A postdoctoral position is available in Amiens (France). This position is proposed by the two CNRS chemistry laboratories settled in Amiens: the UMR 6007 (Laboratoire de Réactivité et de Chimie des Solides, one of the leader in Li-ion batteries researches) and the UMR 6219 (Laboratoire des Glucides, specialized in the transformation of biomass products).
In the course of our researches about the development of new possibilities for the storage of energy in order to reduce the environmental impact of existing technologies, we are proposing a postdoctoral position (12 months, renewable).
The aim is to prepare new organic materials starting from renewable resources in order to develop electrodes for Li-ion batteries able to compete with the available inorganic materials generally used.
We need a skilled organic chemist, with a strong motivation to succeed and a real wish to add to his background strong knowledge in the field of Li-ion batteries, a really hot and rewarding topic today.
The ideal applicant, holder of a PhD, has solid experience of organic synthesis and is fully independent in his researches.
Experience in Green Chemistry can be a plus.
French citizens and foreigners are welcome to apply for this postdoctoral position.
Application Deadline 10 August 2010
