School’s mission statement: “Strengthened by being part of the IMT and its territorial anchorage, IMT Mines Alès provides its students with the best opportunities to develop professionally and become responsible stakeholders in the development of the Nation by preserving the planet’s natural wealth”
Created 175 years ago, IMT Mines Alès today comprises 1200 students (200 are international students) and 350 members of staff. It has two campuses in Alès and is also located in Montpellier and Pau. Its students include generalist engineering students, specialised engineers (student apprentices), PhD students, Master students and specialised mastère students. The school also welcomes 500 students in continuous vocational training. The school has 3 research centers working in the areas of materials and civil engineering (C2MA), the environment and risks (LGEI), Artificial Intelligence and industrial and digital engineering (LGI2P). These entities have 80 permanent academics (40 of whom are habilitated), 20 technical personnels and 10 administrative and support staff, 80 PhD and post-doctoral employees who all annually produce 90 tier I publications and bring in 3 million Euros of research contracts (1 million Euros from direct contracts with companies). IMT Mines Alès is offering its own PhD diploma in 4 doctoral schools. It has 12 technology platforms and maintains 1600 company partnerships. Creativity is a strong characteristic that runs through all of the activities. The school was the first to create a business incubator in 1984 (200 companies created to date including 1000 jobs). The school offers rich and varied professional career paths: the researchers/teachers are able to take advantage of professional geographic mobility in the different schools of IMT and are able to take on functional responsibilities (dean, research director, international department, economic development etc.) as a part of their workload.
IMT Mines Alès has developed strong partnerships with the CNRS and the universities of Montpellier, Nîmes and Pau. In particular, the school centers have developed solid scientific collaboration with the research units of HSM, LMGC, IPREM, EUROMOV and CHROME. Joining these UMRs or the creation of new UMRs are in progress with these partners.
Within IMT Mines Alès, LGEI conducts research activities focused on three themes in the fields of industrial environment and risk. Each of the themes is supported by one of the 3 research teams:
The ERT research team works on integrated water management using a wide range of skills capitalizing on research know-how in biology, chemistry, sensor measurement and development, industrial ecology, territorial ecology, geology, geostatistics, statistics and hydro (geo) logical and statistical modeling.
The variety of these disciplines makes it possible to meet the major challenges related to water which require various skills (monitoring, deployment of sensor networks, modeling, management ...) allowing the team to integrate into multidisciplinary projects and to get involved in many circles and communities, thus amplifying its influence.
The ERT team is made up of 10 research and academic members of staff including 6 HDRs, 3 technicians/engineering staff, 4 post-docs and more than a dozen PhD students. It has thus reached a size allowing it to have a rich scientific dynamic and excel at the regional, national and international levels, in particular within the framework of international doctoral contracts in co-supervision.
Develop an innovative research in mineral resource exploitation (mines and quarries), and their social impacts, in the framework of long term industrial partnership, in order to minimise the impacts of these exploitations on the environment and society; use these acquired skills for teaching in the field of the exploitation of primary mineral resources, circular economy (recycled resources) and risks; support the head of ISERM teaching department (Subsoil Engineering and Mineral Resources Exploitation) for the management and development of the 2EM master course (Mining Exploitation and Environment), in the ISERM teaching department; keep a high degree of expertise to train our students at the highest level and contribute to the transfer of knowledge to businesses and society.
The person will be invited to present the actions that he/she plans to implement to best serve the mission statement of his/her position.
The teacher-researchers of the Institut Mines Télécom are responsible for designing the teaching programs, coordinating pedagogical teams and pedagogical innovation activities. The successful applicant will be called to participate, according to his/her skills, in teaching activities at the school that could include:
The successful applicant may also be required to participate in research, supervising on-site missions in the framework of action-learning developed by the school and tutoring students. The successful applicant will be required to teach a part of this training in English according to the methods of active teaching or in the form of a MOOC.
The recruited person will help the head of the ISERM department and 2EM Master course, in particular in the 2EM Master course, and will be part of the ISERM teaching team. In the team, he/she will be largely involved in the writing of the RNCP accreditation file of the 2EM master course, the national and international recruitment activities (liaise with geoscience courses), and the management of Master students (employed in the framework of the professional training scheme).
Concerning the teaching programmes, the recruited person will teach in his/her fields of expertise linked to extractive activities, mainly dealing with conceptual technic-economic studies, and mine or quarry feasibility studies, extraction methods and technics, as well as environmental impacts and risks associated with exploitation activities, for the IMT Mines Alès students, professional training, and continuous education (BADGE REX).
The supply and management of resources of a territory to ensure its durability and resilience requires not only technical skills, but also human and social science skills to integrate these supply chains in a territorial context, while taking into account social acceptability, land-use planning and regulatory aspects. This territorial approach is being put into practice in France at inter-municipal and regional levels, for the implementation of the laws of 7th August 2015 on the energy transition to green growth (NOTRe law). New organizational methods and dialogue with the various stakeholders is thus necessary. Both local authorities and companies are waiting for tools and methods to co-build sustainable and resilient territories, in particular through approaches based on the circular economy.
The skills required will aim to stimulate and integrate more specifically the multidisciplinary approach of the ERT team in circular economy (industrial and territorial ecology, environmental assessment), coupled with the fields of mineral resources (exploration and mining, geostatistics, rock mechanics) and water (metrology, modeling of hydrosystems). They aim to provide an integrated offer to companies and local authorities interested in the implementation of circular economy approaches for the management and sustainable preservation of these resources. As explained in the context, this offer must include a component of Human and Social Sciences "HSS" that allows to take into account the spatial, organizational and socio-economic specificities of territories to promote the social acceptability of new economic activities.
The ERT team is carrying out a scientific project aimed at joining the UMR Hydrosciences Montpellier, integrated into the ISITE MUSE. The recruited person will be part of the dynamics of the team, specifically sites of extractive activity in the South could constitute sites of joint work.
The successful applicant will be responsible for researching and setting up research contracts with industrial firms as well as building cases for funding from public bodies or international programs. As such, the applicant may be required to liaise with the contract partner, take charge of the scientific objectives defined in the project, lead the project team and monitor its progress, as well as the related communication.
On the other hand, the person should be able to understand the process of the commercial operation of research results to be able to identify opportunities that contribute to the cooperation between academic research centers, industrial research and production sectors.
Finally, the recruited person will have to carry out actions, in their field of scientific and technical skills, intended to support companies or the incubator of the school in order to promote the creation of spin offs and the development of technological companies.
The aforementioned skills will be implemented to contribute to the setting up of the two industrial chairs in embryo within the ERT team or in partnership with other partners: a “Mineral Industry and Territorial Dynamics“chair supported by IMT fund, and a second chair to be defined with UNICEM, historical partner of research and teaching of IMT Mines Alès. The ability to contribute significantly to the development of these chairs would be a very positive element.
The recruitment process is open in the specialization of mineral resources management and the circular economy.
The candidates must hold a PhD degree.
The recruited person must have experience in the field of industrial environment and hold a PhD in Mining, Geological Engineering, or Hydrogeology. One or more experiences abroad, or in a mining company after the PhD, would be positive differentiating elements. Experience in the field of geotechnics or hydrogeology would be very favourable complementary elements.
This position would be suitable for a dynamic person of a remarkable intellectual curiosity, having gained the experience of assembling research or collaborative projects. The incumbent will demonstrate autonomy, initiative, adaptability and rigor. He/She will have a real motivation for teaching and for pedagogy, especially for active pedagogy, as well as for partnership with companies. He/She will be organized and aware of security concerns.
He/She will also be expected to have real skills and experience in organization and teamwork: organization of meetings, action-planning and contribution to the drafting of administrative documents (activity reports, action plans, HCERES reports, etc.). A very good use of scientific English is essential.
The person recruited will be placed in the ERT research team. He/She will also be teaching in the ISERM and 2ER teaching departments.
