A postdoc position is available in the laboratory of Prof. Yann Garcia @UCLouvain, a top university in Belgium. His group focuses on molecular magnetic materials and hybrid materials presenting diverse properties ( spin crossover , photomagnetism , fluorescence, sensing, antibacterial, cytotoxicity). Knowledge and practice of coordination chemistry and synthetic skills of organic ligands are necessary.
Keywords: Molecular magnetism, coordination polymers, multifunctional materials, spin crossover, sensors, photochemistry, hybrids
This position will be awarded for one year with possible extension up to three years in total, after evaluation, with a start scheduled no later than Sept. 2021.
Applicants with a PhD awarded before 2018 or having studied or worked in Belgium for more than 2 years in the 3 years immediately prior to the starting date of the project will not be considered.
