About UM6P:  

Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P) is an internationally oriented institution of higher learning, that is committed to an educational system based on the highest standards of teaching and research in fields related to the sustainable economic development of Morocco and Africa. UM6P is an institution oriented towards applied research and innovation. On a specific focus on Africa, UM6P aims to position these fields as the forefront and become a university of international standing.  

More than just a traditional academic institution, UM6P is a platform for experimentation and a pool of opportunities, for students, professors and staff. It offers a high-quality living and study environment thanks to its state-of-the-art infrastructure. With an innovative approach, UM6P places research and innovation at the heart of its educational project as a driving force of a business model.

In its research approach, the UM6P promotes transdisciplinary, entrepreneurship spirit and collaboration with external institutions for developing up to date science and at continent level in order to address real challenges.

All our programs run as start-ups and can be self-organized when they reach a critical mass. Thus, academic liberty is promoted as far as funding is developed by research teams.

The research programs are integrated from long-term research to short-term applications in linkage with incubation and start-up ecosystems.


About LIMSET :

LIMSET, Laboratory of Inorganic Materials for Sustainable Energy Technologies, is formed by a multidisciplinary group of scientists and engineers focused to develop innovative training and research related to sustainable energy. The laboratory is leading research in design, development, and optimization of the next generation of inorganic materials for their application in different processes and technologies of sustainable energy. LIMSET is conducting research in a wide range of applied sciences, aiming to contribute to the competitiveness of Moroccan and African companies. The current research of the entity includes activities and innovative projects, such as: (a) cost-effective thermal energy storage for industrial waste heat recovery and Power-to-Heat applications, (b) all-solid batteries for future electric vehicles, and (c) innovative materials and processes for the production and storage of green hydrogen and green ammonia.


Job Description :

The University of Mohammed VI polytechnic (UM6P) invites applications for a research and education fellow position in the area of the production of green hydrogen, with an emphasis on the design, synthesis, and characterization of advanced inorganic materials that will be used to improve the efficiency of the emerging electrolysis and water splitting technologies at high temperature. The laboratory of inorganic materials for sustainable energy technologies (LIMSET) is engaged in pioneering research and development projects that aiming to promote the invention and improvement of green hydrogen technologies to support the national and international strategies. We are therefore seeking a talented and highly motivated candidate to join our team who will be engaged in the development of advanced inorganic materials for their use in the emerging electrolysis and water splitting technologies at high temperatures.
