The post-doctoral fellow will join the SAMS research group at the Institut Charles Sadron in Strasbourg. He/She will work under the supervision of Prof. Nicolas Giuseppone (head of the research group) in the framework of the FET-OPEN European project "Magnify" in collaboration with groups in Italy and the Netherlands. The scientific project aims at developing the next generation of molecular machine-based artificial muscles for robotic systems.
The post-doctoral fellow will develop the synthesis of new electrochemically-active rotaxanes and ensure their polymerization according to methodologies developed within the SAMS research group and their collaborators. Characterization of molecules and polymers will also constitute an important part of the work. We expect that the data obtained during the contract will lead in fine to the development of new electroactive contractile polymer materials.
Applicants must hold a PhD in organic and/or supramolecular chemistry and proven research skills evidenced by a least one publication related to the thematic of the project. Another essential criteria for the position is a good knowledge regarding the characterization of organic molecules. An experience in soft matter characterization and/or electrochemical studies would be an asset. Finally, regarding the European framework of the project, fluency in spoken and written English is a requirement along with an ability to work in a team.
The Institut Charles Sadron (UPR22) of Strasbourg is a research unit affiliated to the CNRS that is recognized worldwide for its expertise in polymeric materials and self-assembled systems. The SAMS research group, that is also affiliated to the University of Strasbourg, aims at studying and understanding self-assembling processes in order to develop the next generation of so-called "smart" materials. The group has all knowledge and technical facilities necessary to develop such a challenging project. For more information, please have a look at our website: http://sams.ics-cnrs.unistra.fr/
