In the framework of a MIS research project financed by the FNRS (National Science Foundation in Belgium), the research division of organic chemistry (UCO) of the chemistry department of the University of Namur announces the availability of a full time Post-Doc position in the field of organic synthesis and Lewis acid-base catalysis.

As a postdoctoral researcher with good theoretical and practical knowledge of organic and organometalic chemistry you will investigate the development of synthetic routes towards new boron Lewis acids, catalysts and receptors.


The ideal candidate is a highly talented and motivated researcher who received his PhD in organic or organometallic chemistry less than 5 years ago. Very good knowledge and experience in preparative purification techniques, handling of highly reactive species (Schlenk-line and glove-box techniques) and structural characterization of organic molecules is expected.
