About Institut Jean Lamour

Institut Jean Lamour (IJL) is a joint research unit of the CNRS and the University of Lorraine and is one of the largest institutes in materials science and engineering in Europe. It covers the fields of materials, metallurgy, plasmas, surfaces, nanomaterials, and electronics. IJL has around 500 members, including 183 researchers, 91 engineers, technicians, administrative staff, 150 doctoral students, 30 post-docs, and welcomes about 80 interns every year. IJL collaborates with more than 150 industrial partners and its academic collaborations reach into 30 countries worldwide. Its exceptional instrumental park is spread over four sites, the main one being the new building located in the ARTEM campus in Nancy.

In the Solidification Group of IJL we study the formation of the structure during solidification of metal alloys, by numerical modeling and experimentation. We work on a wide spectrum of projects, integrating industrial and fundamental problems. Tight collaborations with the industry and with international academic partners are established and we are a core member of the Laboratory of Excellence DAMAS. The group currently comprises 5 permanent researchers, an engineer and 10 PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. Among other, we have strong expertise on numerical modeling and simulation from the scale of elementary physical phenomena up to the scale of industrial processes. We develop in-house codes and industrial software. Our main HPC tool is the regional computing center Explor.
