MATHS/ALGORITHMICS for BIOLOGY POSTDOC POSITIONS at INRIA, posted August 20, 2011
Two postdoctoral positions of 1 year each with possible extension to a second year are available in the INRIA BAMBOO Team led by Marie-France Sagot in the framework of an ERC project, SISYPHE, on the mathematical and algorithmic exploration of symbiosis in biology (http://pbil.univ-lyon1.fr/members/sagot/htdocs/team/projects/sisyphe/sisyphe.html)
We are seeking highly qualified and motivated applicants in mathematics (combinatorics, graph theory, optimisation, probability) and/or algorithmics, with a strong interest for biological problems (modelling, problem solving, data analysis).
Alternatively, candidates with a background in theoretical biology (genetics, evolution, metabolism) and an extensive training in mathematics and/or algorithmics (co-phylogeny, rearrangements, networks, ...) are also welcome.
The applicants should have an open mind, enjoy working in close interaction with a team (the group and its various long-term international collaborators) and daily interacting with students and researchers from different disciplines.
We are interested in a range of topics related to the symbiotic relationship, and the evolutionary and functional implications of this relationship. The postdoctoral fellows will elaborate mathematical models and algorithms to analyse both publicly available and newly produced data. The specific project will be established together with the candidate.
The group is international with english as a common language. It is located in Lyon, a beautiful and lively city located at the kissing point of the Rhône and Saône rivers.
Please send your detailed application with the usual documents to: Marie-France.Sagot at inria.fr.
Unusual CVs are welcome.
