a PhD position in the SSP group (CIFRE scholarship with SANOFI)

We are looking for a Physicochemist, with experimentation skills, to join our group for a PhD project starting the academic year 2019/2020.

Title : Microfluidic approaches to crystallize different phases of an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient

Short abstract:

In pharmaceutical applications, a wide variety of solid forms may appear, such as polymorphs, solvates, microcrystalline solids, and amorphs. Here, we propose to study the impact of parameters, such as temperature, solute concentration and chemical composition on the solid form obtained using microfluidic setups1,2.
