The student page


IRCELYON is very involved in training at all levels: from popularizing science to the public (“Fête de la Science”, etc.) to Masters courses and then training for young researchers during their theses and post-doctorates.

The teacher-researchers, as well as several researchers and ITA from the CNRS are the main players in these numerous training courses, where each one intervenes in fields where he has built up expertise. The academic staff of IRCELYON includes 14 teacher-researchers.

The students of the laboratory therefore have at their disposal a large pool of knowledge on which they can rely to complete their training or develop their research.

These courses cover fields as wide and varied as:

1) “Fête de la science” :

  • Fun popular experiences with the general public and accessible to children (Lorraine Christ, Aude Demessence)

2) University degree (Licence) of chemistry, chemistry-physics and maths-info :

10) CNRS training courses for companies :

  • Thermal analysis by DTA, DSC, TGA and coupling with MS and IR (Bernadette Jouguet and Aline Auroux)

These training courses are mainly carried out in the Lyon region, but some are given abroad as part of summer schools or specific training on a theme. :

  • Master of chemistry course in Russia on Methods related to Electron Microscopy for the study of catalysts and surface science techniques for the study of catalyst surfaces (Francisco Aires)

The training provided by IRCELYON staff members also affects the field of finance and accounting :

  • Course on the evolution of the financial and accounting regulations of CNRS and its impacts in management tools for managers and administrative and financial managers of the DR7 (Géraldine Chapuis)
