Institut NEEL in Grenoble is opening a postdoctoral research position in the development of new hybrid colloidal materials for photo-catalysis applications. The researcher's mission will be to fabricate a new type of hybrid material consisting of semiconducting nanoparticles covalently attached to metal particles and to study the photophysical and photocatalytic properties of these new objects in colloidal suspension. The research will be conducted as part of the ANR PhotoredoQs (Quantum Dots as Redox Photocatalysts for Organic Synthesis) project.


- Synthesis of metallic nanoparticles with control of size
- Synthesis of ligands and functionalization of particle surfaces - Synthesis of hybrid materials
- Spectroscopic and photocatalytic characterizations of synthesized materials.


- Strong experience in the synthesis and characterization of colloids (DLS)
- Strong experience in spectroscopic characterization (absorbance, fluorescence, IR and Raman spectroscopy)
- Good knowledge in organic synthesis techniques

Work Context

Institut NEEL is a laboratory depending on CNRS and the University of Grenoble Alpes (UGA) active in fundamental research in condensed matter physics, enriched by interdisciplinary activities at the interfaces with chemistry, engineering and biology. The successful candidate will be attached to the OPTIMA team (optics and materials), one of whose specialties is the synthesis of nanomaterials for optical applications.
