The objective of this project is to develop new synthetic methods in organofluorine chemistry using organic synthesis, organometallic catalysis and cycloaddition reactions. The candidate will work under the direction of Dr. Vincent Bizet and will work on several collaborative projects. The candidate must therefore have a real team spirit, a strength of proposal and be able to bring additional know-how.
The candidate will be in charge of carrying out the main project (project financing), as well as additional projects in connection with the main project and carried out in collaboration. Skills in the synthesis and characterization of organic compounds are essential prerequisites for carrying out these projects. The candidate will also participate in the collective tasks of the laboratory, in the various seminars and conferences organized.
We are looking for a candidate with a PhD in organic chemistry and passionate about organic synthesis, with excellent theoretical and practical knowledge, good communication skills (writting and orally), as well as organizational skills. Strong involvement in several projects is expected as well as the ability to supervise students.
The Laboratory and the team welcome students of all levels from France but also from several continents; the candidate must therefore have a real team spirit and an interest in support and collaborative work with colleagues from other backgrounds. Fluency in English at least is essential.
The candidate will join the Biomolecules, Synthesis and Methods (BSM) team of the Molecular Innovation and Applications Laboratory (LIMA – UMR CNRS 7042, lima.unistra.fr) in Mulhouse and will work under the direction of Dr. Vincent Bizet. Our research themes focus on the development of original synthetic methods and new reaction concepts with applications in the chemistry of natural products, life sciences or materials science. LIMA is the largest laboratory dedicated to research in molecular chemistry in Alsace and its objectives are to develop new innovative synthetic methods, to validate therapeutic strategies and to apply them in fields such as bioorganic and pharmaceutical chemistry, eco-responsible chemistry and materials chemistry.
