Postdoctoral position for mathematical modelling of biological networks open

Postdoctoral position for mathematical modelling of biological networks
in a Computational Cancer Systems Biology project at Institut Curie (Paris, France)
(18 to 36 months temporary position)

A postdoctoral position for mathematical modelling of biological networks is open at Institut Curie, Paris (http://www.curie.fr), a major cancer research and treatment institute.

The successful candidate will work in the Department of "Bioinformatics and Computational Systems Biology of Cancer" (U900 Department, http://u900.curie.fr), joint Unit from institut Curie, INSERM and Mines ParisTech. The Department comprises 80 persons (biostatisticians, mathematicians, physicians, biologists, physicists and computer scientists) and deals with the integration and computational analysis of large scale data in projects devoted to improve our understanding of tumor progression and to develop new therapeutic strategies.
The position is open in the "Computational Systems Biology of Cancer team" (http://sysbio.curie.fr ).

The candidate will work in the frame of a computational systems biology project devoted to understanding molecular mechanisms involved in early invasion of breast cancer cells into the normal tissue epithelial to mesynchemal transition, regulation of cell adhesion and cell motility).
The project will be done in tight collaboration with a group of Institut Curie, performing tumor invasion experimental assays.

We expect the candidate to have a PhD in applied mathematics or bioinformatics.
He/she should have experience in modeling biological networks and understand the molecular biology of cell signalling. Excellent communication skills and team spirit, and a capacity to work in autonomy are essential.

The candidates should send a letter of motivation, a CV, reprints of their main publications and three references to bcsb64 @ curie.fr.

The position can start immediately.
