China
in partnership with
Le Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM), Paris, France

Engineering Lecturers, 261600-417720RMB (annual salary, depending on qualifications and 
experience) + holiday bonuses + other benefits

Background
Dongguan University of Technology (DGUT) was founded in April 1992 and was ratified by the 
Ministry of Education in March 2002 to start conferring bachelor’s degrees. Dr Yang Zhenning, 
Nobel Laureate in Physics, is its honorary president. DGUT is the first university in Dongguan, 
with two campuses – Songshan Lake campus and Guancheng campus – and around 15,000 
students. DGUT is working hard to establish itself as an important base for training talent and 
original scientific research, as well as to become a forerunner in the transformation of Chinese 
technical education. 
The Conservatoire national des arts et métiers (CNAM) in Paris, founded in 1794, is a doctoral-
degree-granting higher education establishment and grande école in engineering operated by 
the French government, which is dedicated to providing education and conducting research 
for the promotion of science and industry. With nearly 150 educational centres in France, and 
a presence in many other countries around the world, CNAM offers adults of all ages the tools 
they need in the workplace. Nearly 100,000 pupils, employees, students and job-seekers 
participate in the CNAM’s educational programmes every year. 
As a result of a partnership agreement between DGUT and CNAM, the DGUT-CNAM Institute 
(DCI) was opened at DGUT’s Guancheng Campus in 2017. The DCI is based on the long 
history, mature model, and outstanding contributions of CNAM in the field of engineer training, 
combined with DGUT’s focus on the rapid development of science and engineering to serve 
the economic industry of Guangdong province. The DCI is the result of the integration and 
optimisation of education and teaching concepts from both China and France, which aims to 
prepare graduates for the global engineering requirements of the future.
Location
Dongguan is a famous modern manufacturing metropolis, awarded Tier 1 city status in 2017, 
which is located in Guangdong province in southern China (around 50 miles north of Hong 
Kong, 35 miles east of China’s third-largest city, Guangzhou). The city has previously been 
awarded ‘The Most Charming City in China’, and ‘The Most Economically Dynamic City in 
China’, and it is currently ranked 18th in Foreign Policy’s list of the most dynamic cities in the 
world. Dongguan is also recognised by the United Nations Environmental Programme as an 
‘international garden city’, with five natural reserves, 10 forest parks, 13 wetland parks, and 
over 1,000 parks and greenways. The city is considered a home for Cantonese culture, and 
particularly for Cantonese opera. However, the population of the city is highly diverse, with 
around 75% of the population coming from other parts of China or overseas. The city has a 
subtropical climate, with an average temperature of 22 Celsius throughout the year. The 
average cost of living in Dongguan is much lower than in most western cities, as can be seen 
on this website - https://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/in/Dongguan-China.

Abstract : 
This proposal concerns numerical studies on high quality nanodiamonds formation
in miwrowave assisted plasma. the proposed work consist of understanding the
mechanisms that governs nanoparticles (NPs) formation and growth to improve the
process using numerical simulations. 
   
Context: 
The unique properties of nanodiamonds finds application in wide range of areas
such as drug delivery, biomarkers, tribological applications and quantum
technologies. Nanodiamonds with defects such as N-vacancy (NV centers) have
immense potential towards development of quantum technologies. However,
producing high quality nanodiamonds with high purity, high crystallinity,
photostability and size control remains challenging.  Recently,  PEMA group at
LSPM have demonstrated production of large number of diamond particles with high
crystallinity and small sizes (50 to 200 nm) by tuning the operating conditions
of the MW assisted plasma reactor used originally for growth of CVD diamond.
Nonetheless, despite the encouraging results obtained so far, many applications
requires diamond NP’s with narrow size distributions and a tight control of the
average size in the nanometer range. Therefore the process needs to be optimized
to obtain high quality nanodiamonds with size control. For this purpose, it is
necessary to understand how the different gas phase elementary processes, transport 
phenomena and plasma-surface interaction involved in the deposition plasma
affect the nucleation of nano-diamonds. It is in particular necessary to
understand the different pathways for the formation of nano-diamonds and other
allotropes of carbon as high quality of nano-diamond with size control is
desirable. This understanding of nanodiamond formation will guide in production
of NV-centers using Nitrogen doping. 

Nanodiamonds growth takes place in MW hydrogen-methane plasmas which are complex
media containing electrons, neutral and charged molecular species, large
clusters which could possibly nucleate into solid carbon nanostructures such as
nanodiamonds, graphene, fullerene and amorphous carbon. These plasmas remain
poorly understood and are governed by diverse phenomena occurring on wide scales
ranging between the molecular size, particle sizes to the size of the plasma
i.e. gas phase collisional processes, plasma-surface interaction processes,
aerosol dynamics, interaction between microwave and the dusty plasma etc. The
ultimate objective of the modelling group is to build a predictive
multi-dimensional self-consistent fluid model with interaction between MW-plasma
and particles.


Work description
The post-doc will mainly focus on understanding the different phenomena that
govern the nanoparticle formation and plasma evolution through modelling and
comparison with experiments. The objective of the modelling work is to accompany
the experimental team to optimize the process of NPs fabrication and control.
The candidate will be involved in the development of the chemistry scheme
resulting in the NP nucleation and particle growth. For this purpose, a simple
0D/1D plasma model [1] coupled with aerosol model that follow particle
transport and growth will be used to predict the formation of carbon NPs in the
plasma. Extensive studies will be performed to understand the phenomena that
govern the NPs formation and size and quality which are poorly understood and is
critical in the development of several carbonated NPs processes and is expected
to produce publications interesting for large audience.  

Opportunities
First Although the candidate will be working with the modelling group, he/she
will carry out extensive interaction with the experimental group  that produces
(nano)diamond in MW plasmas.  
The results of this study will also be used to describe a reduced scheme for
particle nucleation and growth that could be implemented by the group in the
in-house 2 dimensional self-consistent model constructed for MW assisted plasmas
for H2-methane plasmas [2, 3].
The candidate will also have the opportunity to interact with the molecular
dynamics team of the lab who are involved in calculating collision cross-sections. 



Requirements
1) The candidate should have a background in fluid dynamics / heat transfer and
chemistry. Knowledge of aerosol dynamics is a plus.
2) The candidate is expected to have fair programming skills, preferably Fortran.
3) The candidate should be capable of carrying out research independently and be
able to regularly present his/her results to other collaborating groups.

Duration of postdoc
The duration of postdoc is for a period of 1 year with a Gross salary of around
2600 € (2100 € net) based on the experience.
