The European Project Assistant (EPA) will play a key role in the management of the project and will be part of the research team that coordinates the project. Alongside the scientific coordinator, the EPA will on the one hand ensure the general administration of the consortium, and on the other will collaborate with the training staff of the research team.
-Coordination of the project: to assist the coordinator in monitoring the work plan; to facilitate exchanges between partners; to follow the production of deliverables and participate in the writing of activity reports.
-Financial management: to monitor expenses; to coordinate the preparation and submission of financial reports in close collaboration with the laboratory secretariat and the CNRS Regional Delegation Occitanie Ouest DR14 in agreement with Interreg-POCTEFA directives.
-Participation to the research: from his/her chemist formation in the field of metal-based catalysis, the EPA will be involved in specific experimental projects in direct connection with the doctoral student of the coordinator team.
-Formation in Chemistry (Engineer/Master...)
-Good knowledge of English, oral and written (language of communication of the consortium)
-Knowledge of French
-Experienc in managing scientific projects, teamwork
-Good scientific and non-scientific communication skills
-Knowledge on management tools will be appreciated
-Qualities required: sense of thoroughness and organization; reactivity and autonomy; writing skills and spirit of synthesis.
The LHFA (http://lhfa.cnrs.fr/index.php/en/) is a joint laboratory of the National Center for Scientific Research and the University Toulouse 3 - Paul Sabatier (UMR 5069) in Toulouse (France), constituted by 5 research teams (16 researchers and professors, 9 technical engineers and administrative staff; ca.40 doctoral students, post-docts and master students per year). Research activities focus on molecular chemistry of p-block elements of, with transversal actions in the fields of organometallic chemistry, metallic nanoparticles, catalysis and polymers, including mechanistic studies. The SYMAC research team, led by M. Gómez and working on the design of metal-based (nano)catalysts for innovative processes, is interested in the application of catalytic materials in synthesis, involving a wide range of transformations, in particular one-pot multi-step processes (sequential/tandem processes). In the last years, we have been interested in alternative solvents, with the concern of working under "homogeneous" conditions in an environment which can allow the stabilization of metallic species and their immobilization (ionic liquids, glycerol) and consequently promoting an easy recycling of the catalytic phase. We also develop original functionalized supports capable of immobilizing metallic nanoparticles. Understanding the observed reactivity is at the heart of our researches, leading us to in-depth mechanistic studies through reaction monitoring using different techniques (ReactIR, NMR, EPR, SAXS).
The LHFA offers a very dynamic and international framework (ca. 40% of foreign students), with cutting-edge research. The different teams have (inter)national collaborations, both academic and with industrial partners. The LHFA takes part in the organization of (inter)national conferences as well as Summer Schools, and it is involved in various dissemination activities.
Constraints and risks
There are no particular risks or constraints for this job, other than the standard ones corresponding to an experimental laboratory of synthesis and catalysis. General and specific safety trainings (related to the work to be developed) are implemented.
