Description de l’UM6P

Located at the heart of the future Green City in Benguerir, Mohammed VI Polytechnic University (UM6P), a higher education institution with an international standard, is established to serve 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.

Description de l’entité de recherche

The High Throughput Multidisciplinary Research (HTMR) laboratory aims for an interdisciplinary, diverse and cross-cutting approach to an entrepreneurial ecosystem directly related to its industrial and socio-economic environment in Morocco and Africa. HTMR provides highly automated and parallel approaches to the development of new materials and processes. HTMR allows scientists from all UM6P research community to develop automated workflows that ultimately increase precision and efficiency and reduces the time and cost involved in their development pathways. The wide expertise developed by the researchers working at the HTMR, plays a pivotal link between the initial proof of concepts and the consolidation of the results and their viability. Thus, the validation is monitored through design of experiments and optimization of workflows much more rapidly than conventional approaches.

The HTMR is a 100% Applied Sciences research laboratory, and is setting up its first targeted research projects around:

  • Metallurgy & anti-corrosion materials
  • Phosphates, intelligent fertilizers, silicon and fluoride-based materials
  • Energy storage (Electrolyte, Electrodes...)
  • Biomaterials and Industrial By-Products

Characterizations and analyses

Description d¢emploi

Casting is a manufacturing method by which, molten metal is poured into a mould cavity that has a certain shape; upon solidification, the metal adopts the shape of the mould. It is one of the oldest methods to obtain parts with the desired shape from materials that can melt and consequently, it has been deeply studied. Nevertheless, the casting process of a novel alloy is always challenging and requires a deep understanding of the parameters affecting the casting phenomenon of a specific alloy. This thesis project aims at optimizing the sand casting process at the industrial scale of a novel steel developed to be abrasion and corrosion-resistant.  



Specific objectives for the PhD candidate:


  1. Assist the scaling-up (from lab scale to industry) of the novel alloy   
  2. Optimization by DOE of the different parameters influencing the casting process
  3. Characterization of the microstructure, composition and type of phases of the as-cast material
  4. Evaluation of the mechanical properties
