Chinese applicants to a PhD fellowship funded by the Chinese Scholarship Council are welcome. The PhD project will concern the design of biomimetic and diversity-oriented strategies to synthesize natural products and medicinally relevant analogues in a bioactive compound series. Contact: Dr. Bastien Nay. We are also looking for talented Chinese postdoc candidates.
Looking for a talented M2 student to work on the total synthesis of a polycyclic natural product at Ecole Polytechnique for 5 or 6 months between January and July 2017. The work will be performed at LSO (Laboratoire de Synthèse Organique), in a motivating international scientific atmosphere. Any motivated student can contact Bastien Nay for […]
Ombeline Sculfort started her PhD on 3rd October 2016, working on the evolution of chemical defences in mimetic butterfly communities. FR: Histoire d’une convergence évolutive : évolution des défenses chimiques au sein de communautés de papillons mimétiques. This is a collaboration with Dr. Violaine Llaurens and Dr. Marianne Elias at Museum. Welcome Ombeline!
