Post-doctoral fellowship in Surface Organometallic Chemistry


Offer type: Post-doctoral fellowship
Duration: 24 months
Desired start date: September 16 2018
Workplace: Surface OrganoMetallic Chemistry Team
Laboratory of Chemistry, Catalysis, Polymers and Processes (UMR 5265)
CPE–Lyon ; Campus Lyon-Tech La Doua, 43 Bd du 11 Novembre 1918, Villeurbanne, FRANCE
Skill area: molecular chemistry, organometallic chemistry, catalysis (homogeneous and heterogeneous), coordination chemistry, surface science, nanochemistry.

Research project:

Catalysis is an essential tool of sustainable development, improving chemical industry’s competitiveness, while minimizing its environmental impact. The direct activation of carbon-hydrogen (C-H) bonds by organometallic catalysts could substantially impact the feedstock pool for tomorrow’s industry, allowing for the catalytic conversion of abundant alkanes into valuable functionalized organic compounds or the direct functionalization of organic products in an atom-efficient fashion. A current frontier area in organometallic catalysis is cooperative activity between two distinct metals in order to foster new transformations not possible with monometallic species. In particular, metal-metal synergistic effects are promising to promote the heterolytic cleavage of unactivated C-H bonds and opens attractive opportunities for unprecedented reactivity in catalysis.

This project aims at developing original well-defined heterobimetallic complexes at the surface of a solid support to lead to the discovery of original catalysts. Its chemical foundation is to take advantage of (1) metal-metal but also (2) metal-surface cooperative effects, if possible in combination, to achieve unprecedented and highly reactive active sites ultimately leading to new bond activation pathways / new catalytic transformations.

The outstanding quality of this research project has been recognized by the CNRS-MOMENTUM program, dedicated for “talented young scientists” (18 laureates/504 candidates), and which is financing this fellowship.

Presentation of the host laboratory:

This full-time 24 months post-doctoral position will be hosted in the Surface OrganoMetallic Chemistry Team of the Laboratory of Chemistry, Catalysis, Polymers and Processes (C2P2 - UMR 5265), located on the campus LyonTech-La Doua, France. The hosting team (14 permanent staff + ~ 25 graduate/post-graduate students) has a strong international recognition in the field of surface organometallic chemistry and catalysis, publishing in top, international peer-reviewed journals. This project will benefit from state of the art equipment directly available at the laboratory allowing the challenging synthesis and advanced characterization of compounds under inert atmosphere (Schlenk lines, gloveboxes, high-vacuum lines, liquid and solid-state NMR spectrometers, GC-MS, IR and UV-vis spectrometers, gas adsorption/desorption apparatus, batch and continuous-flow reactors, etc.).

Candidate Profile:

The candidate must hold a PhD in chemistry. The successful applicant is expected to have a solid background in organometallic chemistry and transition metal catalysis and be able to conduct challenging experiments under inert atmosphere (Schlenk-line and glovebox techniques) with great care and reproducibility. Rigor, patience and enthusiasm are invaluable competences to successfully carry on this research project. Interests/skills in surface

organometallic chemistry, nanochemistry and material science (sol-gel) are a plus. The applicant should be willing to work in an international research environment and have good communication skills in English (written and spoken).

Application procedure:

Applications should be sent by e-mail to the project supervisor, and contain:

  • A letter of intent, specifying when exactly the candidate might be able to start work
  • A detailed CV including previous research experiences and achievements
  • Two confidential recommendation letters to be sent directly from the writers to the project supervisor
