Postdoc in organic polymer synthesis
Department of Chemistry, Universite de Montreal
A full-time position is available in early 2024 for a postdoctoral researcher in organic polymer synthesis. The position is located at the Chemistry Department at the Université de Montreal in Montreal, Canada. The candidate should possess a strong expertise in the areas of organic polymer synthesis, polymer characterization, and monomer synthesis. The research project will involve thermally and photochemically synthesizing multi-responsive thin polymer films and their opto-electronic characterization using different spectroscopic and electrochemical techniques. The applicant should have received their Ph.D. within the past 3 years in one of the following areas: polymer synthesis, polymer engineering with synthesis, or organic synthesis. Experience in electrochemical measurements (cv, dpv, etc.), spin coating, handling air/moisture sensitive compounds, and metal evaporation would be an asset. Salary and benefits of the position are defined by the university’s SERUM. Interested applicants are invited to send their c.v. and cover letter indicating the relevance of previous experience to the position to w.skene (at) umontreal.ca.
