Applications are always welcome.  If you wish to enter the doctoral school for a PhD in chemistry or in biochemistry, or if you are looking for a postdoc position, please send your application directly to (preferably with cover letter, curriculum vitæ, list of publications, two letters of recommendation).

English is the language of the group and the department, knowledge of French is not required for a fruitful postdoc experience.  Enthusiasm for multistep organic synthesis is important (exceptions are possible).  Similarly important is a broad horizon, scientific breath, and optional interest for research at the interface of biological, supramolecular and/or materials chemistry (photosystems, transport, sensing).

For further inquiries, please contact .

If you like to apply for a personal fellowship to support your time in Geneva, you could consider Marie Curie, Ambizione or Swiss Excellence Scholarships.
