Postdoctoral position in Theoretical Biophysics in Montpellier, France : Gene Expression Modeling

A one year postdoctoral position in Theoretical

par Christelle EVE - publié le

A one year postdoctoral position in Theoretical Biophysics is available within the
“Complex Systems and Non-Linear Phenomena” group of the Laboratoire Charles
Coulomb (CNRS, University of Montpellier) located in the South of France (an extension may be possible depending on funding availability).

This position is funded by the LabEx (Laboratoire d’Excellence) NUMEV and the person hired will participle in a NUMEV Flagship Project, “Gene Expression Modeling” (GEM), devoted to the experimental and theoretical study
of genome-wide transcription and translation, as well as the coupling between these
two fundamental biological processes. This project involves a close collaboration
between biologists, bioinformaticians, and biophysicists. The role of the biophysicists
will be to model the motion of ribosomes and RNA polymerase along RNA and DNA,
respectively, which requires using the theory of out-of-equilibrium onedimensional
transport and polymer physics.

Candidates should have previous research experience in Theoretical Biophysics and
master both the theoretical and numerical methods of Statistical Physics appropriate to the study of complex biological systems.

Interested candidates with a Ph.D. and the appropriate experience are encouraged to
apply as soon as possible. The expected starting date is September 2018, although
some flexibility is possible.
