Postdoctoral Researcher Opportunity in The Agrofoglio Lab at Orleans University

The Agrofoglio Lab at Orleans University (France) is looking for post-doctoral fellows on organic chemistry with a particular emphasis on nucleoside chemistry. In recent years, the world has faced unprecedented challenges posed by emerging viral infections, which continue to threaten public health on a global scale. Traditional antiviral therapies often face limitations such as resistance development and adverse side effects. In response to this pressing need, there is a growing interest in the development of novel antiviral agents, particularly ribonucleoside analogs, which have shown promise in inhibiting viral replication.
