From November 18th, 2019 to January 31th, 2020
The Energy and Environment Solutions initiative (E2S UPPA) is a substantial, multi-year growth plan (https://e2s-uppa.fr/). Problem-oriented, inter-disciplinary and transverse research in Energy and Environment is pursed while putting the emphasis on either industry relevance or high visibility in leading academic journals. Interests span over all areas of Energy and Environment, including but not limited to optimization of geo-resources exploration and exploitation, optimization of energy storage, materials for renewable energy, composites for structural lightening, analytical and microbial environmental analysis for diagnostic and remediation, as well as evaluation of organisms adaptation to environmental stresses in evolving or controlled ecosystems, and social issues about energy and environment.
We seek outstanding candidates with a clear passion for research and who are excited by the opportunity to provide future solutions for energy and environment. Applications are invited from highly motivated candidates able to undertake a PhD project in all areas of Energy and Environment, connected to the research priorities of the laboratories hosted by the consortium:
The indicative list of innovative topics to be tackled by applicants is appended on the last page of this call.
Fellowships are opened to highly qualified graduates from any field of Energy and Environment, or from a closely related discipline. We wish to attract candidates who are noticeable by their scientific excellence and to whom we will offer scientific challenges that meet their expectations.
Number of Funding for PhD: Eight doctoral grants are offered over a 3 years period [monthly gross salary before taxes = 1870 €, which includes extra gratification for teaching duties - 32 hours per year].
Employer : Université de Pau et des Pays de l’Adour (UPPA)
Start : September, 2020 - Duration : 36 months

E2S will tackle this based on the quality of the available task force, among them:
UPPA is a leading research and teaching university, among the top 20 universities in France, located in the beautiful, culturally rich and highly diverse area of the Atlantic Pyrenees. E2S UPPA is the result of established collaborations with the main national research centers, i.e. the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA), the French National Institute for computer science and applied mathematics (INRIA), the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), the French Geological Survey (BRGM). These hosts several laboratories committed in research within the core areas of Energy and Environment.
Private research is a key asset of southern Aquitaine with Industrial R&D centers settled on its territory, which forms one of the major centers of R&D in France. In this way, E2S UPPA offers a research environment that benefits from a successful relation with private and public sector organizations that have leading positions, more particularly in the Energy and Environment areas. To address societal and/or technical challenges and contribute to industrial leadership, private research is thus a significant strength of the south of the region Nouvelle Aquitaine. Sound collaborations between UPPA and major companies are established on the territory with for instance Total, TIGF, Arkema, SAFRAN Helicopter Engines, Toray and Euralis just to cite a few.
UPPA is committed to building a diverse educational environment in agreement with the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.Continue reading
