Graduates of this Master’s degree go on to conduct basic and applied research in the fields of analytical chemistry, marine chemistry and biogeochemistry, and the functioning of marine ecosystems. They contribute to the dissemination of knowledge, and can ensure education and awareness activities for various publics in these fields. They develop and implement study strategies and surveys, and optimize experimental techniques. They provide scientific expertise and consulting services within various marine environment authorities. They draft scientific reports and articles, and organize scientific activities within their field.
To these ends, the graduates draw on their multidisciplinary knowledge in theoretical and applied chemistry, marine biology, physical oceanography and marine geosciences. They capitalize on the basic concepts of marine chemistry. They know how to use and interpret the results of modern analytical techniques (mass spectrometry, ICP-MS, GC, HPLC, spectroscopy, electrochemical techniques) available in research, industrial or control laboratories. They are capable of developing an independent scientific approach to address an environmental issue (state of an ecosystem, predicting its evolution, etc.). They implement field sampling techniques and laboratory experimental protocols, and interpret the data obtained. They are also capable of summarizing oral and written scientific papers.
