The master’s degree in chemistry, supported by the Fédération de Chimie de Université Paris Cité (FedCUP), offers internship offers in different laboratories (ITODYS, LCBPT, LEM, LIED, CiTCoM, LISA, Institut Pasteur, IPGP, UTCBS and LBT) in order to cover the fields of skills of the 4 master’s itineraries (physical chemistry, organic chemistry, materials chemistry and analytical chemistry). In addition, the internship unit also supports students who would like to do one of the two internships abroad or in industry.
The Interfaces Treatments Organization and Systems Dynamics laboratory – ITODYS, UMR7086 is a joint unit of Paris Diderot University and the CNRS (UMR 7086) attached to the CNRS chemistry institute and its sections 13 and 15 of the national committee.
The laboratory develops research activities around surface chemistry, interfaces, nanomaterials and nanosystems and molecular chemistry for nanosciences. The broad thematic spectrum explores different aspects of the chemistry-physics of molecules, nanosystems and nanomaterials: Nanoelectrochemistry, molecular plasmonics, electrochemical biosensors, functionalized and nano-structured surfaces, organic electronics, nanomaterials and hybrid materials, supramolecular assemblies, molecular modeling are the themes the most salient. The laboratory has a fleet of equipment for the characterization of materials, surfaces and nano-systems (SEM, AFM, XPS, X-ray diffractometry, Raman, IR, SECM, GC-MS, NMR, etc.). This equipment is supplemented by an activity of a theoretical nature, which benefits from access to both internal and external calculation means.
Located in the heart of Paris at the Centre Universitaire des Saints Pères of the University Paris Cité, the laboratory of Chemistry and Biochemistry (LCPBT) is a CNRS-Paris Cité joint research unit conducting research at the interface between chemistry and life sciences. The research activity of the Lab is devoted to fundamental research. It relies on one side on the study of biological mechanisms at the molecular or supramolecular level (metabolism, chemical mediation, signalization pathways) and their involvement in physiological or pathological regulations. It relies on the other side on the study of fundamental molecular, supramolecular and surface reactivity and the development of molecular tools (probes, markers, sensors) to decipher biochemical mechanisms or identify/characterize/interact with new therapeutic targets. The different teams of the unit have a recognized know-how ranging from organic and inorganic chemistry to systems biology, through bio-organic, bio-inorganic and physical chemistry (vibrational an electronic spectroscopies, NMR, EPR), pharmacochemistry, toxicology and immunology.
The Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Tomorrow’s Energies (LIED) has the founding objective of developing « energy ecology », by carrying out both scientific and technical research guided by the problems to be resolved within the framework of the energy transition and increasing global energy needs.
It responds to the need for an interdisciplinary approach to the problems posed, by bringing together members – academics or from companies – from the Science sectors (Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Engineering Sciences, Earth Sciences ) and Human and Social Sciences (Anthropology, Economy, Geography, History, Philosophy, Ecology, Political Sciences, Sociology).
Research at LEM addresses the fundamental aspects of chemical reactivity for organic compounds, metal/organometallic complexes, redox enzymes or even biological macromolecules such as DNA, both in solution and immobilized on the surface. electrodes. More specific efforts aim to understand the activation processes of small molecules (proton, O2, H2O, CO2) by catalysts or the mechanisms of electron transport in biological structures. The spirit being above all to rationalize and if possible predict the behavior of the systems studied and then try to export this new knowledge towards more finalized problems such as the valorization of CO2 by electrochemical means, the production of hydrogen by catalytic reduction protons, or the development of new electroanalytical methodologies for the detection of molecules of biological interest.
The Laboratory of Theoretical Biochemistry (LBT, or Laboratoire de Biochimie Théorique, CNRS UPR9080) is one of five laboratories within the Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique (IBPC) in Paris. The field of research is theoretical and computational biochemistry, at the interface between biology, chemistry, physics, and computing.
The strategic objectives are twofold: invent simulation algorithms to reproduce and predict physical properties of biomolecules either in vitro or in the cell, and understand the molecular or conformational factors responsible for the biology of living systems and diseases. The equilibrium between the two is a key feature of the LBT.
