The mission will take place at the Institute for Electronic, Microelectronic and Nanotechnologies (IEMN) in Villeneuve d'Ascq/France. IEMN is a join- research institute from CNRS (French Scientific Research Council), two universities, and an engineering school in the Hauts-de-France region. IEMN's microfabrication and characterizations facilities are at high-rank EU-level. IEMN is a 500+ people institute with 109 professors/associate-processors, 45 tenured CNRS researchers, 100+ engineers and administrative staffs, 150+ PhD students and 30+ post-docs and invited researchers. The lab is involved in many international research initiatives with 100+ foreign researchers at IEMN from 20+ countries abroad. IEMN's scientific activities includes broad domains from materials' physics, micro-wave structures, telecommunications, and acoustic instrumentations.
Artificial intelligence (AI) invasiveness in the Internet-of-Things (IoT) invites us rethinking the way we generate/exploit/store private data (health, behavioral patterns). Thanks to hardware computing, sensor arrays can self- calibrate by using device network's physics without having to share personal data externally. Moreover, some aspect of this new electronics have great advantage for energy consumption and low needs for external computing resources to create multi-sensor platforms that recognize new types of information, still not integrated on portable devices. In the framework of ANR's JCJC Sensation project, the proposed doctoral topic is on the conception and study of multilayered organic and electrochemical systems to realize electronic noses embedding detection and classification. The topic includes : - Clean-room fabrication of stackable conducting-polymer/electrolyte structures, micro-structuring them as networked devices and surface characterization. - Electrical and electrochemical characterization of them, as both elements and systems. - Evaluating them for classification to recognize various volatile organic compound patterns. The aim is to establish the proof of concept of a hardware demonstration for a device, capable of recognizing smell's pleasance without software.Web site for additional job details
