Thématique scientifique : Astrochemistry is a fundamental science aiming at understanding the origin of organic and mineral matter in astrophysical environments. It implements all the theoretical and experimental components of chemistry by pushing the expertise to their extremes due to the complexity of the investigated environments. Astrochemistry participates to the understanding of the formation of stars and their planetary systems, as well as the conditions that allowed the emergence of life on Earth
Mots clés : Interstellar chemistry;cosmochemistry;chemistry of planetary surfaces and planetary atmospheres;chemistry and exobiology;modeling and experimental chemistry
Section(s) CN : Physical chemistry, theoretical and analytic
Earth System: superficial envelopes

Astrochemistry is part of two themes that appear explicitly in the CNRS's 2019-2023 contract of objectives and performance: "Understanding the fundamental laws of the Universe" and "Observing the Universe". It needs to be supported as it receives little attention in France. The creation of a CNRS Junior Professor Chair in 2023 in one of the INC laboratories will strengthen this fundamental sector of French chemistry. In addition, supporting this scientific field will allow the INC to fit in with two of the priorities of the Law for Research Programming, which are "Progressing on the path of the origins of life and those of the human species" and "Other Earths in the universe?" (Report annexed to law n°2020-1674)
Stratégie du laboratoire d'accueil
Astrochemistry is an interdisciplinary science, investigated by various research teams at the CNRS, in strong interactions with the sciences of the universe, physics and engineering. Several laboratories of very high level can host a laureate on this theme. The 4 targeted laboratories (in alphabetical order: ISM, LCT, MONARIS, UMET) have been chosen among the best laboratories having the experience and the capacity to develop this scientific theme
Astrochemistry is a multidisciplinary science, internationally recognized with the involvement of major research institutes such as NASA or JAXA. The research developed is thus extremely competitive at the international level. The laureate will have to present an interdisciplinary profile and propose a network of collaborations with the major institutes and universities working on this field. Thus, an important involvement in national and international networks in astrochemistry will be appreciated, as well as links with the major national and international space agencies such as CNES, ESA, NASA and/or JAXA

Résumé du projet scientifique
The project will aim to understand the physico-chemical processes of organic molecule formation (in possible interactions with the minerals) in astrophysical environments or in solar system objects (surface or atmosphere), based on analytical chemistry developments and/or theoretical approaches that can support current or future space missions
Résumé du projet d'enseignement
Depending on the place of recruitment, the research theme of this CNRS Chair will be applied to the corresponding University. The laureate will contribute to the teaching of physical chemistry, chemical kinetics, analytical chemistry, theoretical chemistry, gas-phase analytical techniques, astrochemistry, cosmochemistry and chemistry of planetary atmospheres, visits to observatories, etc., at the bachelor's or master's level.

The dissemination of the results will be done through world-class scientific productions: publications, patents, software... In addition, the results will be communicated to various targets such as scientific communities, media, decision makers, general public, schools, etc., with an adapted calendar. Specific tools may be developed such as websites, newsletters, meetings, international symposia, summer schools and conferences.
The CNRS is developing a strong policy in favor of open science. Open science consists of making research results "as accessible as possible and closed as necessary". As such, the CNRS aims to make 100% of the texts of publications resulting from the work of its laboratories accessible , in particular through deposit in HAL. The data produced must also be made available and reusable, except for specific restrictions. In addition, the guiding principles of individual evaluation have been revised in accordance with the DORA declaration, to be more qualitative and to take into account all facets of the researcher's profession.
Science et société
The relationship between science and society is now recognized as a full dimension of scientific activity. The project will develop this dimension in synergy with all the partners. The resulting research work will contribute to informing public decision-making. Participatory science initiatives may be initiated with actors from the project’s socio-economic and cultural eco-system .
The activity will be evaluated in particular on the basis of scientific production (publications, software, patents, etc.), on institutional and private partnerships formalized by contracts, on international presence, on the promotion of work to multidisciplinary scientific communities, on innovation and its transfer to society and on scientific dissemination to non-specialist audiences.
