Work Context

This research project will take place in the Laboratoire de Chimie Physique (LCP), under the responsability of Philippe Maître, CNRS senior research director. The research team currently consists in 2 PhD students, 1 assistant professor, an invited professor, and a research director. This team is part of the RISMAS group, one of the four research group at LCP. Two platforms will be used: SMAS and CLIO.

Technical support will be provided in mass spectrometry (1 IE CNRS), mechanical design and fabrication (1 AI CNRS) and electronics (1 AI CNRS).

This research project is cofounded by the Agence National de la Recherche (ANR) for two years.

Le projet de recherche est cofinancé par l'Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) pour deux ans. It is part of a collaboration with the team of Jean-François Benoist, professor at Université Paris-Sud, working at PROTECT (Univ. Paris Diderot), and head of a biochemistry laboratory in a university hospital at Robert Debré hospital (Paris).

Bimonthly one-day meetings of the two PIs will be organized to discuss and monitor the progress based on reports of the different persons involved.

LCP is a joint research laboratory (UMR 8000) of the Université Paris-Sud and CNRS, located on the campus of the faculty of science at Orsay (builidings 349, 350, and 201), and it includes nearly 130 persons, including 80 staff members. LCP aims at (i) performing fundamental research in physical chemistry in condensed phase, gas phase, as well as in life sciences, (ii) developping innovative methodologies, either experimental or numerical, (iii) contributing to the economical valorisation of these developments, (iv) ensuring the effective operation of plateforms CLIO, ELYSE, SMAS, and gamma source, (v) contributing to the teaching of physical chemistry at Université Paris-Sud.
