The Catalysis and Solid Chemistry Unit (UMR 8181 CNRS) brings together 105 researchers and research professors, 32 technical and administrative support staff, and an average of 80 doctoral students and 20 post-doctoral researchers. The unit is spread over several sites in Lille and Lens. The researcher will work at the Villeneuve d'Ascq site, in the buildings of two of the unit's supervisory bodies, the University of Lille and the Ecole Centrale de Lille.
The unit's scientific activities are divided into three fields: heterogeneous catalysis, catalysis and molecular chemistry, and solid chemistry. Within the heterogeneous Catalysis axis, the researcher will work under the responsibility of the researcher from the VAALBIO team (Valorisation des Alcanes et de la Biomasse).

As part of the CatBioInnov project, the student will study the performance of inorganic support catalysts in the hydrodeoxygenation reaction (HDO) reaction of bio-oil. He/she will establish correlations between catalyst formulation and catalytic properties (activity, selectivity, stability), and determine the optimal operating conditions for each reaction. For the development of these new catalysts, a detailed knowledge of the reaction mechanism is required.
