Opportunity: Researcher in COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY @ The Centre for Computational Biology -- Paris, France
Submitted by Jean-Philippe Vert; posted on Wednesday, December 19, 2012
The Centre for Computational Biology ( is a joint laboratory between MINES ParisTech, one of the most prominent French engineering school, and Institut Curie, a major hospital and research centre dedicated to cancer. We develop and apply original mathematical and computational methods for the processing, modelling and exploitation of biological, chemical and medical data. Our expertise in machine learning and statistics is dedicated to solving various challenges in life science and drug discovery, with a major focus on cancer research.

We benefit from an exceptional scientific environment with immediate access to experts and collaborators in biology and medicine, modern technological platforms such as sequencing, proteomics, microarrays or high-content screening, and a number of experts in mathematics and computer science within walking distance. The laboratory is located on the Paris campus of Institut Curie, near Pantheon, at the heart of a rich scientific and cultural environment.

This position is for a young researcher with exceptional research potential willing to attack new challenges in computational biology in an international, open-minded and multidisciplinary environment. The successful applicant will propose and develop an original research theme consistent with the laboratory's research fields. Projects should combine, where possible, strong methodological developments and relevant applications in biology and medicine. We are particularly keen on applications exploiting high-throughput genomic data to impact cancer research, and would consider favourably a strong expertise in any relevant domain of applied mathematics or computer science such as statistics, machine learning, signal processing, optimization, or discrete mathematics.

* PhD in bioinformatics, computer science, mathematics, physics, or any relevant field.
* A strong background in biology is not required, although a keen interest and prior exposure to inter-disciplinary research is a plus.

The position is on a fixed-term contract (tenure-track) normally leading to a tenure position within 3 years.

The job is located in downtown Paris, France.

To apply please prepare:
* a detailed CV
* a description of past research work with a list of publications
* a covering letter and a research project
* a list of three persons who could be contacted to provide recommendation

The documents should be sent by electronic mail to Isabelle.Schmitt[at]

For more information, do not hesitate to contact Jean-Philippe.Vert[at] (lab head)
