An ANR-funded post-doctoral position of 12 months is available in organometallic chemistry of oxophilic metals.
The use of non-toxic and earth-abundant electrophilic organometallics is a powerful and versatile approach for the mediation of diverse stoichiometric and catalytic transformations.
This project primarily aims the synthesis and reactivity study of novel classes of low-coordinated Mg(II) and Ca(II) organocations with enhanced electrophilicity. The reactivity of these cations with small molecules of current interest (CO2, H2, unsaturated substrates) will be studied, including their potential utility as catalysts in hydro-funtionalization and hydrogenation catalysis.


The post-doctoral researcher will develop the synthesis and characterization of di-cations of the type Mg2+, Ca2+ and [(L)Mg]2+, along with the preparation of the associated weakly coordinating anions. Access to two-coordinated mono-cations of the type [(L)Mg–X]+ is also planned.
The researcher will also be involved in the presentation and writing of scientific reports on project progress and in the associated publications. Participation to the group scientific life and students supervising are also expected.


- PhD in organometallic chemistry, in depth knowledge of organometallic chemistry of derived reactivity; an excellent knowledge of the handling of air-sensitive organometallic complexes is required.
- Technical and scientific rigor, strong motivation, scientific curiosity
- Ability to work as part of a team
- Knowledge of French or English

Work Context

The work will be carried out within the Strasbourg Institute of Chemistry (UMR 7177; web: https://institut-chimie.unistra.fr ), a joint Unistra-CNRS research unit whose research axes are mainly focused on molecular and supramolecular chemistry. Specifically, the project will be developed within the SRCO team ("Synthesis, Reactivity and Organometallic Catalysis") led by Dr. Samuel Dagorne.
