Postdoctoral Fellows

ERC Project CARBONFIX: Funding is available for a postdoctoral fellow interested in developing catalytic reaction networks inspired by metabolic carbon fixation pathways.   Expertise in electrochemistry is an asset. Highly motivated candidates should send their CV to

Candidates from Germany or the UK: Special funding opportunities are available for postdoctoral fellows who are citizens of Germany (at any time) or the UK (application deadline in early January). Candidates should forward a CV and contact information to

Marie Curie Fellowships: Our group has already been very successful in obtaining such fellowships. Applications from postdoctoral candidates of any nationality with a strong CV who are not already working France are encouraged. Please get in touch with Joseph as early as possible since applications are typically due in September. You will be given full support in crafting a high quality application.  Candidates should forward a CV and contact information for two references to

Doctorants / PhD Students

FRC Fellowships: The Ernest Solvay Fund and the FRC Foundation generously offer several PhD fellowships specifically for the University of Strasbourg. These are typically awarded to students coming from outside of France. The next deadline is likely in November 2017. Please get in touch with Dr. Moran as soon as possible regarding this application.

MRT Fellowships: About 14 PhD fellowships in chemistry are available each year to students of any nationality. However, in my experience students who have done at least part of their Masters in France with high marks have the best chance of success. Applications are typically due in April to start a PhD in October. Further instructions  can be found here. Short-listed candidates will be contacted and required to give an on-site interview and research presentation in June.

Master’s Projects

Highly motivated candidates should send their CV and a transcript of their marks to Candidates should contact me in fall 2017 for a project starting in early 2018.
