The aim of the doctorate in chemistry is to train high-level scientific researchers. To this end, you put your knowledge to good use, acquire new ones and make a significant effort to think, in addition to demonstrating scientific rigor. It is through your research project that you will be able to develop your creativity and reveal all your originality. The doctorate concludes with the writing and defense of a thesis. The doctorate in chemistry lasts on average between 4 and 5 years.

All areas of chemistry are covered in our doctoral program, whether in environmental chemistry, energy chemistry, spectroscopy, organic, bio-organic or inorganic synthesis or even physical or theoretical chemistry. You are integrated into a research group from the start of your studies and carry out your laboratory research work independently throughout your doctorate. The projects take place in close collaboration between you, the research team and your research director, and you benefit from a personalized program. You benefit from unique mentoring, since you are supported by a thesis committee made up of 2 other faculty members in addition to your thesis director. You have 1 to 2 courses to complete and you must pass the general comprehensive exam and present a mid-term doctoral seminar. Finally, you must write a doctoral thesis and defend it in front of a jury.

To access the doctorate in chemistry, you must have completed a North American master's degree or a European master's degree (M2) or do a direct transfer after a year of master's degree in our department. Direct admission to the doctorate after the North American baccalaureate is also possible with an excellent academic record. You must have research experience, wish to continue your studies and aspire to be a leader of tomorrow in your field of chemistry research. You like working in the laboratory or with instrumentation in a specific field of chemistry that excites you. You want to acquire solid research training to work in the industrial environment or pursue postdoctoral studies in order to pursue a career in academia.
