    Requirements

    We are particularly looking for a candidate experienced in advanced TEM/STEM characterization and data analysis/simulation. STEM-HAADF and ABF will be of concern to determine the strain state and the ferroelectric state (via location of heavy cations and light O anions atomic columns with few tens picometers precision) from the collected images. Knowledge of such data treatment is recommended together with extraction of EELS elemental/phase maps. Skill in FIB specimen preparation will be appreciated but is not an essential prerequisite and can be taught at CEMES. Knowledge of the physics of ferroelectrics and/or microelectronics devices is a definite plus.

    The essential following items will be considered:
    • Experience in the use of TEM, STEM and EELS
    • Experience in the use of codes like MATLAB, Python etc...
