Offre de post-doc à Grenoble

par Secretaire - 7 juin 2017

A Post-doctoral fellowship is opened at at the department of molecular chemistry at Grenoble, France.

In an alpine setting and a remarkable scientific environment, the University of Grenoble welcomes more than 7000 PhD and post-doctoral students each year.

• Immediate opening • Net salary : from 1900 to 2600 €/month (depending on experience) + benefits. • Minimum duration : one year.

Objectives : Our group aims to synthesize and study stable versions of species that are usually considered as elusive and non-observable, at the frontiers of organic chemistry. For example, our recent works include a new type of isolable carbene (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2017, 56, p1031) or unprecedented oxyallyl radical functionalities (Chem. Commun. 2016, 52, p11422 ; Organic Chemistry Frontiers, 2015, 2, p1536 ; Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2013, 52, p7014) Computational studies provide essential guidelines to tackle our synthetic challenges. This postdoctoral position is opened to support our actual project on the design of original biradicaloid functionalities, for which DFT approaches are known to be dramatically inaccurate. The post-doctoral fellow will be in charge of the theoretical facets of the project. Using high level “ab initio” approaches (typically : CASSCF, CASPT2, etc) (s)he will provide accurate predictions (singlet–triplet gap, energies of excited states, etc…) in order to guide the experimental team towards the synthesis of relevant and viable targets, as well as to understand the properties of the new synthesized molecular objects.

Applicant profile : The successful candidate will have expertise in high-level multiconfigurational calculations on excited states and familiar with Molcas and/or Orca softwares. An open mind and broader chemical culture will also be key assets for interacting with the experimental team. Note that, although not mandatory, a motivated fellow may also have the opportunity to participate to the experimental work.

Further information and application : Contact Dr David Martin by email ( ASAP. Please attach a letter of motivation, CV, list of publications and recommendation letter(s) (pdf format).
