We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated post-doctoral candidates to work on a theoretical biophysics project aimed at understanding how the adaptive immune system recognizes and responds to pathogenic challenges, using techniques from statistical inference and machine learning. With the increasing deluge of data on immune repertoires, there is strong need for theories and computational techniques to decode immunity and its co-evolution with pathogens. The postdocs will take an active part in this endavour.
The post-doc will perform data analysis and theoretical modeling of the immune system. They will develop statistical mechanics methods and biophysics approaches to understanding the evolution of the immune system.
Post-doc candidates are expected to have solid experience in statistical physics, inference methods and data analysis, and both analytical and computer programming skills. Interest and possibly a previous experience in biology will be valuable. Their work will be fully interdisciplinary, including both elaboration of models and inference methods, sequence-data analysis and experimental data analysis in direct interaction with experimentalists.
Research will be conducted at the Ecole normale supérieure (part of PSL University), the leading academic and research institution in France located in the heart of the Latin quarter, among a high density of top research institutions. The postdocs will join a vibrant group of researchers working at the interface of physics and immunology, embedded in the exciting environment of a world-class physics department.
