Methodological solid-state NMR developments for the structural determination of biopolymers
Offer N°: SL-DSM-15-0352
Much progress has recently been made in the field of solid-state NMR of proteins, with the first attempts to study membrane proteins, known to be difficult to solubilize or crystallize. Additionally, much biomolecular systems are built as a complex structure of different proteins or polymers, and present often an amorphous structure and a heterogeneous dynamics.
Software and hardware combined acceleration solution for operations research algorithms
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0335
The purpose of the thesis is to prepare the next generation of OR solvers. We will study the hardware acceleration possibility based on FPGA to run some or all of the OR algorithm. The blocks for which such a solution is not effective can be parallelized and executed on a standard computing platform. Thus, the proposed runtime correspond to a standard computing platform integrating FPGA. To access to this platform we require a set of tools.
Theoretical study of graphene-like materials
Offer N°: SL-DSM-15-0321
Two-dimensional materials are of significant interest for many applications in nano-science. Graphene is the prototype of this material family. It's potential applications cover the fields of nano-electronics but also the building block as a substrate for self-organization of nano-objects. However the absence of gap in raw graphene limit its potential applications for making transistors logic field effect.
Development of a “breath imager”: microtechnology applied to breath analysis by multidimensional chromatography
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0634
The detailed analysis of biomarkers present in the breath is a new field of research for a non-invasive early detection of given diseases, in particularly of given cancers. This thesis is part of a project aiming at the development of a new diagnostic tool for clinician that would allow patient breath sampling and its analysis through the generation of a 2D image by multidimensional comprehensive chromatography (GCxGC).
