A PhD position is open at the Université de Bordeaux, France , to develop Fluorescence Microscopy and MicroFluidics for the study of MicroGels ( details below ). The PhD student will be hired within the Franco-Indian Network MicroMat. The student will perform research in two laboratories at the Université de Bordeaux: the Institut des Sciences Moléculaires (ISM), supervised by Pr. A. Del Guerzo, and the Institut de Chimie de la Matière Condensée de Bordeaux (ICMCB), supervised by Dr. C. Aymonier and Dr. S. Marre. The student has to enrol in the PhD program of the Université de Bordeaux, which will provide the development of soft-skill qualifications, and optionally French language classes. The network includes researchers of the IISER of Kolkata, lead by Dr. S. Banerjee, and IISc Banaglore, lead by Pr. U. Maitra, which can be visited if relevant. The PhD candidate will obtain a fellowship from CEFIPRA, through the organisation “Campus France”, for 36 months. It will include an allowance at the end of each month and health insurance, as well as help for visa application.
In Bordeaux, we are looking for candidates, without gender discrimination, with interest in nanomaterials, fluorescence, microscopy, photochemistry, microfluidics, and materials characterization. Goals of the PhD project include the exploration of soft materials and biomaterials, which possess a hierarchical structures that stretches from the nano- to the microscale. Microfluidics will be developed to obtain microgels and study critical parameters for their formation (at ICMCB). Meanwhile, fluorescence microscopy and nano-photochemistry will be used to develop and characterize the properties of optically active microgels, as well as the bioactivity of microgels (at ISM). Both microfluidics and microscopy will be combined to study single micro-gels particles. Possible applications include 3D-structured optical materials and bioactive materials.
Candidates should possess a Masters Degree in Chemistry, Physical Chemistry, Materials Science, or Physics (only if specialized in optics/microscopy). To apply , please send exclusively by e-mail: a letter of motivation, diplomas with grades, English proficiency evidence, and an extended CV (including list of publications, list of skills, and contact information of at least 2 references, all in pdf in 1 e-mail, 10 MB max.). Letters of recommendation can be included, or sent separately by the reference.
e-mail address: [email protected]
Deadline: Applications are accepted anytime, and the position can be filled, and become unavailable, as soon as a candidate is hired. It is recommended to apply asap. Starting date will be discussed with the candidate, and can occur in October/November 2023.Requirements
