We are always looking for talented and enthusiastic scientists. Available Postdoctoral and PhD positions will be advertised once the necessary funding is secured. Useful resources from UCLouvain can be found here and here for scientist with international mobility. Competitive grants are also available via the FNRS for PhD and Postdoctoral grants. Note that the calls for such grants is usually in January and in August.

If you are interested in joining our research group or are able to secure independent funding via, please contact Ludovic TROIAN-GAUTIER

Ludovic TROIAN-GAUTIER obtained his B.S. (2008), M.S (2010) and Ph.D in chemistry (2014) from the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB – Belgium) where he focused on the development of novel transition metal complexes for opto-electronic applications with Prof. C. Moucheron and Prof. A. Kirsch-De Mesmaeker. He then undertook post-doctoral research at X4C, a new start-up, where he worked with Prof. I. Jabin and Dr. A. Mattiuzzi on surface modification using calix[4]arene derivatives. At the end of 2015, he was awarded the Belgian American Educational Foundation (BAEF) fellowship, followed by the Bourse d’Excellence WBI.World (2016-2018) to undertake postdoctoral research with Prof. Gerald J. Meyer at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC). In April 2017, he joined the UNC Energy Frontier Research Center, the Alliance for Molecular PhotoElectrode Design for Solar Fuels (AMPED EFRC, directed by Pr. Thomas J. Meyer and Pr. Gerald J. Meyer), where he focused on the development of novel molecular photocatalysts and their use in the development of novel photoelectrodes that in turn can generate so-called “solar fuels”. He still holds a visiting scientist position at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (with Pr. Gerald J. Meyer) In May 2019, he started a Chargé de Recherche position (FNRS) at the Université libre de Bruxelles where he worked on energy related challenges. In October 2021, he received a Collaborateur Scientifique (F.R.S.-FNRS) position and was then promoted to Chercheur Qualifié (F.R.S.-FNRS) in October 2022 to continue pursuing research on energy related challenges at UCLouvain within the Institute of Condensed matter and Nanosciences - Molecular Chemistry, Materials and Catalysis Division (IMCN/MOST).
