This postdoc position (organic synthesis and coordination chemistry) is associated with the LabEx Michem Sorbonne Universités within the axis chemistry for health dedicated to innovative research tools for targeted drug delivery in the treatment of cancer.
This project aims at engineering and studying molecular multifunctional hybrid systems with both magnetic and anticancer properties providing simultaneously both magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and active targeted drug delivery.
Project title: Magnetic anti-cancer Iron-[2-hydroxypyridine-1,2,4-triazole] agents for targeted drug delivery and bimodal imaging.
Experimental work in organic synthesis and coordination chemistry for the design, synthesis and characterization of new transition metal complexes based on 2-hydroxypyridine-1,2,4-triazole (N,O) tridentate ligands.
Magnetic measurement and evaluation of fluorescence properties as well as biological tests on complexes will be carried out.
The researcher will work in two IPCM laboratories: ChemBio and ERMMES teams (organic and coordination chemists).
PhD in chemistry with a strong background in organic synthesis and knowledge and skills in coordination chemistry (synthesis under inert atmosphere, characterization of metal complexes, reactivity studies on metal complexes).
Experience in fluorescence spectroscopy will be appreciated but not mandatory. Applicants are expected to be creative, autonomous and very enthusiastic about working in an interdisciplinary and challenging research field.
