Self-assembly of amphiphilic block copolymers is a promising strategy to design nanomaterials with unique functions especially for health and personal care applications (e.g., delivery of active ingredients and biomaterials). In this context, polymerization-induced self-assembly (PISA) is a simple, and easily up-scalable process for accessing amphiphilic polymers with simultaneous formulation of nanoparticles at high solid contents. The present research project proposes the aqueous ring-opening polymerization of N-carboxyanhydride (NCA) monomers to enable the design of amphiphilic polymers and of corresponding nanomaterials, in a challenging context where NCA monomers are currently used in anhydrous conditions to protect them from hydrolysis.


The candidate will work in the team “Polymer self-assembly and life sciences” of the LCPO in Pessac, France, in close collaboration with Aquitaine Science Transfert and an industrial collaborator (https://www.ast-innovations.com/).
