Position of Junior Professor Chair (Tenure Track) at INSA Lyon (PDF téléchargeable)

This hiring proposal takes place in the framework of strategy of 2030 ambition program at INSA of Lyon (https://www.insa-lyon.fr/en/ ). INSA of Lyon is the first post-bac engineering school in France (https://etudiant.lefigaro.fr/etudes/ecoles-ingenieurs/classement-post-bac/).

Position Description:
The successful candidate will lead an internationally recognized research program in sustainable engineering and design Position Description interdisciplinary research and teaching. The objective of this Junior Professor Position is to combine scientific excellence, innovation in order to teach and to answer to societal challenges such as industrial ecology, circular economy/engineering, life cycle analysis applied (if possible) to polymer materials. The recruited scientist must develop a systemic sight of engineer : How thinking and working beyond his own disciplinary domain to find relevant solutions to key societal issues in collaboration with other expertise fields. This position will be in strong relationship with the Bioloop CNRS Prime team involving Polymer Material Enginnering, IMP laboratory from chemistry Institute of CNRS and Triangle and Gredeg laboratories from social and human sciences CNRS Institute. This transdiciplinary team includes all the partners of the circular economy of polymers materials. The candidate must have the capacity of him (her)self opening and working at the interface between polymer material science and human sciences. A strong skill in life cycle analysis will be preferred.

The successful applicant has research and teaching expertise in this areas but not restricted to the following list:
-Prospective life-cycle assessment (LCA) and techno-economic assessment of emerging/next-generation technologies for solving sustainability challenges related to energy systems, built infrastructure and transportation, or processing and manufacturing;
-Design and operate a closed loop supply chain
-Efficient material flows and circular economy
-Methods and frameworks for advancing social LCA for considering the distributional and social implications of engineering and design towards creative decision-making.

Qualifications And Education Requirements:
Candidates must have a Ph.D., with a first degree in engineering and an international background (> 3 years of postdoctoral or research associate position). Evidence of outstanding research achievements or research potential, is crucial. Moreover, an the candidates should have her(his) ability to teach and supervise.
