The contract will be devoted to the development of coordination complexes based on polynuclear actinide architectures for catalytic activation of small molecules. The researcher will have to master new synthesis under controlled atmospheres (glove box) and to study the physico-chemical (potentiometry, electrochemistry) and spectroscopic properties (NMR, UV-Vis absorption, luminescence) of the newly developed complexes. Ultimately, the complexes will be used for catyalytic applications.
- Perform synthesis, purification and characterization of ligands and their complexes of actinide ions.
- Perform basic spectroscopic measurements (absorption and luminescence).
- Determine the electrochemical properties.
- Optimize the conditions for catalytic activation of small molecules.
- Strong knowledge in organic chemistry and basic characterization (NMR, IR, mass spectrometry)
- Strong knowledge in coordination chemistry and basic characterization
- English read, written and spoken at B2 level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages
- Bibliographic research
- Spectroscopy (absorption and emission of fluorescence)
- NMR of paramagnetic compounds
The Institut Pluridisciplinaire Hubert Curien (IPHC), a joint research unit under the joint supervision of the CNRS and the University of Strasbourg (UMR7178), is a multidisciplinary laboratory where research teams from different scientific backgrounds (ecology, physiology and ethology, chemistry and subatomic physics) develop very high-level programmes based on scientific instrumentation. The IPHC is structured into 4 departments and has a total staff of 393 (M/F), including 257 permanent staff (119 researchers and teachers and 138 engineers and technicians), 46 staff (M/F) on fixed-term contracts and 90 doctoral students.
The work of the post-doctoral fellow will take place in the synthesis team for analysis of the Institut Pluridisciplinaire Hubert Curien de Strasbourg (IPHC, UMR 7178) on the CNRS campus in Cronenbourg.
The team consists of 2 researchers, 3 teacher-researchers, a study engineer and 10 PhD students.
The work will take place in the team of Synthesis for analysis of the pluridisciplinary institute Hubert Curien (IPHC, UMR 7178) situated on the CNRS campus of Cronenbourg, close to Strasbourg (France). The researcher will be supervised by the responsible of the team, Dr Loïc Charbonnière, specialized in the coordination chemistry of f elements.
Constraints and risks
The work will be financed by an industrial contract and the recruited person will have to obey the corresponding rules, especially those concerning confidentiality of the results.
