Opportunity: Tenure-track researcher @ Ecole des Mines de Paris--France
Submitted by Jean-Philippe Vert; posted on Monday, March 19, 2007
The Centre for Computational Biology at the Ecole des Mines de Paris ( develops and applies original mathematical and computational methods for the processing, modelling and exploitation of biological, chemical and medical data. Research projects involve a staff of eight, including three research academics specializing in statistics, machine learning and structural biology. Their work focuses in particular on the modelling and integration of heterogeneous genomic and chemical data in functional and structural genomics, on systems biology, on the development of specific computational tools for processing data derived from new biomedical technologies, and on drug discovery through structural modelling and virtual screening. Therapeutic applications refer in particular to malaria, sleeping sickness and cancer. Most of the research projects are conducted in close collaboration with academic and industrial partners, in France and internationally.

Within the context of its development and the establishment of closer links with the Institut Curie, the largest research institute in France devoted to cancer research, which is to lead in 2008 to the installation of the laboratory on the campus of the Institut Curie in central Paris (near the Panthéon), the Centre for Computational Biology wishes to recruit a tenure-track researcher for a fixed-term contract, likely to lead in the medium term to a tenured research academic position.

The successful applicant will propose and develop an original research theme consistent with the laboratory’s research fields. Projects proposed will include, where possible, strong methodological developments and will be motivated by pertinent applications in biology and medicine. Applications related to computational and systems biology of cancer will be particularly appreciated in view of the future role to be played by the laboratory within the Institut Curie, a leading actor in cancer research in France. According to his/her specific skills, the applicant may also be required to contribute to the teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level at the Ecole des Mines de Paris. He/she may also be required to supervise students at the undergraduate or graduate level.

The vacancy is for a researcher with a PhD? in mathematics, computer science, biology or any relevant field. Post-doctoral experience in computational biology and in a laboratory outside of France would be a strong asset. The applicant should also possess the dynamism, open-mindedness and communication skills required to define an ambitious and original research project which, if possible, could involve academic and industrial partners.

Tenure-track full-time position.

Salary commensurate with experience

An application file should include:
- 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 a letter of recommendation.

The file should be sent by postal or electronic mail to: Isabelle Schmitt (Isabelle.Schmitt[at], Center for Computational Biology, Ecole des Mines de Paris, 35 rue Saint-Honoré, 77300 Fontainebleau, France
