The Laboratory for Coordination Chemistry of the CNRS (www.lcc-toulouse.fr) is one of the best chemistry institutes in France. We have very well-equipped technical and analytical platforms at our disposal for the daily support of scientific work. With more than 70 researchers divided into 15 teams, research at the LCC places coordination chemistry as a central tool for tackling current issues related to climate change, energy transition and life sciences along 3 axes of investigation: catalysis, materials and health. More than 100 trainee, doctoral and post-doctoral students of different nationalities are present at the LCC, thus ensuring a stimulating work environment.
The researcher will be welcomed into the "Small Molecules Activation" (SMAc) team led by Drs. S. Bontemps and A. Simonneau.
