Corporate mobility : Impacts on life domains and implications for work-life balance of international business travelers and expatriates

Tretyakevich, Natalia ; Maggi, Rico (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2016 ; 2016ECO001.

In my dissertation I aim to explore the impacts of work-related mobility on job, family life and personal well-being of the travelling employees. To do so, three studies have been conducted with the purpose to investigate business travel behavioral patterns and impacts of work-related mobility on various life domains of the three segments, namely frequent corporate business travelers,...

Dalle apparenze alle inferenze: i predicati sembrare e apparire come indicatori argomentativi

Musi, Elena ; Rocci, Andrea (Dir.) ; Miecznikowski, Johanna (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Università della Svizzera italiana, 2016 ; 2016COM001.

This dissertation focuses on the role played by evidential strategies in argumentative discourse, taking as a case the Italian verbs of appearance sembrare and apparire. It contributes to the stream of research on argumentative indicators, i.e. those linguistic clues which can be exploited by an analyst to reconstruct the unfolding of arguments in a text. Evidential strategies are linguistic...

Le dossier de formation: un outil pour la réflexion sur les expériences professionnelles et le développement de compétences d'autorégulation

Mauroux, Laetitia ; Gurtner, Jean-Luc (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2014.

Se former dans le champ de la formation professionnelle engendre actuellement de nombreux challenges pour les apprentis. (afin d’alléger le texte, seul le masculin sera utilisé, étant entendu qu’«apprenti» se décline au masculin comme au féminin). Ils poursuivent le double objectif de se qualifier tout en étant directement intégrés au monde du travail. Ils doivent rapidement...

Exploring new avenues for Arene-Ruthenium complexes : coordination to [60]fullerene, hydrogen bonding assemblies and liquid-crystalline materials

Appavoo-Gupta, Divambal ; Deschenaux, Robert (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2015.

The thesis aims at using arene-ruthenium complexes as building blocks for the synthesis of diverse compounds to obtain potential mesomorphic and/or biological properties. The thesis consists of three main projects. The first project deals with supramolecular assemblies. New supramolecular di- and tetranuclear ruthenium arrangements, the latter bearing a cavity, were designed. H-bonding was...

L'effet du bilinguisme sur la mémoire de travail : comparaisons avec des monolingues et étude du changement de langue dans des tâches d'empan complexe

Perriard, Benoît ; Camos, Valérie (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2015.

The aim of this thesis was to study the effect of bilingualism and language switching on working memory capacity. Research in bilingualism and cognition highlighted that both languages from a bilingual individual are always activated (e.g., Hoshino & Kroll, 2008). According to the Inhibition Control model (Green, 1998), a bilingual person has to inhibit the language not required in order to speak...

State of the art and new perspectives in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of eating disorders : a contribution to an etiological model of eating disorders - sociocultural risk factors and the role of body-related cognitive distortions

Wyssen, Andrea ; Munsch, Simone (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2015.

On the basis of the German S3-guidelines, this thesis provides a comprehensive overview of the state of the art for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of eating disorders (EDs). Publication 1 constitutes a critical review of the guidelines regarding their applicability to the clinical practice in Switzerland. The importance of early detection and accurate diagnosis of subthreshold and...

Metallic Ruthenium nanoparticles intercalated in hectorite for highly selective catalytic hydrogenations

Sun, Bing ; Süss-Fink, Georg (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2015.

The design of nanocomposites consisting of functional metals and proper matrices is a very active field of research for the development of recyclable catalysts. Highly active metallic nanoparticles must be stabilized by a suitable support in order to prevent aggregation to bulk metal. Hectorite, a representative smectite clay featured by its unique swelling properties and flexible intercalation...

Insight into the rules dictating the formation of arene ruthenium metalla-assemblies

Garci, Amine ; Therrien, Bruno (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2015.

The self-assembly process is a natural phenomenon with the ability to organize biological systems. Its development by chemists as a synthetic process allowed the formation of esthetical structures as well as highly complex supramolecular systems with remarkable biological functions. Since 1990, metal directed self-assembly strategy has largely contributed to the design and synthesis of discrete...

Three essays on portfolio management

Guidotti, Ivan ; Dubois, Michel (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2015 ; 2506.

This dissertation is constituted of three distinct chapters. The first two study the information role of sell-side analysts from two specific angles of attack. The first chapter focuses on the investment value of target prices. Based on a sample of more than 590’000 expected return revisions over the 1999-2011 period, I construct tercile portfolios that buy (sell) stocks with the highest...

Identification and characterization of putative Toc159 interacting partners

Montandon, Cyrille ; Kessler, Felix (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2015.

The chloroplast is the distinctive organelle of land plants and other photosynthetic eukaryotes. It carries out a variety of metabolic process, but photosynthesis is its main task and this is reflected in its structures and protein composition. Chloroplasts evolved from an endosymbiosis between a photosynthetic cyanobacterium and an ancestral eukaryote. Reminiscent of this autonomous origin, the...
