Post-Doctoral Position In Organic Chemistry

Universities and Institutes of France


January 1, 2022


  • Organisation/Company: Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon
  • Research Field: Biological sciences › Biology Chemistry
  • Researcher Profile: Recognised Researcher (R2) Established Researcher (R3)
  • Application Deadline: 01/01/2022 00:00 - Europe/Athens
  • Location: France › Lyon
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Offer Starting Date: 01/02/2022
  • The successful candidate will be enrolled in a project focused on the investigation of an innovative and non-invasive approach to induce deep-tissue photodynamic therapy (PDT) with photosensitizer conjugated to nanoscintillators, nanoparticles able to down-convert X-rays into low energy photons that in turn will excite adjacent photosensitizers. As X-rays penetrate deeply into tissues, this approach could activate PDT at depth and potentially within larger tumours than PDT induce by light.

    The core task in this project is to develop new and original polymer scaffolds for the surface functionalization of various nanoscintillators (rare earth fluorides, oxides, etc.). The polymer shell will allow to enhance the nanoscintillator stability, bring plasma compatibility and low immunogenicity, but also allow conjugation of the NS with suitable photosensitizers and fluorophores.

    Offer Requirements Specific Requirements
  • PhD in Chemistry with strong background in experimental organic synthesis and characterization methods associated. Skills in the synthesis and characterization of polymers are desirable.
  • Excellent spoken and written English communication skills
