The recruited candidate will work on deciphering the reaction mechanism of proton reduction by dithiolato-bridged heterobimetallic NiFe complexes.
For that purpose, quantum chemical tools mainly based on Density Functional Theory (DFT) will be used to understand the catalytic activity of the bio-inspired complexes by unraveling the key-steps of their reaction mechanism.
- Solid background in quantum chemistry (PhD) with a special interest for bioinorganic chemistry
- Good knowledge in electrochemistry and spectroscopy will be appreciated
The NiFemim project aims at developing bio-inspired hydrogen evolution catalysts to contribute to the full understanding of the catalytic mechanism of the NiFe hydrogenases. The main objective of NiFemim is to develop efficient mimics of this enzyme that model the structure and function of the active site as well as its reactivity.
Constraints and risks
This project, funded by the ANR/DFG program, is an international cooperation between France and Germany which requires staff able to handle computational approaches for the modeling part in order to explore the field in an efficient way within a reasonable time. The present proposal is a 12 month-postdoctoral funding starting during the first semester of 2019.
