Scientific Responsible name : Loïc CHARBONNIERE
Type of Contract : PhD Student contract / Thesis offer
Contract Period : 36 months
Start date of the thesis : 1 October 2020
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : 2 135,00 € gross monthly

Description of the thesis topic

The thesis will aim at developing new luminescent lanthanide complexes within the frame of photonic upconversion. The candidate will have to present strong skills in organic synthesis and in coordination chemistry. He/she will have to study the coordination properties of the lanthanide ions by various physico-chemical (potentiometry, electrochemistry) and spectroscopic (NMR, infrared, UV-Vis absorption and luminescence) means. Ultimately, the as obtained complexes will be studied for biological labeling.

Work Context

The work will take place within the SynPA team (Synthèse pour l'Analyse) of the pluridisciplinary Hubert Curien institute (IPHC, UMR 7178) of Strasbourg on the CNRS campus of Cronenbourg. The PhD student will be registered at doctoral school of Strasbourg (ED 222) and will have to follow the rules of the ED. She/he will be supervised by the leader of the team, Dr Loïc Charbonnière, specialist in f elements chemistry, and by Dr Aline Nonat.

Constraints and risks

The thesis being financed by the national research agency (ANR), biannual reports will have to be delivered to other partners of the project.

Additional Information

Expected skills :
- Strong background in organic synthesis and characterization of the compounds (NMR, IR, mass spectrometry)
- Skills in coordination chemistry and characterization of the complexes
- English: read, written and spoken
- Bibliographic research
- Spectroscopy (absorption spectroscopy and luminescence spectroscopy)
- Knowledges in NMR of paramagnetic compounds
