In this Postdoctoral project, the objective is to develop novel classes of luminescent chiral organic systems and investigate their circularly polarized emission within organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs).
The postdoctoral fellow will contribute to the design, synthesis and photophysical characterizations of the targeted molecules. More precisely, he/she will be in charge of elaborating the synthetic strategy to efficiently obtained the desired products as well as their complete photophysical studies using classical spectroscopies (absorption, luminescence) and electrochemical method (cyclic voltammetry). He/She will be involved in the redaction of reports on the advancement of the project and of scientific publications. The postdoctoral fellow will also contribute to the scientific animation of the group by the supervision of master and PhD students.
The applicant must hold a PhD in organic chemistry with a strong expertise in synthesis and photophysical characterizations of pi-conjugated molecular materials. Fluency in spoken and written both English and French is a requirement to present the obtained results in project meetings and scientific conferences and to write scientific publications. He/she should be highly motivated by experimentation and should possess organizational skills as well as the ability to work both independently and as part of a team.
This PhD position is open at the “Institut des Sciences Chimiques de Rennes” (ISCR – UMR 6226 CNRS) within the Organometallics: Materials and Catalysis team and under the supervision of Dr. Ludovic Favereau and Dr. Grégory Pieters within a ANR project (French agence nationale de la recherche, iChiralight, ANR-19-CE07-0040).
