About Mohammed VI polytechnic University (UM6P)

Located at the heart of the future Green City of Benguerir, Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P), a higher education institution with international standards, is established to contribute to the development of Morocco and the African continent. Its vision is honed around research and innovation at the service of education and development. This unique nascent university, with its state-of-the-art campus and infrastructure, has woven a sound academic and research network, and its recruitment process is seeking high quality academics and professionals in order to boost its quality-oriented research environment in the metropolitan area of Marrakech.

 About MSN department

The Materials Science, Energy, and nano-engineering (MSN) is a department at Mohammed VI University that aims to makes use of innovative research and education in order to promote solution development and entrepreneurship (in the context of Moroccan and African challenges), while training the next generation top scientists, innovators and entrepreneurs.

Research at MSN is organized in 4 research tribes: Energy storage, Surface technology, Polymers and composites, and sustainable materials. With some 50 researchers and  PhD students  and  several  national  and  international  partners,  MSN  is  emerging  as  a  strong  actor  in  the  Moroccan  materials research scene. The department coordinates Master of science program in Materials science and engineering as well as several executive master programs.

 Description of the position

This Professor position is in materials, corrosion, and their related topics. The position is intended for a confirmed professor (M/F), with at least 5 years research experience after a PhD in materials, electrochemistry, and Corrosion Science. He/she is keen on multidisciplinary work at the interface of basic research and the industrial world with confirmed experience in leading collaborative projects and supervising undergraduate students and PhDs. The Candidate must have a teaching experience of graduate courses in corrosion or related subject and have experience in the synthesis and characterisation of materials for Corrosion Science.

The position offers:

  • A very competitive benefits package
  • A unique portfolio of research partners and collaborators
  • Highly motivated and rigorously selected PhD and Master students

Position Responsibilities and expertise:

The successful candidate must demonstrate potential to effectively develop, lead and maintain research programs. The candidate must have a strong commitment to excellence as he/she will be responsible for enhancing the quality of the research programs related to materials and corrosion engineering at MSN department.

Main tasks include fundamental & practical research and solving industrial corrosion and materials challenges, in addition exploring the environmental and design boundaries of conventional technologies, combining the academic and industry experience to find pragmatic solutions. The research interests of the candidate should be focused on:

  • Investigate the structure processing property performance relationships, corrosion initiation and propagation mechanisms, and high temperature oxidation.
  • Alloy steels and corrosion resistant alloys, localized corrosion of metals and alloys, and corrosion management.
  • Developing new alloys, corrosion monitoring techniques, and prediction of corrosion damage.
