The Graduate School of Engineering for Chemistry, Biology and Physics in Bordeaux (ENSCBP), which is part of the Bordeaux Institute of Technology (IPB), is publishing its annual call for applications for the Joussot-Dubien award. We are seeking candidates with an excellent curriculum and who are currently studying Chemistry or Food Science in a country other than France. The award of 10 000 euros should help them to cover their living costs for one year of studies at ENSCBP. The candidate’s level of education should correspond to a bachelor degree or higher. They can enter our graduate school at the 4th or 5th year level of higher education..


  • Amount of the award : 10 000 euros
  • Who can apply : Students currently studying outside of France and having already obtained a bachelor level in Chemistry (Physical-Chemistry, Materials Science, Polymers, Analytical Chemistry) or Food Science.
  • Deadline : 1 May 2013
  • Starting date of studies : September 2013
  • Place of studies : ENSCBP Bordeaux, France

One of the different options the awardee can choose of, is to enroll for the Master of Science Micro- and Nanotechnology which is entirely in English.


Astrium, an EADS company, number 1 in europe and number 3 worldwide in space industry, is proud to support the Joussot Dubien award as a demonstration that the international scientific
and technologic exchanges are the key for innovations and breakthroughs for future industrial applications.
Astrium is investing in a long term view with top scientific teams and high level education schools such as ENSCBP to prepare future space industry challenges and engineers.



This award has been created to honor the life of Professor Jacques Joussot-Dubien (1928-2009), director of ENSCBP from 1982 to 1986 in recognition of his very important impact on the future development of the graduate school as well as his actions in favor of international scientific exchanges. He was not only the key figure in establishing a graduate school closely connecting Chemistry and Physics, but also an outstanding scientist with the highest national and international recognition especially in the field of photochemistry. Having himself performed a large part of his studies abroad (Bachelor of Science in Chemistry at Swarthmore College, Pennsylvania in 1949, followed later by a post-doc at the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute, New York) he was always very open for hosting foreign students either at the graduate school or in his research laboratory. It is therefore more than natural that this award carries his name and will in this way contribute to keep alive the memory of an exceptional person.
