Postdoctoral position in organic chemistry/CAD and 3D printing

Updated: about 1 month ago
Location: Tremblay en France, LE DE FRANCE
Deadline: 31 Jul 2019

- organic chemistry work in the laboratory,
- computer-aided design (SolidWorks software) and 3D printing,
- NMR analysis, MS,....
- scientific and technical bibliography,

- writing reports and regular oral presentations (particularly to the Dassault Systems Foundation)

The 3DECON project, supported by the Dassault Systems Foundation, focuses on the use of continuous flow microreactors designed using 3D technology to decontaminate chemical warfare agents (CWA). The recruited person will be responsible for designing and testing microfluidic reactors for neutralizing organophosphorus and organosulfur agents. All tests will only be performed on mimes of legal CWA and reduced toxicity.
