Job descriptionWe wish to address the challenge of providing new porous materials for gas sensing applications or binding small molecules in a real-environment. Our main concerns will thus aim to prepare well-defined porous solids with a high stable structure and high affinity for carbon monoxide (CO) even in presence of humidity conditions.
The project will be dedicated to the preparation of new families of organic materials belonging to the Porous Organic Framework (POFs), that are booming worldwide in the last 5 years. The proposed concept relies on P2DA team’s knowhow in porphyrinoid chemistry (porphyrins, corroles) and the functionalization of porous materials in view to prepare materials and SAW sensors with a very high sensitivity for CO.
The project is in close collaboration between ICMUB and FEMTO-ST (Dr. V. Blondeau-Patissier).
Monthly gross salary = 2500 euros (2840 US dollars)
Monthly net salary = 1900 euros (2160 US dollars).
Host Laboratory:ICMUB – UMR CNRS 6302 Team “Polyamines, Porphyrins, Developments and Applications”
The candidate must present high expertise in organic synthesis (multi-step syntheses) and coordination chemistry as well as research at the interface between chemistry and materials. The candidate should be a trained organic chemist (with a significant experience in the chemistry of porphyrins and related macrocycles), familiar with modern synthetic methodologies and purification techniques. Chemist exhibiting a specific interest for the design and spectroscopic characterization of porous materials (MOF, POF, COF…) will be preferred. Knowledge and skill in coordination chemistry will be also appreciated.
