Within the framework of the SAD-NANOCAT project, the candidate will develop and characterize organometallic catalysts based on transition metals for the electrochemical reduction of CO2. In a second step, these complexes will be immobilized on electrode surfaces for heterogeneous studies.


- Synthesis of organometallic complexes based on Mn, Co and Cu.
- Spectroscopic and electrochemical characterization of the synthesized compounds.
- Immobilization of ligands and complexes on electrode surfaces.
- Study of the electrocatalytic activity of the different complexes towards the reduction of CO2


To be eligible, the candidate must have spent at least 18 months outside of France, from May 2017 and hold a PhD in chemistry or equivalent.

- Good experience in inorganic and organometallic synthesis techniques
- Good experience in spectroscopic characterization of organometallic compounds (NMR, IR, UV-vis).
- Knowledge in electrochemistry and surface modification would be a plus.
- Excellent written, verbal and interpersonal skills are desirable. French language skills are not required.

Interested candidates should submit a CV, the names and contact information of three references, and a one-page "expression of interest", indicating the candidate's interest in working on this particular project.

Work Context

The Laboratory of Chemistry, Electrochemistry and Analytical Chemistry (CEMCA, http://www.umr6521.cnrs.fr/) is a research unit affiliated to both the CNRS and the Université de Bretagne Occidentale (UBO), and is located on the Bouguen campus in Brest. The selected candidate will join under the supervision of Dr. Noémie Lalaoui the team "Chemistry and Electrochemistry: Bioinorganic and Molecular Materials (CIEl)" which specializes in bioinspired electrocatalysis.
