Opportunity: Postdoc COMPUTATIONAL SYSTEMS BIOLOGY for malaria research--Fontainebleau (France)
Submitted by Jean-Philippe Vert; posted on Tuesday, May 09, 2006
BACKGROUND:
A postdoctoral position in the field of computational systems biology for malaria research is available immediately at the Center for Computational Biology (CBIO), Ecole des Mines de Paris (France).
This project is part of a joint effort with the Pasteur Institute in Paris to identify and decipher the effect of new anti-malarial drugs. The CBIO at Ecole des Mines was established as a research center in 2006, focusing on the development of statistical and machine learning methods, in particular kernel methods and graphical models, to process and analyze biological and chemical data. It is located in the beautiful city of Fontainebleau, 50km south of Paris. Ecole des Mines is among the most prominent universities for scientific research and education in France. More information about the CBIO are available at http://cb.ensmp.fr .

RESPONSIBILITIES:
The successful candidate will apply and develop new mathematical models and computational methods to investigate the biology of Plasmodium falciparum, the parasite responsible for malaria, on a genome-wide scale by integrating various genomics and proteomics data generated recently by high-throughput technologies. Topics of interest include for example heterogeneous data integration for functional annotation, gene and metabolic network reconstruction, drug effect modeling, or identification of new drug targets.

REQUIREMENTS:
Applicants should have a PhD in mathematics, computer science, physics, bioinformatics, or in a biomedical science-related field with a strong background in bioinformatics and statistics. No background in malaria research is required, although some general knowledge of molecular biology would be a plus.

HOW TO APPLY:
Applicants should submit a summary of research interest, CV, reprints of main publications and names of at least three referees by e-mail to Isabelle Schmitt (Isabelle.Schmitt[at]ensmp.fr). More informations regarding this position can be obtained by contacting Jean-Philippe Vert, director of CBIO (Jean-Philippe.Vert[at]ensmp.fr).

DEADLINE:
The position will remain open until filled.
