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 Franco-German Liebniz project "liebniz" in collaboration with groups in Germany. The scientific project aims at manipulating cellular mecanotransduction using molecular motors.
The post-doctoral fellow will develop the synthesis of molecular motors and the formation of motor/polymer systems according to methodologies developed within the SAMS research group and their collaborators. Characterization of molecules and polymer/motor conjugates will also constitute an important part of the work. We expect that the data obtained during the contract will allow in fine to manipulate cellular mecanotransduction using molecular motors
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 would be an asset. Finally, regarding the Franco-German 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/en/
