Each year, our group welcome students at licence and Master levels, PhD and Postdocs (see list of former students).

PhDs and postdocs with their own fundings are welcome !

If you are interested by our chemistry, and want to know more about the subject we propose, or the available fundings (at PhD or postdoc level), please contact us via email : 

Prof. Yannick Landais: yannick.landais@u-bordeaux.fr

Applications are invited for two master 2 studentships starting February 2023. The position is open to all nationalities.

Project 1: Upcycling of polyolefin waste by C-H amination

The research project will focus on the development of new free-radical processes to activate C-H bonds with applications in organic chemistry.

Project 2 : A green access to polyurethanes from heterocycles

The research will first be devoted to the preparation of polyurethane foams from bis-heterocyclic compounds and polyols. In the second part of the project one will focus on the development of a new method to access the above heterocycles from bio-sourced aldehydes and CO2

Languages: English and/or French.

Candidates Profile: The candidate will hold a master 1 with a general background and a strong interest in organic chemistry. Knowledge of the fundamentals of radical chemistry would be welcome. He/she is expected to have a good practice of organic chemistry laboratory, experience in handling organometallic compounds under an inert atmosphere as well as in the application of a spectrum of diverse modern techniques (NMR, IR, MS,…).

If you are interested, please send a CV with a list of three references (including their address, email and telephone number) and a letter of motivation to the following address:yannick.landais@u-bordeaux.fr
